Sack drunk, lazy officers, says minister


Trade and Industry minister Amelia Kyambadde has directed the chief administrative officers to sack any lazy and drunkard district commercial officers.

Ms Kyambadde made the directive last week while meeting chief administrative and commercial officers of Karamoja sub-region in Moroto.

The minister said laziness and drunkenness of most of the commercial officials was greatly affecting the development of commercial projects in the district.

“I have given powers to all the chief administrative officers to reprimand or sack any lazy or drunkard commercial officer in the district and recruit another one who’s active on the ground,” Ms Kyambadde directed.

“Some commercial officers take two years without submitting reports while others totally don’t even submit the report to the ministry of trade. What kind of a commercial officer are you?” Ms Kyambade asked.
