IGG Beti Kamya Appears Before COSASE

At long last, IGG Beti Kamya has made an appearance before the Parliamentary Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and Enterprises (COSASE). This comes after she failed to show up last week after saying she had a “heart attack.”

COCASE recently opened an investigation into the controversial Shs 10.6 billion supplementary budget that the Auditor General queried in his June 30, 2021 report.

The Auditor General said they awarded this supplementary budget irregularly to the Uganda Land Commission (ULC) on Beti Kamya’s orders. She was still the Minister of Lands.

The report further shows that six claimants were non-existent.

When she appeared before headed by Joel Ssenyonyi on Wednesday, the former Lands minister distanced herself from the allegations.

Kamya said she had one role to write the letter requesting for the funds from the Ministry of Finance.

“What I did was to write a letter, a copy of which is available to the Minister of Finance. I was asking him to provide funds to Uganda Land Commission to settle some urgent claims,” Kamya told COSASE.

Beatrice Nyakaisiki, the interdicted chairperson of the ULC said the Land commission never initiated the funds.

“We did not initiate the shs 10.6 billion supplementary budge. I wrote to the then-speaker distancing ourselves from that supplementary budget,” Nyakayisiki said.

COSASE according to its chairperson Ssenyonyi, found out that the said money was used to pay false claimers, and tasked Kamya to reveal the criteria she used.

According to Kamya, the said six people are the petitions that her office received.

COSASE will therefore host the Minister of Finance Matia Kasaija to pronounce himself on the same allegation.
