The Inspectorate of Government (IG) has arrested the Ag. Secretary Lyantonde District Land Board, Sekamatte John Mary, for soliciting a 250,000/= bribe to process a land title.

According to the complainant, who was processing a title for his land, Sekamatte asked for the money claiming it was an allowance for members of the district land board. When the complainant requested for a receipt, Sekamatte allegedly told him it was not necessary since it was normal procedure at Lyantonde District Land Board.

The complainant then sought help from the IG's Masaka Regional Office. A trap was laid and Sekamatte was arrested after receiving the bribe. He is currently in IG custody pending trial.
