The Committee on defence questions army officials over diversion of 21 billion

The defence Committee on 6th April 2021 questioned army officials including minister of defence and veteran affairs Mr. Adolf Mwesigye.

The diverted funds were part of the current budget that was approved by Parliament.

The Committee raised concerns that instead of repairing the three aircraft belonging to Uganda air Cargo corporation that is under the army, the army leadership paid annual aircraft insurance, trained eight personnel, participated in UPDF/Amisom troop rotation in Somalia and procured spares for one aircraft.
