Parliament has asked the executive to fire all Accounting officers who have violated the law by failing to submit the names of Public servants to the treasury.

This was after a heated debate where the Ministry of Finance and Public service were put to task to explain why Salaries of Public servants have not been paid for over three months now.
Tororo County MP and Shadow Minister for Finance Geoffrey Ekanya put the blame to the Ministry of Finance for failing to take action to Accounting Officers whom he said are incompetent and cannot do their work as required by the law.

However in response State minister for Finance in charge of Privatization Astone Kajara said the ministry has discovered a lot of irregularities on the names submitted by some accounting officers and promised to take action against those who failed to meet the deadline.

The Speaker directed the Minister of Finance to present a detailed statement on Thursday as to when the salaries of servants will be paid before the Schools open come next week.
