Irregularities Mar Kole Cattle Restocking

28 February 2019

UGANDA - Local leaders in Okwerodot Sub-county, Kole District, have been faulted for frustrating the implementation of the government restocking programme.

During a public accountability forum organised by the Apac Anti-Corruption Coalition, an NGO recently, some beneficiaries alleged that they paid Shs50,000 to some of the programme’s committee members to get the animals.

Committee members are Gombolola Internal Security Officers (Giso), councillors, parish development committees and Local Council I chairpersons.

Ronald Okello Okino, a resident, said some councillors received more than three cows under the restocking programme and Operation Wealth Creation (OWC).

Kevin Obong, the Okwerodot Sub-county councillor, confirmed she was given a cow after paying Shs50,000 to the selection committee.

The chairperson of the ruling NRM party in Alito and Okwerodot sub-counties, Richard Otim, said he also gave Shs50,000 to the sub-county chairperson, Mr Jimmy Obal, to deliver a cow to the Giso.
