Uganda's new PM has pending corruption cases

23 September 2014, 12:13 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - A group of Ugandans has come up to oppose the appointment of the new Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda who was appointed last week claiming that he is corrupt.  

Rugunda over the weekend traveled to his home district Kabale, 400km west of Kampala where he received a heroic welcome with thousands of people turning up to welcome him.
National Consultative Forum for the political Parties and organizations (NCF) has petitioned Uganda Parliament asking its vetting committee to halt the approval of recently appointed PM, Ruhakana Rugunda  until the investigations on corruption against him are completed.

The Vice Chairperson of NCF in charge of Budget and Finance Committee, Price Apollo Oyo Nyabongo has told journalists in Kampala that Dr Rugunda, who is also chairman of the National Consultative Forum for political parties and organizations has a corruption related case against him.

Nyabongo said, ''There is a case against him before chief magistrate his worship Boniface Wamala. So we request Parliament not to approve him until the case is completely dealt with.''

He added that as members of NCF, they have  lodged a complaint to the Director of Criminal Investigations in the country against Rugunda over misuse of public funds and corruption.

The Auditor General is also reportedly carrying out  investigations over mismanagement of public funds under NCF whose monies are appropriated by parliament and are from consolidated funds.

Nyabongo also allege that since Ruhakana Rugunda was appointed as Minister of Health (the ministry he has been heading), he did not do much work citing the dilapidated Mulago Hospital located just next to the Ministry of Health offices.

The petition has been handed over to the office of the speaker, Rebecca Kadaga, by several members of NCF led by Nyabongo.

Last Friday, President Museveni dropped Amama Mbabazi as Prime Minister and appointed Ruhakana Rugunda to replace him.

Some supporters of Ruhakana Rugunda have attacked Mbabazi's camp for trying to sabotage him.

One of them, Thomas Bwire said, "Ruhakana Rugunda is one of the few Ugandans I know who are not corrupt. I am surprised that some people are rising against him as Prime Minister appointee claiming that he is corrupt. That must be Mbabazi's camp.''

Efforts to get comment from Rugunda have been fruitless because his phone was off.
