A group of secretaries in Sembabule, who were recently recommended for interdiction, have threatened to sue the Inspector General of Government, Faith Mwondha, for advising the district authorities to take action against them.
An October 4th report from the IGG's office signed by the Deputy IGG, Raphael Baku, called for the interdiction of eight civil service secretaries who allegedly used forged academic transcripts to obtain employment through the district service commission. The group of secretaries reportedly presented the forged certificates to the commission during the 2005 Local Government restructuring exercise in order to retain their jobs.
The IGG's report added that the educational institutions in which the secretaries claim to have studied were not recognized by the Ministry of Education.
The secretaries, led by Florence Nakajubi who is employed by the District Production Department, insist that their academic transcripts are genuine. They say they were not aware that the institution at which they studied were not recognized by Government and insist that they should not be penalized for being deceived by the directors of the secretarial schools.
The secretaries say that if they are interdicted, they will sue the IGG for taking illegal action against them.
The group of secretaries includes Robinah Namayanja from the personnel office, Ruth Nambaziira from the District Service Commission and Jane Nanfuka who works at the district tender board. Others are Margaret Namutebi from the LC5 chairman's office, Jascent Batakabaara of the water department and Mabel Sanyu, who works at the Lwemiyaga sub-county office.
