KAGADI: A section of recently recruited parish chiefs and ward agents in Kagadi district are plotting to demonstrate over delayed salary pay.
A confidential source that preferred anonymity told this publication that a section of the affected Parish chiefs and ward Agents that were recruited early this year especially to implement the parish development model program are silently plotting a strike.
Sources say they are accusing the district authority for not paying them since they were appointed into the positions.
”It’s now five months but we have never received any single coin despite reporting at their respective work stations for work on a daily basis,” the source said.
When approached in his office, the Kagadi district LC5 chairperson Ndibwami B Yosia acknowledged that it’s true the affected civil servants have never received their salaries.
Ndibwami called off the planned strike and assured the affected chiefs that they will receive their salaries in December this year.
He however attributed the problem to lack of an approved staff structure by the district council that could allow them access to the payroll system.
Ndibwami appeals to the affected Parish Chiefs and Ward Agents to be patient as they work upon their concern.
