Abuse of public funds and offices in Uganda

 

 

The Resident District Commissioners (RDCs) are the only civil servants in Uganda who do not pass through the public service commission for interviews and scruitiny.

One to become a RDC requires an A level qualification or an equivalent. But many of the RDCs don’t have this academic requirement.

The RDCs earn more than most graduates in Uganda. The service of RDCs and their salary scale is determined by the president or the office of the president and are immune to the civil service code of conduct as they are allowed to practice partisan politics (NRM). In precise RDCs are paid from public coffers.

The money RDCs and their deputies earn per month is enough to pay salaries for 6,000 doctors and 10,000 policemen.
