Hundreds of workers at the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) are set to lose their jobs, after a directive ordering all employees with a ‘pass degree’ to quit their posts in two months.
The directive comes in the wake of complaints by graduate candidates who successfully sat and passed Public Service Commission (PSC) interviews in 2012, but have never been taken on, leading to allegations of favouritism.
Those affected have since threatened to petition the IGG, while the Minister for Kampala Beti Kamya Turomwe has since promised to ‘look’ into the matter.
By press time it was not possible to get from KCCA spokesperson Peter Kaujju, as his known mobile number was ‘unavailable’.
In 2012 the KCCA advertised 1200 jobs and received an expectedly high number of graduate applicants, but many of those who passed the PSC interviews were never offered jobs.
