Prime Minister, Robinah Nabbanja, had said the government had started investigating how opposition members acquired their wealth.
Nabbanja said this during a workshop for chairpersons, deputy chairpersons of parliamentary committees.
She also said the government is embarking on a campaign of zero tolerance to corruption.
“Many of you who are in parliament know what the opposition members of parliament do in their oversight committees. Most of them are very rich, we are aware. How did they amass this wealth?”
Consequently, it’s on this point that Mpuuga reacted. According to him this is sheer blackmail of the opposition members.
“I have seen a trending issue on various social media platforms attributed to the PM of Uganda! In her warped view, opposition MPs should be investigated for their wealth. I want to assure her of my support on this matter. Otherwise, no amount of blackmail shall stand in the way of PAC from investigating the botched OPM Covid-19 relief bonanza,” Mpuuga wrote.
However, Mathias Mpuuga also saysthis blackmail will not scare the Public Accounts Committee.
Apparently the PAC is investigating the botched Covid-19 relief bonanza.
Most of the intended people to receive the Ugshs100,000 didn’t actually receive their share for reasons not yet clear. This though is under investigation.
