Atleast 8 senior Electoral Commission officials have been fired over alleged corruption.
They include the commission’s Secretary Sam Rwakoojo, spokesperson Jotham Taremwa and IT director Pontius Namugera.
The woes stem from a cancelled multi-billion shilling ballot printing deal entered into with German firm, Veridos Identity Solutions GMBH, that is under investigation by the IGG.
The Inspectorate’s spokesperson Munira Ali says they are also investigating millions of shillings spent on consultancy services for the development of an Electoral Commission Communication Strategy.
