WATER minister Kahinda Otafiire has said the former Inspector General of Government (IGG), Jotham Tumwesigye, messed him up when he halted the construction of valley dams.
The dams were being constructed by Basangira, who was contracted by the water ministry to build dams in Rakai and Sembabule districts.
The IGG halted the construction and stopped further payments to Basangira, citing irregularities.
â€œThe IGG did not know what he was doing. He really messed up our things. It is unfortunate. I donâ€™t know what to do next,â€ he said.
Otafiire was yesterday appearing before MPs on the national economy committee to present a $12.59m (sh22b) loan request for approval to provide water to parts of eastern and northern Uganda.
