Ombudsman moves to publish names of embezzlement convicts
Names of people convicted of embezzlement of public funds may soon be made public, the Office of the Ombudsman has said. Speaking a day after releasing a list of person who were convicted of taking or giving a bribe, published in this newspaper on Friday, Appauline Gashumba, the in charge of fighting corruption and related offences in the Office of the Ombudsman, said publishing names of seemingly low profile convicts should not create the perception that high profile offenders are protected.
