BUSHENYI DISTRICT FORESTRY OFFICER FINALLY HANDS OVER OFFICE AMIDIST A STORM
BY WILBER MUHWEZI
Bushenyi district chief administrative officer Mr. Elias Byamungu was Friday this week forced Perezi kakumu the former district forestry officer to hand over office after a long time of struggles.
Perezi Kakamu clocked 60 years mandatory civil service retirement time in October 2016 but refused to leave office and started negotiating a contract while in office which is against the public service act and standing orders.
He was fortunately offered a contract by district executive committee but the permanent secretary ministry of local government refused his contract.
According to credible sources at the Bushenyi district local governement, Mr. Kakamu tried to maneuver and stay in office but the CAO Byamungu refused. This therefore forced the CAO to preside over his hand over on Friday Jan. 03, 2017 .
Kakamu is well known for bad relations with fellow staff and is not far from controversy. He was interdicted in 1990 but battled with the case and won it and hence he re-instated to office and compensated a lot of money.
Kakamu is a well known wealthy man and one wonders why he clocked 60 years and wanted to stay in office for more time.
