So where did the money go, M7 questions Emyooga, PDM theft
The President was today afternoon addressing Parliament at a special sitting to address matters on national importance. The sitting was at Kololo Ceremonial Ground in Kampala.
President Yoweri Museveni has told Ugandans that he has been informed of the theft of funds for the Parish Development Model (PDM) and Emyooga.
The President revealed that last Financial Year (FY) Shs131.4bn was released, as per what he read in the PDM reports of the MPs that the Speaker of Parliament Anita Annet Among sent him.
“This Shs131bn is not properly accounted for because each Parish was supposed to get 17m but according to the reports, some got 7m, some got 10m, so where did the other money go?” he wondered.
But don’t worry, we shall get you, the President warned.
The funds were released for government wealth creation programs.
The President revealed that he has started touring and monitoring the PDM and Emyooga initiatives in 18 zones of the Western, Central, Eastern, and Northern sub-regions of Uganda.
As if to exonerate his government and the National Resistance Movement (NRM), the President expressed gladness that the money had been released.
“I am very proud that the NRM has promised and sent the money. For those who eat that money, that money is toxic. They will get problems from it,” he noted.
He told the youth who continue claiming they hear about PDM but don’t see it to blame themselves. He has asked them to go to their Parishes to find out about PDM and also reach out to their area MPs.
