You deserve a decent package! Speaker Kadaga vouches for former RDCs’ to get paid

KAMPALA– The Speaker of Parliament Rt Hon Rebecca Alitwala Kadaga has said that Parliament will look into the issue of streamlining the remuneration of former Resident District Commissioners (RDCs).

Rt Hon Kadaga made the remarks today, 13th July 13 2020 while in a meeting with the former Resident District Commissioners who were at her office to present a petition on why they are neglected when they leave office.

The former RDCs told the Speaker of Parliament that when they are appointed to the office, they become senior citizens and when they are retired they go home with nothing to show that they once worked for the government.

The former RDCs and their deputies appealed to the Speaker of Parliament to prevail over the legislators to enact a law in which they can be facilitated.

They also want Parliament to put in place a legal instrument that is retroactive and can streamline the office of the Resident District Commissioner so that they are given not less than 6 months notice before their services are terminated.

Speaker Kadaga, while reacting to the former RDCs concerns said that they had raised a pertinent good policy issue which should be addressed.

Rt Hon Rebecca Kadaga promised to forward the matter to the Parliamentary Committee on Presidential Affairs so that the issue is brought to the attention of Parliament to be discussed.

Resident District Commissioners are appointed by the President and are mandated by the Constitution to monitor and evaluate government programs. They also double as chairpersons of  their respective district security committees.
