By Baluku Alex

The Office of the Prime Minister has replaced the 1,000 mosquito nets that it recently rejected to be supplied the floods in Kasese district.

On Tuesday last week, the Prime Minister, Robinah Nabbanja rejected the supply of the same amount of nets together with blankets arguing that they were substandard to be given to the affected persons.

Over the weekend, the Prime Minister directed the State House Anti-Corruption Unit to come to Kasese and investigate whether the items including maize flour, beans, sugar, Jerricans and soap among others that had been earlier delivered to the district stores were of good quality.

Last evening, a new consignment of mosquito nets was delivered to the district stores to replace the already halted ones.

While receiving the consignment, the Kasese District Chief Administrative Officer, Amis Masereka Asuman, pledged that they would supply the donation to the affected persons in four Internally Displaced Camps including Muhokya, Kyambogho, Kasese Humanist and Katulu primary schools.

In his remarks after witnessing the delivery of the consignment aboard a government double cabin UG 07162, the Kasese Deputy RDC, Joshua Kisembo Masereka rubbished the allegations that the previous nets were of poor quality.

According to him, the said nets were only undersized, adding that they were only the blankets that were of poor quality.
