Herbert Anderson Burora, the embattled Rubaga Division Deputy Resident City Commissioner, has handed over his office, emphasizing that he chose conscience over merely remaining in his job. He officially handed over the office to Maureen Keita, the Kampala Central Division Deputy RCC on Monday, as directed by the Permanent Secretary to the Office of the President, Hajji Yunus Kakande.   

“Today, I handed over The Office of the Deputy Resident City Commissioner in the LUBAGA Division. 5years and 5month of my Service are worth bowing out Honorably. It’s not about the office/Job as Madam Anita thought, It’s about the Service. I had all the options to choose the Job or to remain true to my conscience. I chose the latter,” said Burora on X formerly known as Twitter.  

He further stated, “In my tour of duty, there are those that I didn’t satisfy for one reason or the other, but majorly, I served the way I was supposed to do. I may not be able to measure my legacy, as a representative of the President, but I’m sure there is no single day that I didn’t represent him to the best of my knowledge.”

Burora announced that on Thursday, March 21, 2024, he will hold a press conference to expound more broadly on his decision. Burora was suspended on March 14th, 2024, for an alleged violation of official advice moments after attending a meeting where he was criticized.

“In that meeting, you were faulted to have violated official advice to the extent that you continued to issue or utter statements to the social media without express authority from your line supervisors. Therefore, you failed to satisfy the meeting or give justifiable reasons for your continued actions. ” He said his suspension was for 28 days with effect from March 15th, 2024.

Trouble for Burora started after he publicly criticized Anita Among, the speaker of parliament for alleged corruption. It all started when a group of activists exposed what is believed to be a cash bonanza in parliament involving huge sums of money.
