PAC Commits Kyambogo Officials to CID over Sh17bn

Officials from Kyambogo University have Wednesday been committed to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Police by the Parliamentary Public Accountability Committee (PAC) over failure to account for over Sh 8.856billion.

The officials were appearing before PAC to respond to queries raised in the Auditor General’s report for the Financial Year 2014/15. They included the Ag. University Secretary, pharmacy Patrick Madaya, viagra Academic Registrar, stomach Rose G. Bwire and Sen. Ass Bursar, William Kisule.

The decision to have them arrested and handed over to the CID was reached after legislators found them in bleach of several laws by withholding relevant information concerning accountability queries.

According to the report, the officials failed to account for Sh7.080bn as domestic arrears, Sh2.441bn with no supported adequate documents and accrued payables of Sh8.855bn.

“The law doesn’t accept hiding information, from our interactions with these people; it is evident that they hid information from the Auditor General during the audit time. They came before Parliament, and they are also continuing to lie because what they have written down as responses is different from what they are telling us,” noted the Committee Chairperson, Angelina Osege.

Osege noted that on the on-set, the officials had intentions of defrauding the institution hence denying the auditor general relevant information.

“The monies they are talking about, Sh8.8bn we think it was not actually properly spent, there are questions against that money, so we have asked them to go make statements before the CID, they will end up in CPS (Central Police Station) until we communicate to them,” Osege said.

“We have asked them to come back next week with their predecessors to respond to these queries but for now, they have to know that it is a serious crime to hide information and lying to a committee of Parliament.”

In his response, the Ag. University Secretary, Patrick Madaya told the committee that the adjusted domestic arrears and corresponding ledgers are available for review.

He added that documentations for Sh2.441bn have been traced while documents detailing the accrued payables amounting to Sh8.856bn were made available for review by the Auditors.
