Ex-Museveni Special Assistant Rwakakamba Returns ‘Irregular’ Salary to President’s Office

Former President Yoweri Museveni’s special assistant on research and information Morrison Rwakakamba has written to the office of the president asking to have his Shs 1.7m May 2017 salary returned to the treasury.

In April, Rwakakamba resigned as Museveni’s assistant and as head of Government Citizen Interaction Centre (GCIC).

However, in a June 01 letter to the secretary of the office of the president and copied to the Auditor General and secretary Public Service Commission, Rwakakamba says his Housing Finance Bank account was credited with a salary on May 31.

“From the moment I handed in my resignation, I ceased to be an employee and also ceased to hold portfolios indicated above with the meaning of article 252 of the Constitution,” he writes.

He now wants the money returned.

“I write to alert you of this anomaly for your urgent rectification and request that you provide me with account details of the office of the president such that I can return the above mentioned amount paid into my account irregularly.”

Here is a copy of Rwakakamba’s letter to the Secretary of the office of the president:
