The head of the Anti-Corruption Unit of State House, Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema, has handed over five grinding mills to women in Amolatar district.
The mill had been hijacked by former state minister for finance, Caroline Akao.
She had even registered it as her own private organisation.
The machines were given to the women in 2010 and installed in 2012 but the minister blocked women and district leaders from accessing them.
Nakalema said she investigated the matter and finally directed the minister to de-register the mills.
She handed over a memo sent to the Uganda Registration Service Bureau, indicating the mills now belong to the women and will be managed by the district administration on behalf of the women.
She also handed over a land title and buildings constructed by the UPDF engineers’ brigade.
