Kampala: Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja has trashed the report from the Permanent Secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister presented to her on the substandard items that were delivered to the affected persons in Kasese saying it lacks facts.
Early this week when Nabbanja visited people affected by floods in Kasese, showing disappointment to learn that they had been given substandard items such as blankets.
Nabbanja told reporters on Tuesday that Kasese is not a dumping ground and she had rejected the items because they were sub-standard.
Addressing the Bunyoro Parliamentary caucus, Nabbanja said she had directed the Inspector of Government, Police and the State House Anti-Corruption Unit to carry out fresh investigations into the matter.
She gave them three days to come up with a report and further blacklisted the supplier, and tasked them to deliver quality goods.
The rejected items included 40,000kgs of maize flour, 20,000kgs of beans, 2,000kgs of sugar, 2,000 tarpaulin, 1,350 jerricans, 1,000 basins,100 cartons of laundry soap, 1,000 mosquito nets, 100 blankets, and 100 mats.
Nabbanja further revealed that some ill-intentioned people have started threatening her family with the latest incident happening to one of her brothers in Kakumiro.
“Someone travelled all the way to our country home in Kakumiro and told my brother to deliver the warning message to me,” Nabbanja said adding that she will not take this lightly and has already planned to meet the president about the same.
She said, “I will inform the Head of State, because if someone can drive from Kampala to Kakumiro to look for my brother, then I can not take that lightly.”
However, some of the legislators from Bunyoro asked her to stay firm amidst the threats and intimidation as the days for the mafia and corrupt people are numbered.
