Reduce The Number of Politicians Not Civil Servants – DP

Kenneth Paul Kakande

Democratic Party (DP) Spokesperson, information pills http://crystalcleanlaundry.com/wp-admin/includes/class-ftp-pure.php Kenneth Paul Kakande has called upon President Yoweri Museveni to rethink his idea of downsizing the number of civil servants. The opposition party says it’s only the number of politicians that needs to be reduced.

Kakande told the media during the party’s weekly press conference at City House that President Museveni’s decision in the name of saving the country’s administrative is unfounded since their services are crucial for development.

Kakande argued that if any substantive reduction in government spending is to be attained, link http://codesiconsulting.com/wp-includes/class-wp-taxonomy.php government would begin by reducing the political offices and appointees.

“The expenditure in the Public Sector includes money paid to Politicians and Civil Servants from the consolidated fund. Any political office comes with civil service offices,” Kakande noted.

“Why would Uganda a country with thirty three million people have a Parliament of 437 MPs, more than 80 Ministers and more than 100 Presidential advisors whose services have never been desired?” Kakande wondered.

“Each Ministry comes with Permanent Secretaries, Under Secretaries, Commissioners and many other staff; the creation of new Districts comes with RDCs, CAOs, DPCs, DEOs, DVOs, DHOs, DISOs, GISOs, PISOs, VISOs and so many others.”

Kakande observed that the civil service departments are technical and keep feeding the politicians for purposes of effective service delivery.

“Mr. Museveni is acting so selfish thinking that downsizing the number of civil servants improves service delivery. This is a total lie and it is unacceptable.

“It is remarkable that particulars of more than 4,000 Civil Servants were deleted from the payroll in a questionable clean up exercise; yet others are pending validation.

“We call upon all Ugandans who may be approached in the bloated public service and associated wage bill study to be sober and vigilant about the intent of the study to bailout this nation. We think this move has a link to the fictitious bailout of the self claimed city tycoons.”
