Kateta sub county council demands for an audit report,over mismanagement of woodlot.
SERERE: The sub county council of Kateta in Serere district has tasked the district auditor to produce an audit report pertaining the mismanagement of Woodlot by then the sub county chief Mr.Charles Otekat.
The councilors accused the former sub county chief of spending Shs25million in purported patches of woodlot for the sub county which is non existence. Mr.John Moses Eseru one of the councilors said the council was disturbed by the silence of the auditor in producing the report depicting them visiting the sub-county.
“The internal auditor Mr Baan, then RDC Serere Ms Nakamya and DISO Serere all visited the sub county and found nothing on the ground, they promised to come up with the report but to our surprise the report has failed to come out one year now,”he said.
A source at the sub county offices told this publication that a lot of money has been mis used by sub county chiefs who are posted in Kateta.
“Every sub county chief who comes to Kateta has gone while driving a car due to corruption, “he said.
A source wandered the level of intelligence in the Kateta sub county chairpersons adding that most chairpersons used to sign blank cheques and go away leaving the sub county chief to fill his own amount of money he wishes to withdrew from the account.
Peter Omoding another concerned resident of Omagara village in Kateta sub county said last year IGG Kampala officials visited the sub county and took the necessary documents but no action has been taken against the culprits.
