IGG To Reward Handsomely Whistle Blowers

The Inspectorate of Government has rallied the public to always volunteer enough information to facilitate successful prosecution of corrupt officers in public offices.

To this end, the public has been reminded of the hefty commissions payable to those who volunteer information that leads to the recovery of stolen public funds.

Beti Olive Namisango Kamya Turomwe, the Inspector General of Government, says they are prioritizing increased public awareness on corruption to ensure an informed citizenry willing to fight corruption, a vice that deprives Ugandans of essential services.

Addressing journalists during a press conference held at the Inspectorate Offices on Tuesday, the IGG cited common breaches in the District Service Commissions – DSC recruitments include; nepotism, bribery, political interference, recruitment of non-qualified staff and falsification of qualifications, among others.

Simon Ogwal Kajura, the Director of Anti-Corruption said the Inspectorate has introduced the rewards system under the Whistle Blowers Act, 2010 that allows a person who volunteers information on corruption to be rewarded 5 percent of the total recovered money in corruption.

On 26 January 2023, while officiating at the 37th National Resistance Movement Day celebrations in Kakumiro and Mubende District, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni decried the rampant corruption in District Service Commissions citing sell of public jobs for money, political patronage and sex among others.
