decease geneva;”> “I have now received a letter from the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) stating that the subject matter of the investigations by the Committee are now ongoing cases before High Court of Uganda, Anti-Corruption Division to wit HCT-00-AC-SC-0138-2012 and ACD-00-CSC-105 of 2012,” said Kadaga, in a letter dated February 8, to the PAC Chairperson.
She added: “The thrust of the letter is that the investigations before the Committee including the appearances of witnesses who are also appearing or lined up as witnesses before the courts of law are high prejudicial to the ongoing criminal cases.”
Kadaga then ordered: “I therefore direct that you stop the investigations until such time when the cases have been concluded or as otherwise further directed.”
Interestingly, Wadri told journalists at Parliament on Friday that Kadaga did not intend to stop the committee from carrying out any more investigations.
“Her letter was only restricted to people who were supposed to appear before court on February 14 and 18,” said Wadri.
Wadri further said PAC would resume its work on February 26.
The PAC boss’ statement could expose the populist nature of the Speaker who had earlier branded herself as nonpartisan and independent in steering Parliament business.
Chimpreports is today publishing the two letters which confirm that indeed Kadaga directed PAC to halt investigations into the scandal.
