Rukungiri municipality Member of Parliament Roland Mugume Kaginda has blamed the government for spending a lot of money funding officials to go abroad for benchmarking on issues related to accountability yet there are institutions in the country that are corruption free which government can use to learn from and reverse the trend.
Kaginda said Immaculate Heart girls school is one of such institutions that have become model for proper utilization of government funds in infrastructural development.
Citing an example Kaginda said that a multipurpose complex built by Immaculate heart girls school administrators was initially put to a tune of 22 billion shillings by government officials but the administrators were able to construct it using less than 5 billion.
Kaginda said these administrators deserve medals than those who received them because of supporting the system.
According to Sister Gladace Kachope the school headmistress, the Jubilee complex with sitting capacity of more than thousand people, was built to mark fifty years of existence of the school and will house a chapel, dinning and main halls as well as class rooms.
Kaginda further said that he has requested the parliament of Uganda to send accountability committee of parliament for bench marking at immaculate heart which he suggests to be a learning center for government institutions on matters of accountability and transiency instead of spending millions of money to go to the United States of America.
