The Ntungamo District Engineer Dismus Tumushangye has been arrested.  Tumushangye who is in charge of the water department is accused of diverting government resources during the financial year 2021/22.  

It is alleged that Tumushangye diverted the construction of a community water tank at a Church in Rwebirere- Buhara parish, Ngoma Sub County to the home of a resident Robert Buhungu.  

Tumushangye was arrested on Tuesday on the orders of the Deputy Inspector General of Government Anne Twinomugisha Muhairwe. This was after residents complained to her about the lack of water in the area.

The construction of the water tank is among the over 20 projects that are being investigated by the IGG.   

Before he was arrested, Tumushangye was tasked to explain to the residents why he diverted the project. 

Tumushangye was later transferred to the Ntungamo Central Police Station by District Police Commander Hannington Bushaija.  

Muhairwe said the key challenges in the Ntungamo district local government include minimal supervision of projects which leads to corruption.  She promised to investigate all the scandals and come up with key recommendations to curb the loss of government funds.   

The Chief Administrative Officer Mathias Ndifuna promised to follow up on the issues raised by the residents.
