The Inspectorate General of Government (IGG) has recommended the dismissal of Bugembe Town Council Accounts Assistant Jaffar Bogere over questionable academic documents used in securing the job.

It is believed Bogere lacks requisite academic qualifications to occupy the office of accounts assistant where presented papers of his young brother, Kafude Bakali to the District Service Commisions (DSC).

Information available indicates that Bogere who does not hold a diploma in accounts, forged the certificate from Makerere University Business School (MUBS) where he enrolled but did not finish the course.

“The transcript for Diploma in Business Administration Registration Number B/03/U/6145/PS was not issued by MUBS” read in part an IGG letter which cited a communication from MUBS Registra.

The letter addressed to Jinja CAO and signed by Martin Wangadya indicates that Bogere confessed to have forged the paper which he used to get the job.

“Bogere conceded that although he enrolled for Diploma at MUBS, he did not complete his studies and he later forged the diploma which he submitted to DSC” the letter reads.

The IGG has consequently asked the CAO to save taxpayers from incurring unnecessary expenses by ensuring the errant man stops accessing government payroll.

“In view of the above, you are required to immediately delete Jaffar Bogere from payroll of Jinja district and submit him to DSC for appropriate disciplinary action including dismissal from the service for forgery and uttering false academic document.” The IGG wrote.

The IGG has also asked the police to swing in action to initiate investigations with the views of prosecuting Bogere before the courts of law over the offences. In the same views the IGG has written to the IGG has written to the Kamuli CAO to delete District senior accounts assistant Alex Baleese over impersonation and forgery of academic documents.

This was after the report emerged that two government officials where sharing the same academic document; one a teacher at St Stephen S S Budondo in Jinja and other the Kamuli District Local Government as an Accountant.

After carrying out investigation IGG found out that Baleese (SAA) did not present his original document while applying and during the interview for the job.

The IGG said the two cases are just tips of more than 10,00 scandals in the 10 districts in Busoga sub region where theft and embezzlement of public fund, corruptions, bribery, abuse of offices among others are currently under prob.
