Kazo: CAO threatens to suspend salaries of parish chiefs over PDM
The Kazo district Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), Zirimenya Nsubuga has warned and promised to suspend the parish chiefs’ salaries over mismanaging Parish Development Model (PDM) program at their respective parishes.
Nsubuga made the remarks during the meeting to assess the progress of PDM held at the district headquarters attended by the district PDM core team, LC III chairpersons, sub-county chiefs, and Parish chiefs.
Nsubuga stressed that they will not continue paying parish chiefs who are not doing their work noting that they no longer want more excuses on this matter.
“Why should I continue paying you if you can’t do one simple thing of organizing people of just one PDM Sacco to benefit from the program designed for them by the government?” asked Nsubuga.
Rev Samuel Mugisha Katugunda, the district LC V chairperson also noted that parish chiefs and CDOs are not doing their work at the right time and ordered them to do what is necessary to see that beneficiaries of this program get their money by 30th July.
Dan Nahurira Bwamunyonga, the district speaker and Kazo sub-county councilor revealed that all works concerning PDM are done at the parish level saying that parish chiefs are going to be suspended if they continue not doing their work.
