The Office of the President has given the newly appointed Resident District Commissioners (RDCS) and Deputies a one week’s ultimatum to confirm their recent appointments.
On October 03, President Yoweri Museveni appointed new RDCs and deputies. This comes after he (Museveni) halted new RDC appointments four months ago after social media criticism that the list released Mid-June had some errors including appointment of an individual who had passed on. After recalling the new RDCs list, the President directed those already serving to stay in their old areas of service, while the newly appointed ones were told to wait for new posting instructions.
On Monday, the new RDCs and Deputies were seen queuing up at the Office of the President at Parliament submitting their ‘Acceptance’ or ‘Rejection’ letters.
Apparently, the Secretary, Office of the President last week wrote to all the new appointees requesting them to confirm their appointment and immediately report to the respective districts for duty.
Among the new RDCS who by press time were on the queue submitting their Acceptance letters include; Michael Bwalatum, RDC Katakwi, Vincent Enomu, Deputy RDC Katakwi, Jane Asiimwe, RDC Bunyangabo, Samuel Odongo, Deputy RDC Kabermaido and Herbert Anderson Burora, Deputy RDC Nakawa among others.
On October 03, President Yoweri Museveni appointed new RDCs and deputies. The list released by State House indicated that the President appointed 122 RDCs and 77 deputies.
