Office of Ugandan PM Under Investigation

Worries over 'financial impropriety' prompted the parliamentary probe


THE parliamentary committee on presidential affairs has unanimously agreed to undertake a thorough investigation into the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) over financial impropriety.

The decision to investigate both the technical people and the ministers was reached during a closed door meeting Thursday.

"It has come to the knowledge of the committee that it is not only the technical people involved, but also politicians," committee chairperson, Barnabas Tinkasiimire said after the meeting.

Prior to the closed door meeting the committee met a team from OPM led by the Third Deputy Prime Minister, Moses Ali that had come to respond to a petition filed to the committee by MP, Peter Ogwang (youth, NRM) over financial impropriety in OPM.
