Minister Kasaija Hails President’s Intervention on Mutebile-IGG Row
The Minister of Finance, Planning and Economic Development Matia Kasaija commends President Yoweri Museveni for mediating between the governor Bank of Uganda Emmanuel Tumusiime Mutebile and Inspectorate of Government, Irene Mulyagonja to resolve the standoff between the two institutions
The red line between the two powerful government institutions was drawn in February when governor bank of Uganda Emmanuel Mutebile sacked executive director in charge of supervision Justine Bagyenda who was set to retire in June this year and replaced her with Tumubweine Twinemanzi, a former director for industry affairs and content and the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC)
Following the prompt reshuffles, Mulyagonja wrote a letter to Mutebile and the board halting the transfers with immediate effect until such a time when the investigation by the inspectorate has been concluded to which Mutebile disagrees.
Now Kasaija says the stalemate taints Uganda’s image abroad and may affect the economy.
