The National Resistance Movement (NRM) finance director, Hassan Ggaliwango Waswa, has summoned all party secretariat staff for an emergency meeting to decide the fate of Secretary General, Justine Kasule Lumumba.
In a petition dated March 1, 2016 addressed to the president, the staff seek to meet Museveni on the conduct of the secretary general.
The staff cite 12 grievances they have against Lumumba including among others; the inaccessibility of the SG who rarely sits at the secretariat, demoralization of staff and complete lack of motivation, Lumumba lacking team work since she works alone hence causing inefficiency, redundancy and idleness.
In her defence, Lumumba said the 48 members of staff who signed the petition that could see her impeached, never reported to her their grievances.
She instructed the finance director [Hassan Ggaliwango Waswa] to meet them.
According to Lumumba, they should have reported to the Finance director first, then to her deputy Richard Todwong and then herself before petition the chairman.
“Whoever is complaining should provide evidence that she/he was contracted by us for a service. Those we contracted and have not yet paid, will be paid,” she said.
In a letter dated March 9, 2016, Galiwango called all staff for a meeting at the party headquarters in Kyadondo.
The meeting, according to the letter, would kick off at 9:00am today, Friday.
