PROBE: How UNRA misappropriated sh4 trillion

President Yoweri Museveni has been handed a 1300 page report after a six-month probe on Uganda National Roads Authority (UNRA) activities by Lady Justice Bamugemereire.

In the report, it was discovered that at least sh4 trillion was misappropriated by the old UNRA structure.

Whereas sh9 trillion was used to construct 1500km of roads in 7 years, the report indicated these funds should have been enough to cover 5147km.

 

In the recommendation by the commission of inquiry, over 90 people (former staff of UNRA) should be prosecuted and assets recovered. Consequently, the resident has ordered the IGG, CIID and AG to bring the culprits to book as soon as possible.

 

According to the Uganda Road Sector organization; “Uganda has a comprehensive road network, currently comprising of National roads (20,000kms), District roads (13,000kms), urban roads (2,800kms) and Community roads (about 30,000kms).”

It further adds that; “UNRA is responsible for the management of approximately 20,000km of National roads of which approximately 3,500 are paved and 16,500km are gravel or earth roads.”
