Let Bigirimana Refund Lost OPM Cash-MPs Demand
Members of parliament sitting on the Public Accounts Committee have demanded that the permanent secretary in the Office of the Prime Minister ,Pius Bigirimana refund the lost Peace and Recovery Development Plan (PRDP) funds .
PAC’s draft report indicated that the Permanent Secretary and other senior ministry officials are responsible for the loss of of the money which was meant for redeveloping northern Uganda after the two decades of the Lords Resistance Army conflict.
The chairperson of the committee Kassiano Wadri told reporters at parliament on Monday that the report is almost complete but did not tell much about the contents . The final report will soon be handed over to the Speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga.
The MPs in their investigations let off the hook the Prime Minister, Mr Amama Mbabazi and the First Lady Janet Museveni after they found no evidence to pinning them to the late of the PRDP funds.
Throughput investigations in the scandal, Bigirimana has denied any involvement in the loss of PRDP funds.
