    in summary
    Three MPs, Yusuf Mutembuli, Cissy Donanzio Namujju, and Paul Akamba, are being questioned at the CID headquarters over corruption allegations related to their roles in key parliamentary committees and dealings with the Ministry of Finance. This investigation follows President Musevenis recent revelation of a corrupt syndicate involving lawmakers and finance officials.

    Three Members of Parliament are currently recording statements at the Criminal Investigation Directorate (CID) headquarters in Kibuli, as part of a broad investigation into corruption involving lawmakers chairing key committees and senior officials at the Ministry of Finance.

    The MPs, Yusuf Mutembuli, Cissy Donanzio Namujju, and Paul Akamba, have honored summons to appear this Monday morning to answer corruption-related queries.Yusuf Mutembuli, the vice chairperson of the Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee and MP for Bunyole East in Buteleja District, along with Lwengo Woman MP Cissy Donanzio Namujju and Busiki County MP Paul Akamba, are being questioned over their involvement in alleged corrupt practices.

    A close associate of one of the MPs confirmed,

    "They honored summons and as we speak, they are being grilled by detectives."

    Despite the MPs’ presence at CID headquarters, Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga stated that the police could not confirm the summoning of any officials from the Ministry of Finance or Parliament.

    "As police, we have not confirmed summoning any officials from the Ministry of Finance or Parliament," Enanga told the press,

    This statement, however, contradicts reports from the MPs' relatives, friends, and other sources confirming their interrogation.

    The investigation centers around the MPs' roles in the Budget Committee of Parliament, where they previously served. One legislator is alleged to have engaged in underhand dealings with Kenyans during the processing of the Petroleum Supplies Amendment Bill in November 2023.

    Another MP is accused of collecting substantial sums of money from various agencies while serving on the Budget Committee.

    This legislator reportedly purchased an expensive SUV with a personalized number plate and has undertaken significant construction projects. There are also claims that the same legislator intended to buy a property in the U.S. for $3 million.

    The summons followed President Yoweri Museveni’s revelation during his State of the Nation Address last week. The President claimed to have evidence of a corrupt syndicate involving individuals from the Ministry of Finance and Parliament.

    "I have evidence on the corrupt syndicate from the Ministry of Finance to Parliament," Museveni asserted,

    Underscoring the government's commitment to tackling corruption at all levels.This investigation marks a significant step in addressing corruption within Uganda's political and financial sectors.

    The ongoing probe aims to ensure accountability and restore public trust in the nation's legislative processes. The outcome of these interrogations could lead to substantial reforms and stricter measures to combat corruption in Uganda.
