The public accounts committee yesterday grilled another food supplier who was contracted to supply food items to the Office of the Prime Minister.
Zephaniah Robuk the director of Salgado Eterprises supplied food to the OPM meant for the northern region and was paid more than the amount he was supposed to receive.
The committee chaired by Jinja East municipality MP Paul Mwiru discovered that Robuk was hired to supply beans and maize floor but he was paid much more money than he was supposed to be paid.
Hon Mwiru noted that Robuk received shs352 million for the items that he did not supply.
Mr Robuk however said that he returned the money to the interdicted principle accountant Geoffrey Kazinda but failed to table evidence to the committee that shows that he returned the money.
He said that Kazinda told him to return the money to his office saying that the ministry system had a problem.
On the same development the committee cleared Centenary Bank official Fabian Cassie saying that the bank received the authority to open the said accounts from the permanent secretary Pius Bigirimana.
