Yesterday, 11th May 2022, Bushenyi district received a new laptop computer and printing machine as support to the District Integrity Promotion Forum, a project funded by GIZ.

These useful assets, were handed over by Western Ankole Civil Society Forum (WACSOF) to the offices of the Resident District Commissioner (RDC) and Police Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) respectively.

The office of the RDC, which is the District Integrity Promotion Forum coordinating desk will use the laptop for information management while the CID office will use the printer for information processing during investigations and processing of police bond.

The project will benefit three districts of Bushenyi, Mbarara and Ibanda according to WACSOF Executive Director, Mr Apollo Lee Kakonge.

In a bid to increase accountability and transparency in Local Governments in Uganda, the Directorate of Ethics and Integrity established District Integrity Promotion Forums (DIPF). The DIPF are supposed to act as watchdog to identify corruption incidences at an early stage and act immediately.
