Mutebile Won’t Quit– NRM


prescription sick geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 115%;”>The ruling party’s caucus Monday night agreed to exonerate Mutebile for his role in causing government financial loss during compensation to the businessman who had lost tenders for city markets, link symptoms saying his dismissal would trigger an economic crisis.

Already fears of Mutebile’s possible sacking caused the dollar to shoot to Shs2600 as of Tuesday morning.

Bahati says while Mutebile never consulted his board before signing letters of comfort guaranteeing Bank of Uganda to pay Basajja’s debts at the tune of Shs142b, the nation still needs him.

He says Mutebile made a mistake which was forgivable considering the role he is playing in strengthening Uganda’s economy.

The decision to pardon Mutebile came after Museveni prevailed over MPs at State House Entebbe, arguing he technically committed no offence.

So far Museveni has sacked two ministers Syda Bumba and Kidhu Makubuya and several State House aides over the saga.

Alongside Mutebile, the two ministers were implicated by a Parliamentary Accounts Committee probe.

Mutebile has since made it clear to all and sundry that he is not ready to resign.

“I am not going anywhere. This is my job, I am not stepping down; even Museveni can’t sack me because I did not commit any offence. The market should not be worried because of the rumblings in Parliament,” he told press last week.
