The Wakiso district land offices were shocked yesterday to receive uninvited guests led by the newly launched Anti-Corruption Unit under the command of Lt Col Edith Nakalema, CID, police and officials from the office of the auditor general.
The offices were later closed with no entrance and exit and it was here, that the search and investigations started.
The Anti Corruption Unit discovered that the offices were being used by a group of land brokers for buying and selling land. The presidential press secretary Don Wanyama added that State House had received various complaints through the numbers that were aired to curb corruption alleging that the district offices were under corrupt officials and hence paid a visit to investigate the matter.
It was also discovered that many workers at the place didn’t have government working permits which led to their arrests.
Clients who had turned up to transact their businesses had to sit until about five pm when access to the offices was finally granted.
