Mr Yasin Dauda Kasibante asks district heads of departments to commit themselves to improve service delivery before the people.
Celebrations to mark the 27th NRM anniversary in Apac District witnessed drama when the resident district commissioner arraigned heads of department before the public to commit themselves and pledge to improve service delivery.
Mr Yasin Dauda Kasibante on Wednesday said effective service delivery has been eluding most parts of the district and said swift action must be taken.
“I want all the heads of department, including the two town clerks, to come in front to commit themselves on what they will do for the communities for the year 2013,” Mr Kasibante said.
“I also want to task you in front of your people to avoid discrimination and you will say that by yourself.”
The officials, most of whom seemed uneasy, gradually made the pledges.
Mr Wilson Mega, the district fisheries officer, said: “I promise to fight the catching of immature fish and use of illegal fish gear so that our people start eating mature fish.”
Similar commitments also came from the district Naads coordinator, Mr Johnson Ojok, the district health officer, Dr Mathew Emer, the district planner , Mr Enon Pele, the district education officer, Mr Billy Okunyu and the district Inspector of Schools, Ms Margaret Oling.
Mr Kasibante cautioned the officials and other politicians who would try to interfere with government projects.
