A PRESIDENTIAL adviser, Mohammed Sadiq Mayanja, has rapped resident district commissioners (RDCs) for failing to do their work and instead getting entangled in local politics.

Mayanja was on Friday commissioning a 77-year-old building in Gulu town which was rehabilitated by USAID through Northern Uganda Transition Initiative at sh230m.

It houses over 100 offices including that of the Gulu RDC, the regional internal security officers, the army spokesman, the DISO, the district service commission and the environment department.

Mayanja, who is the presidential adviser in charge of RDCs, assured donors in the north that the Government would ensure peace is sustained.

The adviser also disclosed that RDCs are the least facilitated. “They still use old Olympia typewriters instead of computers and beg for fuel from the chief administrative officers whom they are supposed to monitor.”

He appealed to donors to extend assistance to other RDCs in the north like they had done with Gulu. Gulu RDC’s office is the first to be rehabilitated by donors.

The USAID director, Dave Eckerson, said they rehabilitated the office to enable the RDC serve the people in the north better.

Eckerson said the LRA war destroyed the region’s infrastructure, making it hard for the district local governments to carry out basic governance.

“In an effort to reverse this and support the professionalisation of Government, the US is working together with local governments across the region to renovate district and sub-county buildings and other infrastructure,” he said.
