KAMPALA. Newly appointed Resident District Commissioners (RDCs) and Deputies have up to end of this week to approve their recent appointments.
On Monday, the new RDCs and Deputies were seen lining up at the Office of the President at Parliament submitting their ‘Acceptance’ or ‘Rejection’ letters.
This comes after a notice to all the newly appointment RDCs and Deputies asking them to confirm in writing their appointments. The Acceptance letters are addressed to the Secretary, Office of the President.
Among the new RDCS who by press time were in the queue submitting their Acceptance letters include; Michael Bwalatum, RDC Katakwi, Vincent Enomu, Deputy RDC Katakwi, Jane Asiimwe, RDC Bunyangabo, Samuel Odongo, Deputy RDC Kabermaido and Herbert Anderson Burora, Deputy RDC Nakawa among others.
On October 03, President Yoweri Museveni appointed new RDCs and deputies. The list released by State House indicated that the President appointed 122 RDCs and 77 deputies.
In September 30 list, President Yoweri Museveni also appointed Deputy RDCs for the five Divisions of Kampala which include; Central, Makindye, Kawempe, Nakawa and Rubaga. The appointing authority also maintained the three officials appointed to the RDCs Secretariat in June this year.
The President halted new RDC appointments about four months ago after social media criticism that the list released Mid-June had some errors. After recalling the new RDCs list, the President directed those already serving to stay in their old areas of service, while the newly appointed ones were told to wait for new posting instructions.
