About UGX 11 billion that was given to teachers by H.E Yoweri Kaguta Museveni disappeared.
Corruption is a vice the Ugandan government has campaigned against for years, but it seems to keep growing strong each year with several incidents of top government officials being involved in scandals.

About UGX 11 billion that was given to teachers by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has gone missing. According to CID Spokesperson Charles Twine, four people have been arrested, and investigations are ongoing to find out circumstances under which the funds vanished before it got to the beneficiaries.
