The Bugweri County MP, Abdu Katuntu will continue chairing the Central Bank probe,

This was resolved in a closed door meeting involving the the Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, the Leader of Opposition, Betty Aol Ochan, Deputy Opposition Whip, Harold Muhindo and Shadow Attorney General, Wilfred Niwagaba.

Addressing journalists on Tuesday afternoon, the Leader of Opposition, Betty Aol declined to divulge details of their discussions with the Speaker on the COSASE leadership dispute, saying the speaker would communicate.

Aol however said that a number of options about the matter had been discussed and they zeroed on what was best for the institution of parliament and opposition, which nominates the Chairperson and Vice Chairperson of this Accountability Committee. 


Shadow Attorney General, Wilfred Niwagaba also declined to confirm whether Katuntu's team would continue until 15th February, saying it was the responsibility of the speaker to communicate what was agreed upon.

Kadaga was expected to announce the decision of the meeting in plenary, but it was chaired by her deputy, Jacob Oulanyah.

COSASE hearings were adjourned to Wednesday this week when directors of closed banks are expected to appear to give their side of the story.
