The Inspector General of Government Irene Mulyagonja has ordered for the reinstating of interdicted Iganga Assistant Human Resource officer into office after her investigations cleared her of corruption allegations.

In a letter dated 2, March, 2015, addressed to the Iganga Chief Administrative Officer, IGG says it found no substantive evidence pinning Karim Nazima Namuganza, on the accusations of fraudulent and corrupt acts that was labelled against her in 2014.

Iganga  Chief Administrative Officer, Joseph Maira Mukasa, however says he has the powers to change workers within the district according to their performance and will not reinstate Karim Nazima Namuganza back to her position as ordered by the IGG.

In March 2014, Iganga district Local Government authority  froze 50 bank accounts in three different banks believed to belong to ghost teachers.

Unidentified people had been using the accounts to draw salaries and acquire loans amounting to 189 million shillings.

Investigations into the ghost accounts were launched by the district and Karim Nazima Namuganza was summoned together with the head teachers of the affected schools.

Iganga Chief Administrative Officer Joseph Maira Mukasa, notes that investigations carried out by the district found that the recipients of salaries on the ghost accounts were boda boda riders and some unemployed people operating within Iganga Municipality.

Karim Nazima Namuganza and those who were suspected of playing a role in maintaining the ghost accounts were interdicted.

Shaban Nkuutu, Iganga LCV chairman says it is a great blow to Iganga district to pay fines in case Karim Nazima Namuganza is found innocent.
