The State House Anti-Corruption Unit in liaison with Uganda police have arrested Arthur Mpuga, the Labour Officer of Kikuube District, who doubles as the Chairperson of Bunyoro Tulihamu Cooperative Society, for mismanagement of the cooperative assets.

It is alleged that Mpuga, in connivance with Everce Munguryek, the District Secretary for works and Samuel Muganzi, the District Principal Assistant Secretary, both members of Bunyoro Tulihamu Cooperative Society abused their powers by hiring out a government tractor assigned to the society for their personal gains.

After learning of the above State House Anti-Corruption Unit intervened and netted him. It is worth noting that the Unit has registered a huge success against corruption and has been able to recover over UGX30 billion tax payers’ money through prosecutions, and other measures used to compel corrupt officials to refund embezzled public funds.

The Unit has so far investigated different public servants for graft, including members of parliament, accounting officers, security personnel, directors of several government agencies and commissions among other gov’t big fish.

In addition to the above, the Unit has also ensured the safe return of over 600 Ugandans stranded after being trafficked to Arab countries. It has also conclusively investigated over 10,000 cases and interdicted over 200 government workers from public offices.

SH-ACU was established under Article 99(4) of the constitution of Uganda, which gives the President executive powers to either directly or indirectly perform his duties or through officers subordinate to him.

Launched on 10th December 2018, SH-ACU coordinates with all constitutionally mandated agencies to ensure that complaints raised by citizens are resolved.

The Unit also acts as a link between H.E. the President, citizens and Anti- Corruption agencies in relation to the Anti-Corruption issues.
