Kampala, (UG):- The Minister For Presidency Hon Milly Babalanda has directed the immediate removal of Buikwe Resident District Commissioner, Hajjat Hawa Namugenyi Ndege from her office as RDC over abuse of office and an altercation in public with a fellow government official.

Hajjat Ndege’s removal follows a hot verbal exchange of words with the State Minister in the Vice President’s Office Hon. Dian Mutasingwa over land matters.

Hon Babalanda in her letter dated July 01 2024 addressed to the Secretary in the Office of the President explained the scuffle between the RDC and the Minister caused much “public debate where the Office of the President was deeply discredited.”

“Following a hot change that transpired between the RDC, Buikwe and the State Minister in the Vice President’s Office; and which caused much public debate where the Office of the President was deeply discredited; I wish to guide that the RDC Buikwe Ms Hawa Namugenyi Ndege should be recalled to the Headquarters pending redeployment,” Minister Babalanda said in the letter also copied to the President and the Prime Minister.

Babalanda also directed that a detailed report be produced on the issue as per her earlier guidance and in the interim, “the Deputy RDC of Buikwe should take charge of the RDC Office.”

The Minister further said that the “President will be consulted for a final decision on the matter following the completion of the detailed report.”

Sources from Buikwe district who witnessed the altercation say Minister Mutasingwa found the RDC Ndege presiding over the illegal eviction of residents at Naava Cell in Njeru Municipality.

It is also alleged that RDC Ndege mobilized a team of security personnel comprising Army and Police officers and escorted a group of self-claimed bailiffs who are said to be unregistered to demolish the house of one Simon Herbert Aliddeki.

Aliddeki and his sister Stella Nambi petitioned the High Court in Fort Portal challenging the unfair distribution of properties of their late father Simon Peter Kasikisa by tHeir siblings from another mother.
