The leader  of opposition in the Uganda parliament, Mr Nandala Mafabi and the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) deputy leader Mrs Salaamu Musumba have accused Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni ofstealing money from the country’s central bank and using it as a commercial bank from which he can withdraw money at any time without referring to parliament.

In an exclusive interview with The London Evening Post here in London, Mr Mafabi and Mrs Musumba said on several occasions they have watched in horror and utter disgust as the country’s leader helped himself to the coffers of the central bank to pay for the purchase of things without referring such purchases to the scrutiny of parliament. The latest of these, they said, was the recent purchase of six military fighter jets at a cost of US$740million; money that they said President Museveni received by simply approaching the Bank of Uganda and demanding to be given the cash.

The FDC leaders were in London last week along with the President General of the Uganda Conservative Party Mr Ken Lukyamuzi MP, to take part in a convention on the federal system of government which was hosted by the Uganda Federal Confederates (UFC) at the University of East London, Docklands.

Until recently the Chairman of the powerful Uganda parliamentary Finance Committee, Mr Mafabi said Britain and her citizens should be concerned that aid money being given to Uganda was being diverted to less important projects that are the whims of the Ugandan leader. “They should be concerned that the Ugandan leader has used US$740 out of the aid money Britain is sending to Uganda to buy aircraft not necessarily needed in Uganda at this time,” he said.
