Over the past five years, the Government has supplied 52,000 head of cattle to people in West Nile, Acholi, Lango and Teso sub-region as part of the expanded livestock restocking programme that started in 2013.

Grace Kwiyucwiny, the state minister for northern Uganda, said at the end of this year, a special evaluation audit would be conducted by the Government, to establish whether the 52,000 animals had reached the intended beneficiaries in the past five years.

Kwiyucwiny, who was speaking during the launch of the Inspectorate of Government (IG) report on Transparency, Accountability and Anti-Corruption (TAAC) component of the $130m (about sh480b) second Northern Uganda Social Action Fund (NUSAF 2) yesterday, said each financial year, sh5b was allocated to the cattle restocking project.

According to the Inspector General of Government (IGG), Ms Irene Mulyagonja, Government has saved the $130m NUSAF 2 cash by 99.98% through the Transparency, Accountability and Anti-Corruption model.

Under the model, Mulyagonja said her office worked with communities where the NUSAF projects were implemented, to monitor the projects and report any abuse and misappropriation of the resources.

“Community social monitoring improved the demand side of accountability,” she said, revealing that only one case of corruption had been registered during the five-year period of NUSAF 2.

Munira Ali, the IG Spokesperson, said the Prime Minister Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, had already ordered that the IG’s TAAC model be incorporated in all government projects so that the success of NUSAF 2, in terms of minimising corruption, was replicated.
