There is a growing
anxiety among Kyotera district local government staff following the
interdiction of Aaron Muyonga Kayinga, the District Service Commission Secretary over
Kayinga, who also doubles as the Principal Human Resource is
being investigated for abuse of office and corruption. The Chief
Administrative Officer, Fred Kalyesubula directed Kayinga last week to handover
office to his deputy; Teddy Nakyanzi to pave way for investigations.
Kalyesubula accordingly ordered for re-verification of the
academic papers of all staffs recruited in the past three years Kayinga has
been in office. The verification exercise was instigated by
reports that Kayinga fraudulently recruited unqualified staff into various positions
after pocketing bribes during interviews.
are reports that Kayinga has been doctoring minutes of the District Service Commission
in his capacity as Secretary through, which he would sneak in unqualified
candidates. Notably in May this year, the
district conducted interviews for various positions.
However, out of 20 slots advertised for Parish Chiefs, only
ten were shortlisted for interviews. The rest were recruited without passing
through the due procedure. Patrick Kintu Kisekulo, the Kyotera District LC V, says they
received information from whistle blower indicating that five of the parish
chiefs have forged academic papers.
He says the District Executive Committee resolved to conduct
a verification exercise of all staffs, prompting the CAO to take action towards
eliminating unqualified staff and possible ghosts. Kisekulo also says they obtained reports indicating that some
of the people on the list of newly appointed staff are out of the country on
One of the appointees is a secondary school student who was
allegedly sneaked into the system. The verification exercise has triggered panic among staff at
the district headquarters at Kasaali in Kyotera Town council. Some
of the staffs URN approached for comment including the District Forest and
Commercial Officers declined to speak on the matter.
Rose Nalubowa, the Chairperson Kyotera District Service
Commission has welcome the verification exercise, saying it help them to
restore the Commission’s repute as well as weed out incompetent staff who could
have jumped the system.
Efforts to speak to Kayinga, the interdicted Human Resource
Officer proved futile as his known mobile phone contacts were turned off. The same
officer was arrested last week after one of the applicants reported him to
police for soliciting bribe from him with promises of giving him a job in vain.
