Public Service Disappoints Government On Recruitment

Parliamentary public account committee has tasked ministry of public service permanent secretary Catherine Batarakwate Musingwire to explain why the ministry never utilized funds amounting to 2.3 billion shillings that were meant to recruit workers in different local government but instead the money was later transferred to the consolidated fund.

Musingwire appeared before the committee chaired by Budaadiri east MP Nathan Nandala Mafaabi. The MPs expressed anger because most of the districts don’t have worker wondering what were her intentions of leaving the vacancies empty yet many Ugandans do not have jobs.

The committee was also shocked after the ministry violated the public finance management act where she spent Shs1.4 billion to cater for the settlement of arrears yet their budget Shs297 billion.

The MPs who including Bukoto east MPs Florence Namayanja, Nansana municipality MPs Robert Sebunya and Kalungu west MPs Joseph Sewungu questioned why she never consulted the ministry of finance.
