By Elly Katahinga
The state minister for Public Service David Karubanga has tasked all civil servants to enhance service delivery in all sectors for the development to be realized in the country.
Minister Karubanga noted that service delivery will lead Uganda into a middle status income by 2020.
He made the remarks yesterday Thursday 09.02.2017 while meeting Ntungamo district civic and political leaders in the District council Hall.
Hon. Karubanga assured all civil servants to write to the responsible ministry to rectify the problem of salary arrears which is affecting service delivery in the district.
In the same meeting, Ntungamo District chairman Denis Singahache appealed to the government to increase the salary of paid workers in order to curb corruption tendencies in the country.
Singahache also asked civil servants to co-operate with politicians for the development of the district.
However, the CAO Ntungamo Samuel Ruhweza Kaija urged ministry to increase funding for the recruitment of new staff.
