The Inspectorate of Government (IGG) has said that the office is still carrying out investigations on former Bank of Uganda supervision director as well as embattled Uganda Investment Authority Executive Director, Jolly Kaguhangire.
In a statement to journalists on 30 June 2018, the IGG said; “The Inspectorate is conducting investigations on allegations of the wealth of Justine Bagyenda, and once complete, the report will be shared with the relevant authorities only. The Information that is circulating that the Inspectorate is not conducting the investigations is false.”
“The Inspectorate is conducting investigations on the recruitment process in Uganda Investment Authority and these investigations are on-going. Once concluded, the report will be shared with the relevant authorities as well.”
The IGG clarified that she hasn’t had any meetings with the interdicted ED of UIA. But it was rather investigators from the Inspectorate of Government went to UIA to collect documents and in the process met the Executive Director of UIA.
The IGG advised journalists to always crosscheck their facts before publishing or broadcasting and stop spreading falsehoods especially with regards to her Office’s work.
This directive comes against the heels of several allegations that have been made with regards to what the IGG is investigating.
The IGG has been investigating former Bank of Uganda director of supervision, Ms Justine Bagyenda on possible links to corruption, tax evasion and fraud. The Inspectorate is also investigating the interdicted UIA ED on the recruitment process in UIA during her tenure.
On Tuesday 26 June 2018 the UIA board issued a letter stating the reasons for their decision as;
abuse of office, Insubordination, misleading and lying to the board, non compliance with the implementation of the strategic plan.
She was suspended for three months, according to a letter dated June 26 and signed by Emely Kugonza, the UIA board chairman. Kaguhangire was appointed in April 2017 and in this short period she has had a torrid time.
On June 20 2018 a letter addressed to the IGG, by the staff members said that they are concerned with the way public funds were being spent by the executive director of the authority decrying injustice and corruption.
