Among the jobs advertised are; three Head Teachers, two Deputy Head Teachers, four Senior education assistants, 19 Education Assistants, one Senior Assistant Town Clerk, one Enrolled Midwife, one Information Technology Officer (ITC), one Principal Commercial Officer and one Assistant Records Officer.

“If they have been doing things unprofessionally with their own intentions, I am not a party to that” Lubuuka noted. 

The Cao stressed that, since there is a countrywide validation exercise, the alleged advert is lawfully suspended until further notice.
” As a district, we are following the law, public should be calm following irregular advert. If we act outside the law, Kapelebyong will be like a briefcase district outside Uganda” Opio Emmanuel the communications officer told the journalists.

Recruitment doesn’t occure in isolation but its the definition of processes which different offices play and its only CAO’s office that knows the WAGE available for Recruitment.
