According to Ms Muniira, the inspectorate received a complaint in which it was alleged that Mitooma District Service Commission advertised several jobs in February 2018, and the exercise was marred with irregularities.
This led to an investigation that has resulted into the arrest of the four officials. She said actions of corruption reported all took place in April 2018.
Findings from investigations indicate that Byamugisha corruptly sought gratification of Shs2.5 million from Keleth Atamba as an inducement to get him a job as a Procurement Officer of Mitooma District Local Government.
The same official is said to have received gratification of Shs1.5milliom on his phone number from Atamba in April 2018 to secure him the same job.
