A Junior minister has reportedly been captured on CCTV receiving a bribe at a guest house in Iganga town.
According to an online news outlet, The Inspector, the bribe is about Shs 180 million and was received by a the dark-skinned male minister from Eastern Uganda.
This alleged act is what forced President Museveni to transfer the minister into a dry ministry which is presided over by a born again and devoted christian.
The Minister got this bribe from some technocrats under the Local Government ministry’s jurisdiction.
Not so long ago, something happened on Iganga town. A male minister went to collect a bribe from some technocrats who were closely being monitored by state house’s Anti-Corruption Unit.
The Minister we’re told gathered himself to Iganga upon getting a call from one of the legislators from Kaliro in Busoga that the technical people he was pursuing were known to him and wanted to settle matters like ‘gentlemen’. The Minister we’re told asked for Shs 200 million out of Shs6bn that the alleged officials had siphoned from taxpayers.
As such, the minister was asked to turn up in Iganga and get his part. Unfortunately though, the money was short by Shs20m but still, the minister carried it.
Himself, the minister according to State House Inspectors got Shsi6om and gave the balance to the deal’s broker However, unknown to him, the room where they were, had been wired with secret spy cameras which kept capturing all the details of the sharing session.
When all this was done, the Anti-Corruption agents reportedly leaked the footage to Museveni who got shocked at the way his ministers we’re behaving.
He accused them of frustrating his desire to kick corruption out of government. Left with no option, Museveni wanted to fire outrightly the minister and also cage him but decided to throw him into another ministry for purposes of politics.
What this website has gathered independently is that the minister had become pompous and frustrated efforts by the security officials to arrest corrupt officials in the field.
“We became very happy when we heard that he had been taken into another ministry,” said a source.
