The minister for Economic Monitoring in the Office of the President, Peter Ogwang, has ordered the arrest of the Buliisa Chief Administrative Officer, Simon Bimbona and three others over a borehole project that was never realized.
The minister who is in Buliisa on a fact finding mission was shocked when he found that what was indicated in the district performance reports was not reflected on the ground.
For example, he found out that whereas in the district performance report, the CAO had indicated that six boreholes in various sub-counties had been constructed to a tune of shs173 million, on the actual ground, only one borehole could be seen whereas two other boreholes had malfunctioned after just one month.
Asked to show where the boreholes indicated in the report were, the district engineer, Maurice Wakame became elusive prompting the minister to take action.
Consequently, district CAO, Simon Bimbona, Chief Finance Officer Arthur Kibaretende, district internal auditor William Mpagi and engineer Maurice Wakame were apprehended and handed to Buliisa DPC John Mwaule for custody. End.
