Local leaders in Amuru district have announced a crack down operation on government officials that are allegedly accused of alternating names for the Emyooga funds costing government millions of money.
While addressing public during the District Integrity Promotion Forum held at Amuru district headquarters, the Deputy Resident District Commissioner Amuru Augustine Modo said several groups of beneficiaries were registered out of forgery.
Modo noted that several groups of taxi operators ,welders among others have submitted names which do not match with mobile numbers adding that the leaders will be answerable if they confirm these allegations
We shall go to the field for monitoring and if we confirm the commercial officers will be held responsible for having altered the names of beneficiariesAugustine Modo
He explained that the residents who are complaining about the procedures followed to access Emyooga fund should stop because this program was designed with conditions to ensure that the beneficiaries rightly use it but not making them give up on the fund as they assume.
Alfred Odoch the Accountability Champion Amuru district confirmed that majority of the numbers submitted to the district are forged that when they try to call them ,they belong to different people who are even outside Amuru district.
Odoch further noted that most of the people are now giving up on Emyooga funds due to the bureaucracy to access it such as beneficiaries first paying commitment fee which has hindered many of the poor from getting it and left for the rich.
