The Public Service Commission has extended its investigations to parliament following claims that some former employees of the House were dropped maliciously during the civil service evaluation exercise.

The Public Service Commission has extended its investigations to parliament following claims that some former employees of the House were dropped maliciously during the civil service evaluation exercise.

The commission is also looking into reports that some employees in the House ended up being recruited to fill posts they never qualified for.

A source from parliament said last week that officials from the ministries of Local Government and Public Service and Labour, and Office of the Ombudsman, met over the matter.

Angelina Muganza, the Executive Secretary Public Service Commission, confirmed the development when contacted yesterday.

She said the commission was working with relevant bodies and the Office of Ombudsman to establish whether the employees were fired unfairly.

“We have given the Ombudsman our opinion over the matter. I know everything will be taken care of,” Muganza explained in a telephone interview.

She also revealed that the commission had already met some of the alleged affected employees.

Meanwhile, Muganza said the process of reinstating former employees in the districts was underway.

“In some districts, some employees have written to us, confirming that they had been reinstated.”

Local Government Minister, James Musoni, told this newspaper last month that leaders who used the evaluation exercise to maliciously victimize civil servants would be punished.
