The Auditor General, http://cinsellikteperformans.com/media/widgetkit/widgets/slideshow/styles/screen/template.php John F.S Muwanga in November last year authorized the dishing out of Shs6bn to government officials who allegedly participated in the legal battle between Uganda and Heritage Oil Company.

ChimpReports has unearthed all the letters written by the senior officials in aggressively initiating, pursuing, identifying, allocating, approving and final disbursing of the funds.

In one of the letters, Mr. Muwanga on 1st November 2016 comfortably sanctioned the dubious expenditure without pre-auditing as explicitly stated in the Audit Warrant memo number REC:007/2016/2017 that this website has a copy.

“In accordance with Article 154(3) of the 1995 Constitution and Section 31 and 32 of the Public Finance Management Act 2015, I hereby grant a credit to the Treasury on the Consolidated Fund Account with Bank of Uganda Kampala to the tune of Ush.6,000,000,000 as specified on requisition number 016/2016/17 dated 20th/10/2016 for the financial year ending 30th June 2017 for Uganda Revenue Authority: (Vote 141: Supplementary Recurrent Budget),” part of Muwanga’s letter said.

The letter was addressed to the Minister of Finance Planning and Economic Development, Matia Kasaija and copied to the Governor Bank of Uganda, Emmanuel Mutebile, Secretary to the Treasury, Keith Muhakanizi and the Accountant General.

“No pre-audit of the release has been made,” the letter stressed adding that the Office of the Auditor General shall only verify when the amount is already spent.

“The amount spent from the release and documents will be post audited and the expenditure shall be subjected to a post audit procedure and matters arising there from shall be subjected to accountability laws and regulations thereof.”

It should be noted that Muwanga on Wednesday told journalists at Parliament his institution is going to probe the matter but did not open to the nation that he was also involved in the approval.

Mr. Muwanga while submitting his institution’s annual performance reports and value for money audits for Financial Year ended June 2016 to the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, said the event happened when they had completed their 2015/2016 work calendar.

“We have equally seen the media reports on the bonuses and we are certainly going to check on the anomalies involved,” he said at Parliament.

“The event happened when we had finished the work for this latest report. Our audit on it is going to be captured in the next report,” Mr. Muwanga added.

The Auditor General is responsible for auditing and reporting on financial statements of all government ministries, departments, offices and agencies, offices and organizations operating under the legislative authority, Independent Commissions and Independent Offices established in accordance with the Constitution and law and all offices operating under the same and all offices and organizations operating under the judicial authority.

ChimpReports is continuing to publish the documents in our subsequent articles.
