Muhakanizi warned that failure to abide by the above guidelines, the responsible CEO will be held personally and pecuniary responsible for flouting the law.
KAMPALA - The permanent secretary in the ministry of finance, Keith Muhakanizi, has warned all chief executive officers (CEOs) of state-owned enterprises and public corporations against illegal staffing.
“It has come to my notice that a number of your staff are being appointed without required qualifications and recruitment are not following the laid down procedures, which is totally unacceptable,” Muhakanizi said in his August 9 letter.
He noted that this issue has continuously been raised in various audit reports by the Auditor General John Muwanga and is still being discussed in Parliament.
“The purpose of this letter, therefore, is to bring the above matter to your attention and further request you to desist from appointing your staff without following the right procedures within the existing laws and regulations of your institution as well as ensuring that there is adequate budget before recruitment,” he wrote.
Muhakanizi warned that failure to abide by the above guidelines, the responsible CEO will be held personally and pecuniarily responsible for flouting the law.
“By copy of this letter, the chairpersons of the service commissions and all accounting officers are accordingly informed,” he said.
