She reportedly decided to work at her merchandise shop near Mwaami cinema hall in Masaka town forcing the school head teacher to petition the Inspectorate of Government to investigate her for absconding from work and misconduct.
Milly Nakibuule, the deputy head teacher of Bisanje Muslim primary school in Masaka has been sacked for allegedly absconding from duty. Nakibuule was sacked on the orders of the Inspectorate General of Government. It is alleged that Nakibuule asked for maternity leave from school on May 25, 2011 and was expected to return back on August 18th in vain.
She reportedly decided to work at her merchandise shop near Mwaami cinema hall in Masaka town forcing the school head teacher to petition the Inspectorate of Government to investigate her for absconding from work and misconduct. Detectives from the Inspectorate of Government found her red-handed operating her shop on July 12 instead of reporting for work at school. As a result, Muzamil Abon, the chief Investigator from the IGG ordered Ruhemba Kweyamba, the Masaka Chief Administrative Officer to delete Nakibuule from the payroll.
In his July 12th letter Abon contends that Nakibuule does not deserve any payment because she left the school a year ago, adding that she was earning money for no work done. He instructed the CAO to submit Nakibuule to District Service Commission and delete her from the pay roll to pave way for the recruitment of a new teacher in her place. Abon also ordered Ruhemba to recover 4 million shillings from the Nakibuule that she had received as salary since September 2011.
On Friday last week, URN found Milly Nakibuule selling merchandise in her shop. She admitted leaving the school but vowed not to refund the money. Nakibuule defended herself saying despite the fact that she didn’t resign officially, she left the school because of the miserable working conditions in the education sector. She said that by the time she walked out, she was earning shillings 270,000 that could not meet her basic needs. Nakibuule explains that she could not afford to pay school fees for her four children let alone buy them food and pay rent.
Betty Namagembe, the Masaka District Inspector of Schools has not yet commented on the sacking of Nakibuule saying that she has not yet received a copy of her dismissal letter. But Ruhemba Kweyamba, the Masaka CAO says they have recruited Janat Nakafeero to act as the school head teacher until the district service commission recruits another head teacher.
