Ghosts – Iganga Loses Sh900 Million

At least 50 bank accounts reportedly run by ghost-teachers have been frozen by Iganga district authorities. Over five years, officials estimate that Shs 700m has been withdrawn from the accounts, whose owners have not been working. Chief Administrative Officer Maira Mukasa said the ‘ghosts’ were also believed to have accessed salary loans worth Shs 189m.

Mukasa said many of the ‘ghosts’ were boda boda cyclists and unemployed people in Iganga municipality. “We have got their photos from the banks and any time the law will take its course,” Mukasa said.
