KISORO. Two people with similar names are claiming to have been appointed deputy RDC for Kisoro District and have petitioned the President’s Office over the matter.
Mr. Moses Nuwagaba, the speaker of Eastern Division in Rukungiri Municipality on Monday, wrote to the Principal Private Secretary (PPS) to the President, Ms Molly Kamukama, seeking clarification on his appointment as Deputy RDC. This is because anoth Moses Nuwagaba, formerly deputy RDC of Kaberamaido District in Eastern Uganda, claims to have been transferred to Kisoro.
“I was called by Madam Lucy nakyobe (State House Comptroller) and later by the President himself informing me of my appointment and confirmation. On reaching the President’s office to pick my appointment letter, the personnel officer, Mr. Herbert Atuhaire, told me tha we are sharing name; Moses Nuwagaba one in service and myself” the October 22 letter by Mr. Nuwamanya (Speaker) reads in part.
On the otherhand, Mr. Nuwagaba alias Entwiga (former Kaberamaido Depurt RDC) said his appointment letter clearly indicates that he has been transferred to Kisoro District in the same position. “The controversy is being created by personnel officer in the President’s Office., Mr. Herbert Atuhaire. Iam reliably informed that my appointment letter claerlymindicates that I have been transferred from Kaberamaido to Kisoro District to serve as Deputy RDC, “Mr. Nuwagaba explained.
On Tuesday, Don Wanyama, Senior Press Secretary to President Museveni , promised to crosscheck with authorities before commenting on the matter “Iam currently out of station in the field but when I return, I will give you feedback. But what iam sure of is that the two people were not appointed for the same job,” Mr. Wanyama said
