Elders in Karamoja sub-region have accused Inspectorate of Government (IG) officials at the regional office in Moroto for failing to stamp out corruption in their area.

Speaking to Daily Monitor on Sunday, the elders alleged that on several occasions they have filed cases with the IGG involving district leaders that have embezzled funds meant for public projects but no action or report has been availed to the public on the course of action.

However, Mr Sempagala Siraje, the Regional Inspectorate Officer dismissed the allegations, saying their office has never downplayed any case.

He said most of the cases are under investigation and that the office cannot reveal anything before they are concluded.

The IG Spokesperson Ms Munira Ali advised the concerned residents to always seek updates on the pending cases to know the progress.
