The officials from Inspectorate General of Government (IGG) on Thursday morning stormed Masindi district local government head offices to investigate alleged insemination kit that went missing.

On 8th August 2016, the District Production Officer (DPO), Masindi district local government, Blasto Byabakama called for a press conference in his office to retaliate on the allegations that were raised by Patrick Kasumba, the Member of Parliament for Bujenje County over insemination kit that went missing.

Kaumba alleged that, Byamukama had received from the insemination kit from Kampala but never delivered it to Masindi district local government and put a booty of shs1million for recovery of insemination kit and gave Byabakama up to Monday evening to have availed the kit or else he would be arrested and paraded before president Museveni.

In the after mass of the above claims by MP Kasumba, sources at Masindi district local government head offices told radio Kitara that, officials from IGG’s office in Kampala came to Masindi to investigate allegations but fortunately enough, the insemination kit was found available in the office of production department.

However; Byabakama told our reporter that, he is innocent and attributed to whatever is happening to people who are witch-hunting him for unknown reasons. He said that, for the last 30 years he has severed in government, he has never been involved in any fraudulent scandal.

When contacted for a comment, the LCV chairman Masindi, Cosmas Byaruhanga said that he has not yet seen any official from IGG at the district premises adding that, because the machine is available, there is no cause for alarm.

Byaruhanga observed for a need to for having procedures in which they can best work with Members of parliament in order to harmonize the situation because Masindi district local government is an independent entity.
