LEADERS ON SPOT OVER MISSING OPM RELIEF FOOD

By UG Reports

KWANIA: Kwania District leaders are investigating the disappearance of 30 tons of relief food sent for flood victims by the office of the prime minister.

In December last year 1,800 households in Chawente and Nambieso Sub Counties were submerged by floods from Lake Kwania, which also destroyed garden crops.

Reports from the office of the prime minister indicate that a total 20,000 KG of maize, and 10,000 KG of beans were dispatched to Kole District to support the affected persons.

In a letter from the office of the prime minister to Kwania district CAO dated 25/2/2022, they are demanding an accountability report, of the relief food which was never received.

Geoffrey Alex Ogwal Adyebo, the Kwania LCV chairman says they are now investigating the whereabouts of the relief food.

Adyebo told our reporter that the district received a letter saying the OPM had dispatched food relief for the district but unfortunately the said food relief never reached the district stores.

“The letter was a little bit ambiguous, it didn’t state the date on which the food relief would be delievered but only that the food relief is on the way” Ogwal said.

Kwania district chief administrative officer Francis Opolot said they are following up on the matter to ensure the flood victims benefit from the same.

Kwania district woman member of parliament Kenny Auma asked the district leaders to join hands with the MPs to follow up on the missing relief food.
