The Inspector General of Government Irene Mulyagonja has put to task, the officer in charge of Kiburara Prison Farm to explain the production capacity of the farm.

Located in Ibanda district, Kiburara Government Prison Farm is one of the largest farms run by Uganda Prisons, and a major source of food for inmates across the Country. The farm has more than 600 acres of maize and more than 330 head of cattle.

But the Officer in Charge of the farm Fest Sambya could hardly explain the quantities of maize planted and the actual output. He also struggled to avail other vital records at the farm, when pushed to explain details on the significance of the farm, during an impromptu visit to the prison by a team of officials from several anti-corruption agencies.

The agencies include the Inspectorate of Government, Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Asset's Authority-PPDA, Office of the Auditor General, Directorate of Ethics and Integrity and Justice, Law and Order Sector for a spot visit to the prison.

The IGG Irene Mulyagonja directed Sambya to start taking note and recording all activities undertaken at the farm in order to be able to answer any issue related to the day to day running of the area as the accounting officer.

The visit was part of a series of activities in commemoration of the anti-corruption week, held under the theme "Restoring Integrity in Public Service, Regaining Citizens trust in Anti-Corruption Fight."
