Former gulu parish chiefs who claim to have been erroneously dismissed for service by Gulu District Local Government in 2002 are demanding for 4.277 billion in compensation.

The ex-chiefs went to court in 2002 demanding for 4.1 billion shillings unpaid pension,gratuities and damages and 290.212 million shillings in legal costs.

In a 2012 ruling,Justice Remmy Kasule awarded the former employees of gulu district a total of 2 billion shillings on the ground that the procedure was not followed when the civil servants were being laid off.

But since court made the ruling,gulu district has only paid the former parish chiefs 451,000,000 million shillings which was made to them in july last year.

The chairman Omach Okwera accuses gulu district of not honouring the court ruling as a result of many of his former coleagues have died without getting their pay.

According to Okwera ,22 of the 89 former parish chiefs have died since the 2012 court ruling.
