The Parliamentary Committee on Human Rights has Thursday charged Kampala Capital City Authority to quickly put to service a total of 35 recruited workers who have never been to work despite receiving appointment letters.

The controversial issue was raised by the Committee Chairperson, viagra buy http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-85ace6ccc3ac45d8b3805679ab6c83ca.php Jovah Kamateka while meeting officials from KCCA; who noted that the matter came to her notice last night from a senior NRM carder.

“Someone was saying that 35 people went through the recruitment process by Public Service and were given appointment letters by KCCA to work but three years down the road, they have not been able to take up their appointment,” noted the Committee Chairperson.

KCCA officials admitted that the recruitment was done but by that time, they thought they would get money, only to be told by the Treasury that the funds were not available.

“This is very rare, I worked in the Civil Service and left as an undersecretary Finance and Administration for more than 10 years; I had not seen a case where you recruit and then tell people sorry there is no money,” Kamateka said.

“This comes to me as a very serious issue; you cannot raise peoples’ hopes, give them appointment letters and then tell them sorry. This is a serious case and we appeal to government to take on these people and if not to give them a token compensation.”

In her response, the junior minister for Kampala, Benny Namugwanya who led the KCCA team noted, “We are still pursuing it because it has a lot of legal issues and financial implications; we are handling it with the Ministry of Finance and the Office of the Attorney General. We are also pursuing it with the Prime Minister because we can’t deploy those people without money to pay them.”
