If u were still doubting and wondering about the 1.2bn pens that the bank of Uganda staff use then you won’t stop wondering about updf buying biscuits of 2.8bn.
This was revealed when Mps queried procurements by the defence ministry in which goods were supplied before signing contracts with suppliers.
Mps claim that the proccuments didn’t follow the public disposal of public assests Act
The procurements were done in the 2014/15 and 2015/16 financial years, and included: dry rations including biscuits and tinned beef supplied by Merge (U) valued at Shs 2.8billion; uniforms worth Shs420 million; mosquito nets worth Shs228 million; and vehicle tyres from Arrow Center worth Shs936 million.
Hon. Joseph Ssewungu of Kalungu West County asked the Ministry to provide all documents backing the procurements to clear the air on the accountability.
“How many biscuits are in a carton? How can these cost up to Shs2 billion? Is this really a minimal emergency?” Ssewungu questioned.
