President Yoweri Museveni has directed for an expeditious inquiry into allegations of theft of iron sheets and other relief items, that were meant for Karamoja region, following increased complaints from the intended beneficiaries and other concerned citizens.
In line with the above, Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga says that the Director of Public Prosecution using her Constitutional powers has directed CID working jointly with SH/ACU to expeditiously conduct a criminal investigation into the matter.
The task will be handled by a joint team comprised of officers from DPP, CID and State House Anti Corruption Unit.
The joint team shall expand on the preliminary inquiries so far conducted and further liaise with IGG and Parliament on the same matter.
The team shall interact with all the concerned personalities to ensure an expeditious investigation.
According to Enanga, “The directive further demonstrates the commitment of Government to fight corruption in our country.”
