IGG set To Investigate The Rot At Parliament

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

What started as a social media hash tag championed by Journalist Agatha Atuheire and Dr Spire Ssentongo on X formerly twitter has left heads rolling and making unknown revelations over the affairs at parliament.


Under the #UgandaParliamentExhibition many revelations regarding cash transactions have come out and netizens have been left questioning of how tax payer’s money is spent. It’s through the #UgandaParliamentExhibition that the scramble and partition of over Shs1.7billion was shared by four parliamentary commissioners. 

Hon Solomon Silwany, Esther Afoyochan, Prossy Mbabazi Akampurira and Mathias Mpuuga shared a whooping Shs1.7b amongst themselves as service award. Mpuuga got the Lion’s share with Shs500m which has since caused him troubles with his president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine.

This is not the first online exhibition, on the sidelines of the parliament exhibition, there was a UPDF exhibition which also unearthed some information but the Kampala Pothole Exhibition staged early last year caused discomfort and forced the president to engage the leadership of KCCA and even ordered for funds to be released to fix city roads.

Now the Inspector General of Government (IGG) has revealed that even before the #UgandaParliamentExhibition her office had received several complaints from people and whistleblowers about the rot in the parliament headed by Rt Hon Anita Among. Betty Olive Namisango Kamya (BONK) says she will take an interest in investigating the deals cut from parliament and misuse of public funds and corruption by officials of parliament. 

Severally MPs especially opposition have revealed that they receive some controversial cash which some normally return while others just chew it without fear or favor but with flavor. In December, MP Muwanga Kivumbi revealed that legislators were set to receive some Shs100m for passing supplementary budgets worth Shs7 trillions which government borrowed in December last year.
