Civil servants asked to desist from irresponsible spending.

By Anthony Kushaba:

Civil servants have been urged to desist from irresponsible spending that often sees them spending more than they earn.

The call was made today by Ntungamo chief administrative officer Nasser Mukiibi while speaking at the induction of newly appointed teachers held at Ntungamo district council hall.

Mukiibi revealed that some civil servants engage in multiple borrowing, which stresses them out and causes them to become disoriented and unable to concentrate on their jobs as they hide from their creditors.

He urged them not to be overly ambitious and instead set their goals and work towards achieving them as time goes by.

Speaking at the same function, Ntungamo inspector of schools in-charge of special needs education, Smart Atukundiire, urged the teachers to handle children with care and desist from corporal punishment and engaging in relationships with students.
