Days after she halted the distribution of thousands of mosquito nets to Ugandans affected by floods in Kasese District, Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja has received at least 2,000 mosquito nets to give to the victims of this natural disaster.

When she visited victims of Kasese floods recently, PM Nabbanja was shocked to learn that suppliers contracted by the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) had distributed substandard relief items, including blankets, mosquito nets and food items.

The tough-talking Nabbanja would then halt the distribution of these items, ordering immediate suspension of the service provider and putting OPM officials who oversaw the procurement on notice.

She has since claimed that she has received threats from people some think could be the untouchable corrupt officials in high places or their allies whose toes she could already be stepping on.

But the Kakumiro District Woman MP has vowed she will not give up on the fight against corruption, making it clear she would continue demanding accountability and value for tax payers’ money.

Now, the Dr Jane Ruth Aceng-led Ministry of Health (MoH) has confirmed that PM Nabbanja has recieved a consignment of 2,000 Mosquito bed nets to be distributed to Kasese Flood victims as a way of saving them from suffering from malaria fever.

“The mosquito nets are expected to be delivered to the victims of the floods in Kasese next week,” revealed MoH. Meanwhile, heads in the OPM are expected to roll as Nabbanja seeks to rid her office of corrupt officials that take advantage of disasters to rip tax payers and make themselves rich.
