The Inspector General of Government (IGG) Irene Mulyagonja has established that two drivers employed by Masaka district used the same O’level certificate when being recruited.
In the letter addressed to Masaka district chief administrative officer (CAO), Mulyagonja ordered for the appointment of Lawrence Lubega, who is a driver attached to the district health department, to be revoked.
“I submit that the district service commission revokes the appointment of Lawrence Lubega from the health department since it was effected when he did not have the requisite qualifications,” he said.
Mulyagonja, in the letter, said her office had received a complaint that Lubega used the O’level certificate of a namesake, Lawrence Lubega, a driver in the district agriculture department, to get the job.
Lubega, however, refused to acknowledge the S4 certificate, which was found by the IGG on his appointment file.
However, the IGG has noted that it will not be possible for the office to prosecute Lubega because his namesake, Lawrence Lubega from the district Agriculture department, lost interest in the case.
“This office has not been enabled to pursue this matter to a logical conclusion. It transpired that the two district drivers were close friends,” Mulyagonja said.
Inspite of the development, Mulyagonja said Lubega will not continue working in Masaka district government.
