Two employees of Dokolo District local government have been interdicted for their alleged involvement in partisan politics. They are George Ongom, a Health Assistant attached to Kwera health center III in Kwera Sub County and Bosco Baluku, a teacher at Dokolo Primary School.

Sunday Christopher Kyomya, the Dokolo Chief Administrative Officer interdicted Ongom and Baluku for contesting in the NRM grassroots structure polls without resigning from their jobs. Civil service standing orders bar serving government officers from participating in partisan politics.

Both Ongom and Baluku competed for election as Dokolo District NRM publicity secretary. Baluku won the polls when he garnered 144 votes against Ongom's 112 votes. Isaac Imara, the Dokolo District NRM Registrar says both Ongom and Baluku didn't present their resignation letters before they contested in the party polls.

Ongom was recently seen mobilising youths to participate in active politics, a claim he denies. Dokolo RDC Susan Akany has warned civil servants against their involvement in active politics.
