ALL chief administrative officers (CAOs), their deputies and town clerks of municipalities are to be re-appointed, the chairperson of the parliamentary committee on public service and local government, George Wopuwa, has said.

Wopuwa said yesterday most CAOs had done interviews with the Public Service Commission.

He said the move followed a constitutional amendment last year to re-centralise the appointment of CAOs.

“They were re-centralised because CAOs have been behaving like untouchables. It was also done for proper control, discipline and deployment,” he said.

He denied reports published in a newspaper yesterday that MPs on the committee had asked the President to name CAOs for the over 20 new districts. The paper also quoted MPs as having said, “if government engineered the project of creating new districts to take services nearer to the people, it should put in place incentives allowing service delivery to take place.”

But Wopuwa said, “This story shows that you do not know how things are running”. He said CAOs, their deputies and town clerks of municipalities would be re-appointed by the Public Service Commission and posted afresh.

He said there was some vagueness on where the CAOs would belong.

“The posting will be done by the Ministry of local government and the Office of the president,” he said.
