Shock As Govt Loses Shs 4 Trillion In Court Cases

Auditor General John Muwanga

Lubaga South Member of Parliament, viagra sale Kenny Lukyamuzi and Conservative Party president general is contemplating legal action against CBS presenter and DP member Kato Lubwama accusing him of using the Royal Radio to denigrate his name and that of his daughter, viagra sale Suzan Nampijja.

In a letter to Buganda Kingdom Prime Minister and CBS management seen by Chimpreports, Lukyamuzi complains that the two were yet to take action against Lubwama despite his earlier lodged grumble.

He says the radio presenter has continued to insult him through his Kalisoliso program which runs from 7:30 AM to 7: 50 AM daily.

Kato Lubwama is nursing ambitions to unseat Lubaga South MP Lukyamuzi in the oncoming 2016 general elections.

“My heart is bleeding over the fabricated utterances and insults mounted on me and my daughter Suzan Nampijja for the last two years on a daily basis,” Reads the letter in part.

“Kato Lubwama on a daily basis uses the Royal Radio to label us all sorts of things with condemnation that we don’t deserve to exist materially; he has tarnished our names with no explanation save that he wants to contest Lubaga South seat.”

“Lubwama’s deeds are actionable in court but our problem is that suing him would call for suing his employers as well under the doctrine of servant –master relationship; we are reluctant to do that until we have heard from you.”

Lukyamuzi added that Lubwama is doing a shame to his political party and the entire multi-party fraternity.

“A lot of what is uttered by Kato Lubwama in the said radio program is defamatory and in the tort of defamation, both the employer and the employee would be suable.”

“My family and I have a name to protect, we have not even decided whether we are contesting the Lubaga South seat again or not; why should he make our lives difficult?”

“The purpose of this letter is to seek for your legal advice on the way forward; we can’t stand Lubwama’s insults anymore.”

The letter was copied to Buganda Prime Minister, Charles Peter Mayega, the Speaker of Buganda [Lukiiko] parliament, Chairman Buganda caucus in parliament, J.S. Mayanja Nkanji, the Ag president Democratic Party, the managing editor CBS, Kaddu Kiberu, Suzan Nampijja and Kato Lubwama.

As Ugandans eagerly wait for the Financial Year 2015/2016 budget, order fresh reports have emerged that government has incurred losses totaling to Shs 4.3 trillion nearly one third of the last year`s total budget.

The staggering loss going up from 2.2 trillion arose from numerous court cases lost by the government to the individuals.

The shocking development came out during the presentation of the Auditor General`s report of 2013/2014 to Parliament on Tuesday, approved handed to the Deputy Speaker, cheapest Jacob Oulanya Lanywen.

The report closely looked at and examined financial discipline in the public institutions, local government and the central government entities.

The Auditor General, John Muwanga who led the team said government ought to cease carelessly blowing tax payers’ money, adding that such would eventually have adverse effects on the national budget.

“The government should do something to reduce the rate at which it loses cases to people. It is not simply cases but it is money that later encroaches on our budget.” Mr. Muwanga said.

Muwanga added that accumulated interest itself from these awards had reached nearly half a trillion, yet Ministry  of Justice and Constitutional Affairs which makes these awards has its budget way less that this amount.

“It is unfortunate to report that the failure by Government to settle these court awards and compensations has led to interest rising to Shs 442 billion.”

He noted that besides the notable Tullow case in London, back home government was yet to win any significant case in court.

The trend at which government losses cases prompted the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga to propose that the House puts up an independent legal representative separate from that of government.

This however requires a constitutional amendment since all government institutions are represented by Attorney General.

The Auditor General`s report also shows low absorption of Government funds and in the end many government entities failing to implement the projects that would have benefited the public.
