The Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee chaired by Serere District Woman MP Alice Alaso yesterday directed the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) to account for 27 billion shillings which is said to have been diverted to pay the stolen donor funds.

The committee rejected several explanations from OPM members that the money was diverted to pay donor money, web seeking for a proper accountability.

The Committee also discovered that only 4.3 billion shillings was refunded to donors and members want an accountability of 23 billion shillings and why accountability has not been provided to that effect.

Western Youth MP Gerald Karuhanga who is a member of the Committee said it’s sad to see tax payers’ money diverted to pay stolen donor money when the culprits are still at large.

Cabinet is said to have agreed to use taxpayers’ money to pay back billions of shillings stolen in the Office of the Prime Minister, store reliable Sources who attended the meeting said Shs38.8 billion would be withdrawn from the Consolidated Fund and refunded to development partners.
