MPs inspect 74km Katosi Road at centre of Shs 24 Billion scam
Government might be forced to pay another 24 billion shillings to bridge a financial gap after the same amount was illegally paid to an individual details of whose connection to the contracted company are still scanty.
Uganda National Roads Authority paid 24 billion shilling to Eutaw an American construction company but none of the directors in the company signed for the money. Apollo Senkeeto, who claims to be an agent for the American firm, single-handedly signed the deal, but the company has since denied that he is its agent. Now MPs want an explanation from UNRA on how such a payment could be made without a reputable director from the firm acknowledging it.
