The fallout from what was deemed a calculated attempt to ensure transparent accounting procedures in Lira district, has begun and heads are beginning to roll.
The district council is already contemplating over whether or not it should involve the IGG in investigating the disappearance of 3.6 billion shillings from the district coffers.
The money was part of the expenditure budget for the 2005/2006 financial year.
But the money has never been accounted for. This has sparked off a widening rift between the Public accounts committee of parliament and the Lira district Local government.
Early this year, the public accounts committee of parliament summoned the district finance officers to account for the money, following reports that the money could have been diverted thru under hand dealings.
The finance officers, failed to account for the money prompting the sectoral committees to take over the investigations. The sectoral committees are expected to come up with a report which will be forwarded to the IGG for further action.
Alex Oremo A lot, the district speaker says that council is expected to pass a resolution seeking the IGGs intervention in investigating the whereabouts of the money.
But John Okolimo, the chief administrative officer, says the matter must be resolved internally before involving the IGG.
The latest scam comes on the heels of growing criticism against the increasing corruption in the district.
