Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

KAMPALA: Former Residential District Commissioners (RDCs) and Residential City Commissioners (RCCs) and their deputies who were sent home on the 24th March 2022 have petitioned president Museveni over unfulfilled pledges he made when he met them.

When the new list of RDCs and Deputy RDCs was released by state house and ministry of presidency, over 60 of these were fired and replaced with new faces though their sacking was not justified. It was also reported that those appointed and retained parted with some amount of money amounting to Shs5million but those accused came out to deny the accusations.

When they were fired, former RDCs organized themselves into a group and requested to meet the president. There request was granted and they met the president on 08th July 2022 who thanked them for serving their country very well and also urged them to support the current and newly appointed RDCs to ease service delivery.

“I met some of the former Resident District Commissioners (RDCs) at State House at Entebbe. I thanked them for their service and tasked them to support the current RDCs in delivering service to our people and the nation”-tweeted president Museveni


The group came out with happy faces after the president promised that they will not go home empty handed but some money will be sent to their accounts to manage their affairs and move on with life.

Well, some were redeployed while some got cash amounting to Shs360m and others were gifted with land and others but only a few got these despite the presidential directive that all former RDCs should be given this package of cash.

Out of the 64 former RDCs, only a few managed to receive the money on their bank accounts leaving the rest guessing what happens next. They have tried to engage all the stake holders but are yet to receive a coin.

They have engaged the Human resource manager in the office of the RDC secretariat, the Permanent Secretary for Ministry of presidency Hajji Yunus Kakande, the state house comptroller Jane Barekye and several officials but nothing yet on their account.

According to these former RDCs, when they engaged Ms Barekye, she revealed to them that she only waits for a directive from the president and she releases the funds to their accounts and they move on with their life.

Meeting at the National theatre in Kampala today, they’ve signed a petition reminding the president that his directive is yet to be fulfilled as he promised because they served and are always available to serve their country diligently.
