The Member of Parliament Nyendo –Mukungwe who is also the Leader of the Opposition Mathias Mpuuga has tasked security agencies in Masaka sub region to explain the current insecurity in the area.
Mpuuga said that the country is still under curfew and people are always inside their houses at 7:00 pm wondering who is terrorizing people when it’s only security people who are always outside.
He made remarks while addressing journalists in Masaka city in his part of his engagements with media nationwide.
“Our people are always indoors very early because of curfew and only security is left outside to protect people but the results are opposite,” Mpuuga said
Mpuuga was accompanied by Joyce Bagala member of parliament Mityana district, Dr Abed Bwanika Mp Kimanya –kabonera , Juliet Kakande Mp Masaka city and Goretti Namugga Mp Mawogola county constituency in Sembabule district .
The legislators indicated that their recent monitoring of disbursement of Emyooga presidential fund has revealed a variety of loopholes in the program.
According to Dr Bwanika , some associations in his constituency have not used a single penny of the money and the funds are lying idle on various accounts while others borrowed the money but haven’t recovered anything n paying back the loan .
“We have discovered a lot of loopholes in the exercise among others, the shortest period of four months to recover loans which Ugandans can’t afford given the COVID-19 pandemic financial constraints,” he said
He wondered whether the framers of emyooga fund forethought on which viable business Ugandans can do to recover money in just four months.
Namugga told the witness that in her constituency things are not any different saying she has already compiled a report which she will present to parliament for further actions.
“ The Emyooga funds project is full of anomalies and we have supervised and taken note of what is transpiring and we shall share them with parliament,” she said
