Locals in Butaleja District have raised concern over continued poor service delivery due to rampant corruption.

They say access to better education, healthcare and roads has been compromised.

The Inspector General of Government (IGG) is currently investigating about 16 cases of corruption in the district.

Mr James Wire, Busolwe hospital board chairperson, said schools built or renovated using government funds, are in a [sorry ]state yet contractors were paid in full.

Mr Wire said materials supplied by the central government hardly reach the recipients in their full quantities.

IGG is investigating cases that include alleged division of funds meant for gravelling roads in Busolwe Town Council, mismanagement and embezzlement of government funds in Naweyo Sub-county and mismanagement of resources.

Mr David Mulabi, a resident, said unless corruption is fought, access to services will remain a challenge.
