Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chairperson Hon. Nathan Nandala Mafabi wants judiciary to explain how two flush toilets came to be constructed at a tune of close to 450 million shillings.
Key among these is a lavatory that was constructed on taxpayer’s money at Chief Justice Bart Katureebe’s home for 13 million by Palwan Engineering Works limited.
A similar facility had been discovered at the Entebbe Chief Magistrates court by Platinum Engineering limited a while back at Shs 436m.
Deducting from Auditor General (AG) John Muwanga’s June 2018 report, payments for these two facilities was extended in late March last year and October 25th 2017 respectively.
“If the Chief Justice is staying in an institutional house that means that is how they will do it. I also have a flash toilet at home. At Shs 5m, I should be able to have a toilet,” said Mafabi.
He says the committee will conduct a visit and verify these transactions at a yet to be decided date.
“We need to see the pictures and we shall visit to see that flash toilet of Shs 400m.”
