MPs Want Musenero Censored Over Covid 19 Vaccine Funds

Hon. Yona Musinguzi, the Ntungamo Municipality MP, has led Members of Parliament on the process of censuring Dr. Monica Musenero, the Minister for Science, Technology and Innovation.

This has come hours after a parliamentary probe recommended for disbandment and suspension of Preside, a company that received close to Shs 30 billion to manufacture Covid-19 vaccine with the support of Musenero.

Musinguzi in November last year petitioned Parliament over the alleged misappropriation of funds. They allocated these funds for research and manufacture of Covid-19 vaccine during the second wave of the pandemic.

Due to this, parliament set up an ad hoc committee to investigate the matter. Hon. Xavier Kyooma the MP Ibanda North is the chairman of this committee.

“The committee observed that in as much as Preside had a plan to set up production activity, they had not been cleared by the central public health laboratories to commercially produce diagnostic kits. This thus leaves a gap recommending for the disbandment and suspension of funding towards Preside,” Kyooma said.

Due to the uncertainties surrounding the whole situation, some MPs called for the censorship of Musenero. By the close of business yesterday, six MPs had appended their signatures on the motion.

“It is high time we start fighting thieves. I want now to categorically state that I have already signed mine and Musenero should go where she belongs,” said Naboth Namanya, the Rubabo MP.
