UNATU concerned about District Chief Executive Officers diverting their money into other district activities.

By Damali Mukhaye.

The Uganda National Teacher’s Union has raised concerns of the District Chief Executive Officers, diverting the money meant for teachers’ salaries into other district activities.

According to the Secretary General of the union James Tweheyo, after a number of different teachers in different district complaining about the delays in getting their salaries, the union established that the problem was not the ministry of finance.

He notes that most CAOs are found of diverting the salary money to daily running of their districts arguing the ministry of education to step up since most teachers instead of teaching; they waste a lot of time moving from one office to another chasing their salaries.
