Judiciary driver must answer for his statement, says Bigirimana

Following an audio clip which went viral on social media platform recently recorded by Mr Kisambira a driver to Mbale high court judge over complaints about his salary disparities in the judiciary.

In the same clip Mr Kisambira said he was very annoyed and disgusted that he could ram into another vehicle on purpose to end the life of the judge and the bodyguard at once.

However Dr Pius Bigirimana the permanent secretary to the judiciary said that Mr Kisambira could have used the right means provided for under the public Service standing orders as a public servant rather than running to social media to address his grievances.

“ Kisambira will have to be held accountable for his actions because what he recorded in the clips wasn’t only false but baseless. I’m aware that he has been paid much more than he is alleging. He has received more than Shs 16 million for his services since August last year,” Bigirimana told our platform.

He added that working in public service isn’t a jungle that one can walk in and out of it.

He however summoned Mr Kisambira to his office as soon as he heard the recording and officially wrote to him a letter indicating that his utterances were tantamount to gross misconduct.

Bigirimana asked Mr Kisambira to explain his act of gross misconduct within five days.

Meanwhile on Monday the judiciary through its spokesperson Mr Jamson Karemani issued a statement explaining that drivers now receive a consolidated monthly allowance paid out quarterly in addition to their salary.

The combined total monthly payment for a driver exceeds Shs 1 million.
