The Chairperson of the Committee Hon Oboth Oboth acknowledged the role of the Inspectorate of Government (IG) in the fight against corruption. He noted that the IG had become a household name and confirmed that the committee would always support the IG.

The Committee members called upon the IG to strengthen its regional offices in order to enhance the fight against corruption at the Local Government level. The Deputy IGG however, informed the Members of Parliament that some of the challenges of corruption especially in local governments were: lack of supervision, cultural issues, capacity issues and the need to solve the problems at the source.

The Secretary to the Inspectorate of Government ranked the unfunded priorities to be considered for IG for the financial year 2018/19 as: Staff training, payment of rent and payment of NSSF.
