Uganda: Report on oil sector bribery scandal missing

 

A police file on Cabinet ministers accused of pocketing millions of dollars in kickbacks from foreign oil companies cannot be traced, it emerged yesterday.

While the President last year had told Parliament that an investigation by police found the documents incriminating ministers Sam Kutesa (Foreign Affairs), Hilary Onek (Internal Affairs) and Amama Mbabazi (Prime Minister) in bribery scandals forged, a senior police officer told MPs on the Ad hoc Committee on oil that there is no report.

Assistant Inspector General of Police Asan Kasingye also told the Committee that the officer who investigated the matter has since been sent on a study leave out of the country.

Mr Kasingye, who is the new director Interpol, said Mr John Ndungutse, the former head of the Counter-Terrorism Unit, did the investigations as a special assignment but no report has ever been produced on his findings.

“The IGP made a statement that there were investigations into the bank accounts in Malta and Dubai linked to some ministers but I have not seen any report. “When IGP instructed me to come (to the Committee), he did not tell me whether there is any report to be presented. The officer who carried these investigations is in USA studying at the FBI academy”

Cecilia Ogwal (Dokolo Woman, FDC) and Committee chairperson Michael Werikhe (Bungokho South, NRM) insisted that Kayihura be summoned to clarify on the missing report.

The Committee accused the police of connivance and demanded that the report be tabled to prove that the documents tabled in Parliament by Gerald Karuhanga (Youth Western) were fake.

In October last year during a special session to debate the oil sector, Mr Karuhanga presented documents alleging that ministers Kutesa, Onek, and Mbabazi had received bribes from oil companies.
The ministers, however, deny any wrongdoing.
