The Inspector General of Government-IGG Beti Olive Namisango Kamya has been tasked to investigate corruption in City markets.
The call was made by the Minister for Kampala and Metropolitan Affairs Hajjat Minsa Kabanda.
She noted that leaders in the City Markets are collecting garbage fees, despite the services being provided by KCCA.
President Yoweri Museveni suspended collections in markets two years ago. However, Kabanda says that markets have continued to collect money and failed to account for it.
She was speaking on Tuesday at a workshop at the Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala where the Inspectorate of Government- IG was meeting political leaders in Kampala.
In September last year, Kabanda demanded accountability for money collected in markets including Owino Market and Nakasero market. She says, her investigations indicate that more than One Billion Shillings have been collected but unaccounted for.
Kabanda also asked the IGG to Investigate why in Wandegeya market, there are unoccupied lockups yet there is a presence of street vendors. Close to 100 lockups in Wandegeya Market are under lock and key by tenants who acquired them and turned them into stores.
