Jinja, April 17, 2023: Jinja City is one of the towns which have become known with a number of controversies.
The new City is now synonymous with property related scandals. Some of the examples are property row on the Asian buildings, land and corruption.
As a result, the above cited rows and corruption have some led civil servants including top police officers landing into “ethical problems”.
A couple of months ago, a government grader worth shs2b disappeared under mysterious circumstances from the Council Yard. It would later be recovered as scraps sold to some dealers in the City.
Jinja City Law Enforcement Officer Denis Bimboona was said to be the mastermind. After knowing he was being looked for, for arrest, he “flew outside the City to the Capital, Kampala” where he was hiding.
Weeks later, he was caught from his hideout in Kampala and charged before the Court of Law following the grader incident.
