Ugandan Speaker Orders Audit of Treasury Over Controversial Loan

The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga has asked for a special audit of Treasury accounts to establish how and where U.S.$200 million was spent, after a parliamentary report that said Finance Minister Matia Kasaija should be censured. Kadaga said parliament needed to understand a controversial loan procured by the ministry to fund the National Medical Stores but which was later diverted for other purposes.

Secretary to the Treasury Keith Muhakanizi, left, and Finance Minister Matia Kasaija appear before Parliament’s Public Accounts Committee last year.
