The district council of Amuria chaired by Speaker Ketty Akol on Friday unanimously agreed to suspend their newly posted Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Andrew Leru who they accuse of abuse of office.
Leru was posted to Amuria mid last year from Pader district where he was also accused of mismanaging Shillings 115 million meant for the construction of Atanga market and a community store in Ongany in Pader Sub County.
He was then arrested by police in Pader and detained in Pader CPS before his release. After release, here http://citybreakguide.ro/wp-includes/category.php Leru was posted to Amuria District.
The motion to suspend the CAO was moved by the Amuria district Chairperson Robert Okitoi Erisat and seconded by the vice chairperson David Ewayu.
Okitoi accused Leru of failure to deliver services to the lower administrative units (Sub Counties), sickness http://charadas.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-module.php which he claims is posing a big threat to the District top security body chaired by the RDC Joseph Opio Osotto.
Mr. Leru is also accused of creating factions among the district council which according to Okitoi has led to poor delivery of services.
“The CAO is siding with the NRM councillors, for sale which is an abuse of his office. He only focuses on attending workshops from the time he was transferred here. He hasn’t called of a meeting between the District Executive and him”, Okitoi said.
According to Okitoi, Mr Leru is constantly absent from office which has crippled service delivery for the past two months.
“That man has not even reported to the lower administrative units”, he added.
“We have been informed that Mr Leru only surfaces when he wants money. After getting it, he disappears to Kampala to enjoy taxpayers’ money claiming that he is on official duty,” Okitoi added.
Mr. David Ewayu the Amuria vice chairperson, while seconding the motion said the Mr Leru always leaves office without delegating his deputies. He said his behaviours were unbecoming as he (Leru) had turned a visitor in the district.
Efforts for Mr. Leru’s comment went futile as our reporter’s repeated calls went unanswered.
