Our efforts to meet the district Chief Administrative officer Phiona Sanyu in her office for a comment were fruitless. However, when we contacted her via phone confirmed the circulation of the letter on social media but didn’t disclose the details.

‘’I have seen a copy of the letter from the Inspectorate of Government circulating on social media,’’ she said before hanging up the phone.
