In a bid to realise a lean government, price http://cu1cali.com/curaduria/wp-content/plugins/featured-articles-lite/settings.php Dr Kizza Besigye has vowed to sack Resident District Commissioners (RDCs) and Presidential aides once he takes power after the 2016 general elections, Chimp Corps report.

Besigye said the funds spent on maintaining the operations of RDCs and advisors will be channelled to the healthcare and education sectors among others.

“We will reduce the cost of administration and do away with unnecessary expenditure,” said Besigye while addressing the people of Katovu, Lyantonde on Friday morning.

“We will not have RDCs and Presidential advisors. We shall only have 20 cabinet ministers and 20 state ministers,” he added.

The FDC presidential flag-bearer said “These ministers will be the presidential advisors.”

The size of Cabinet, Parliament and political appointees has enlarged over time, imposing a heavy burden on public expenditure.

According to research by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Uganda’s government is unusually permissive in the process required to authorise the creation of new political structures.

Government has since been urged to curtail any further growth and if possible to reduce the scale of expenditure on the political system.

Besigye cited sections of the FDC Manifesto which provide that upon taking power, the political party will pay Shs 650,000 starting salary for primary school teachers, policemen and soldiers.

The party also intends to give Shs 1,000,000 as a starting salary for secondary school teachers and Shs 3.5 million is starting salary for doctors.

Besigye also decried the poor state of roads in rural areas, saying more needs to be done to fix the road infrastructure system.
