Resident District Commissioners (RDCs) have been told to ensure prudent management of government stores and logistics including cars.
In a communication, the Director of RDCs in the Office of the President Muhammad Mayanja, said all the president’s representatives in the districts should not expect new replacements for vehicles, should the ones they currently have, break down.
Over the years the RDCs have taken a bashing in respect to their roles, with sections of the public saying the post should be scrapped because it impacts on the administrative costs of government. Currently, there are over 128 RDCs, all of who have Deputy and Assistant RDCS.
Meanwhile, Mr Mayanja’s communication to the RDCs comes in the wake of financial constraints facing both private and public sectors in the country.
