The move comes high on the heels of reports that majority of new RDCs do not fully appreciate the demands of their work.

Uganda’s Presidency minister Frank Tumwebaze recently attributed the poor performance of government programmes on the powerlessness of Resident District Commissioners due to the absence of the law to define their specific field of operation.

Tumwebaze told the Parliament’s Committee of Presidential Affairs while giving a sector performance review report for the national patriotism clubs.

He said for government programmes to succeed there is need to have a law on RDCs to define their roles to enable them execute their duties successfully.

The minister further revealed government is considering taking RDCs to Kyankwanzi to equip them with military knowledge and learn to categorize their tasks as it is not stipulated in the constitution.

Opondo said the RDCs’ personal drivers and escorts will not be not allowed access at Kyankwanzi. This could be aimed at cutting costs of the retreat.

The RDCs are expected to converge at Kololo independence grounds to use common transport to Kyankwanzi.
