Two officials from Kyenjonjo district; Adiga Aloyscious and Kalyebi Denis have been convicted and sentenced to 8 and 12 years imprisonment respectively on charges of forgery and uttering false documents.
They have also been ordered to pay UGX15M each as compensation to Government.
This was after the duo was found guilty by the Chief Magistrates Court, Kyenjonjo of forging appointment letters, posting instructions, and introductory letters purportedly signed by the Principal Human Resource Officer, Ministry of Education and Sports, and the Education Service Commission, to secure jobs as instructors at Nyamango Technical Institute in Kyenjojo district.
The officials were earlier arrested by police working together with the State House Anti-Corruption Unit (SH-ACU).
State House Anti Corruption Unit has registered a huge success against corruption and has been able to recover over UGX30 billion in taxpayers’ 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, and 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 Anti-Corruption issues.
