Gender, labour and social Development minister; Janat Mukwaya has recommended for the sacking of Isingiro district chief Administrative officer Eswilu Donatch together with his chief Finance officer Innocent Byakagere for allegedly sabotaging Government programs in the area.
Janat Mukwaya accused the two most top civil servants in the district for refusal to transfer over 234 million shillings released by Government, to various active women group bank Accounts.
On 29th May 2017, the ministry of Gender, Labour and social Development under Uganda Women Entrepreneurship program (UWEP) released the money to district women project Account but since then no single group has received any amount of money.
Although the Assistant CAO; Alosius Gumisiriza said that the delay in transferring money was caused by group’s failure to acquire Tax Identification Numbers from URA the minister together with other ministry officials insist that such a condition should not be imposed on women groups since they are given money once.
Janat Mukwaya who is currently monitoring and evaluating youth livelihood projects and those of Uganda women entrepreneurship program in south western districts, said she will not fold hands and watch as civil servants derail such a good Government program that is intended to help women start up projects for purposes of increase their income and eradicate poverty at household level.
