She confirmed to Uganda picks reporter that her ministry has so far disbursed shs83M to him via his bank account as part of his emoluments benefits.
“Am wondering why professor Bukenya has told the media that he has never received any thing from the ministry of public service as far as his benefits are concerned. I want Professors Bukenya to openly come out and tell the public whether he gave us a wrong bank account because we have been depositing 4.6M shillings on a monthly basis” The ministry noted.
She further said that, the ministry doesn’t have funds to procure his vehicle and his housing allowances. “Once we get these funds, we shall be able to fulfill all his benefits but it’s very unfair for professor Bukenya to come out and say that he has never received anything from the ministry of public service” She said.
The minister however said that, she is going to issue a formal statement next week at the floor of parliament regarding Bukenya’s emoluments benefits.
Minister Mbaguta revealed these while responding to professor Bukenya who said that he has never received anything from the ministry of public service as far as emoluments benefits are concerned.
He (Bukenya) said that he was discriminated by the ministry of public service on his benefit.
