The State House has issued a warning regarding a circulating letter on social media, claiming to be authored by President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda. According to the statement, the letter is confirmed to be forged.

The letter in question questions the actions of the Attorney General, Inspector General of Government, Director of Public Prosecutions, and the NRM caucus for their alleged failure to investigate the reported distribution of over one billion Ugandan shillings as service awards by the Parliamentary Commission. It is reported that MP Mpuuga received 500 million shillings as a service award shortly after assuming the position of Leader of the Opposition, a position he no longer holds.

This “service award” is said to be part of the irregular allocation of 1.7 billion shillings to Parliamentary Commissioners, which reportedly included three back-bench MPs from the ruling NRM Party. Each of these three Commissioners from the NRM allegedly received 400 million shillings.
