Parliament’s
Committee of Statutory and State Enterprises has today (Tuesday) thrown out
officials from the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) after the Tax body
commissioner Doris Akol made a no show.

Committee Chairman and Kawempe South MP Mubarak Munyagwa noted
that Akol was the right person to answer all the queries and so the sitting
wouldn’t commence without her.

The Committee is meeting URA officials over queries in the 2013/2014 auditors
report which among others include the disappearance of 9000 litres of fuel that
were in their custody.

In their first meeting, the MPs discovered that Government lost over Ushs 800
million due to poor storage of seized goods by the Uganda Revenue Authority
like cement and fuel.

The sitting has now been postponed until 7th of next month. On the other hand, Opposition
Chief Whip called for strict punishments for Government officials that snub
committees arguing that sittings cost tax payer’s money and so should be taken
seriously.

According
to information from Uganda Revenue Authority (URA), Doris Akol is currently in
South Africa where she today chaired the
African Tax Administrators Forum Governance & Organizational Council.
