Mubende CAO Seeks Advice on IGG's Directives

The Mubende District Chief Administrative Officer, Lillian Nakamatte, has sought the Solicitor General's advice on how to implement the Inspector General of Government's recommendations of disciplining officials who illegally leased out government land.

On September 26th, the Deputy Inspector General of Government, Mariam Wangadya, directed Mubende District officials to take disciplinary action against the then Deputy Chief Administrative Officer, Emmanuel Ssempala, Julius Matovu, the former Kibalinga sub-county assistant Secretary and Venancious Mbonye the sub-county LC 3 Chairperson.

The officials were implicated in the giveaway of a 400ft by 300ft piece of land which is part of the 4.7hectares of Kibalinga Health Centre IV.

The land had been leased out to Twahirwa Jean De Dieu of Mubende Agro Supply and Processors Limited for 49 years under disguise of a Private Public Partnership.

Wangadya had recommended that the two civil servants be subjected to the district service commission for disciplinary action and the sub-county chairperson also be handled by the district council.

However, the Chief Administrative Officer found it difficult to implement the recommendation due to a number of challenges thus seeking for the Solicitor General's advice on how the matter can be best handled legally.

Jackson Kadumye, the Mubende District Information Officer, says that given the fact that the two civil servants implicated by the IGG are no longer workers of Mubende District, taking disciplinary action against them can't be easily implemented.

“The disciplinary action towards civil servants could include interdiction, warning and withholding of salaries among others. However, the two are now under the newly created district of Kassanda which means they are no longer under the supervision of Mubende Chief Administrative Officer,” says Kadumye.

Kadumye notes that the CAO has written to the solicitor general for advice on whether the punishment can be effected from where duo is currently serving from.

He further adds that the CAO also wanted to know whether the district might not be dragged to courts of law if the district council implemented disciplinary action on the LC III chairperson.
