Speaking to the journalists after the launch, Her Excellence Alupo noted that the sensitization campaign is aimed at equipping leaders with information about government properties and the knowledge of fighting corruption in the country at all levels.
She further says that before this is done, all elected leaders must submit the details of their assets, income and liabilities to avoid demotion at all.
Mariam Wangadya, the Deputy Inspector General of Government says that there is still time for elected leaders to submit their assets through online platform that was launched by the IGG in May this year 2021.
