Shell in UNRA corruption scandle
Shell Uganda has been named in the illegal procurement of fuel by UNRA according to information provided to the commission of inquiry.
According to a UNRA internal audit, Shell Uganda over-invoiced a sum of Shs 1.4 billion between July 2012 and February 2013 for fuel supplies to the road authority with a part payment of Shs 1.1 billion made.
The audit report of 2013 raised red flags and a police investigation was initiated by Deputy Director CIID, Godfrey Musana.
UNRA stations across Uganda at the time used monthly cards to draw fuel from the various Shell stations in Uganda.
It’s suspected that officers in UNRA connived with some fuel stations to cause the inflated invoice payments.
