The public service Ministry has rejected the appointment of the former Hoima Chief Administrative Officer and his assistant to the district service commission.
In May Patrick Mwesigwa-Isingoma, has been appointed chairperson of the Hoima District Service Commission despite angry protests by members of the district council.
Isingoma was approved by the district council in a charged session. Nine of the 27 district councilors refused to approve Isingoma's nomination and stormed out of the council meeting.
In a dramatic twist of events, the Hoima district council speaker, Yunus Mugabe, says the public service ministry has rejected the appointment of Mwesigwa and his former assistant Mugenyi under unclear circumstances. He says the ministry has not given the reasons as to why the two have been rejected.
Mugabe however accuses the Buhaguzi county MP Tom Kyahurwenda, and the public service minister, Henry Muganwa Kajura of blocking the duo's appointments.
Mugabe says Muganwa influenced the sacking the two Chief Administrative offices. But Kajura denies any involvement in sabotaging the duo's appointment.
Kyahurwenda on the hand admits that he used his influence as a vice chairman of NRM in Hoima to inform the public service that the two were sacked in public interest and are not supposed to serve in any public office for at least five years.
Kyahurwenda argues that the fact that Isingoma was sacked in public interest, raised serious questions about his integrity and his ability to chair the District Service Commission.
He also raised queries about the credentials of Kyamanywa Mugenyi, the former deputy Chief Administrative Officer, who like Isingoma was sacked from office.
