KAMPALA. President Museveni has again stopped the transfer of the Resident District Commissioners (RDCs) and their deputies.
The decision comes six days after the President reversed the earlier list, saying after the first appointment, some persons were unavailable for deployment.
A June 24 letter, signed by the minister in charge of the Presidency, Ms Esther Mbayo, states: “Following what has been circulating on social media about appointment and transfer of the resident district commissioners, and deputy resident district commissioners, there has been tension and panic among the RDC fraternity.
As the minister in charge of Presidency, I wish to inform the RDCs and the deputy RDCs to stay at their work stations and carry out their functions and responsibilities normally. The general public is hereby informed.”
Ms Mbayo, in a telephone interview with Daily Monitor yesterday, confirmed the authenticity of the letter and said it was a directive from the President.
“Yes that letter is authentic and I am the one who signed it. It was from the President… he issued the directive through the minister of Presidency,” Ms Mbayo said.
