The Public Service State Minister, David Karubanga, on Tuesday presented a statement to parliament on the continued interdiction of some civil servants.

They include: Apollo Kazungu, Commissioner for Refugees in the office of the Prime Minister and Mr. Godfrey Sasagah Wanzira, Director Citizenship and Immigration Control.

Minister Karubanga says 388 public officers are on interdiction in the Public Service, of which 175 have exceeded the six months prescribed by Civil Service Standing Orders.

Members of Parliament said the Minister’s statement does not explain why Apollo Kazungu and Godfrey Sasagah are still on interdiction.

Speaker Rebecca Kadaga who presided over plenary asked the Minister to comply with the Civil Service Regulations on interdiction, and return the officers to work.
