6BN CASH BONANZA: ‘Hand Shakers’ Rush to Kadaga

URA Boss Doris Akol

The Uganda Revenue Authority’s Commissioner General Doris Akol and two other government officials who shared the infamous 6bn oil tax cash on Monday afternoon made an suspiciously  unannounced visit to the Speaker of Parliament, information pills Rebecca Kadaga.

Akol, order Justice and Constitutional Affairs’ Commissioner for Legal and Advisory Services Christopher Gashirabake and Ministry of Finance Commissioner for Tax Policy Moses Kaggwa entered Parliament at 3:45 PM through the main gate opposite Justice Ministry headquarters and headed straight to the 6th floor where the Speaker’s Chambers is located.

Sources at the Speaker’s office told ChimpReports that the trio’s visit was not in the arranged schedules of the day.

The secrete meeting that ensued Chimpreports understands, was also attended by the Government Chief Whip Ruth Nankabirwa.

Akol and Gashirabake got 242 million each in the scandal while the youthful Kagwa bagged 234m.

Their rushing to the Speaker comes just a day before the anticipated opening of inquiry into the cash bonanza by Parliament as the house resumes on Tuesday.

It also came hours before the Constitutional Court issued an interim order barring Parliament or any other body from investigating the scandal.

MPs last week formed a Group for Action to make sure all the officials involved in the matter are held accountable and made to return the money.

ChimpReports on Monday last week broke the story of the cash bonanza in which officials of URA, Finance Ministry and Office of the Attorney General shared the money as bonuses for their roles in the tax battle between Uganda and the British oil company, Heritage.

This website established that after the first meeting with Kadaga, Akol left Parliament using a different route and a car belonging to one of the ministers of Finance that we have withheld the names.

Meanwhile Kagwa and Gashirabake remained in Parliament to likely continue with meetings with the speaker.
