Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies failed to account for 331.2 billion Shillings in the year 2020.
This is revealed in the latest Auditor General’s report for the financial year 2019/2020. The report was on Thursday presented to Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga.
Also queried is the expenditure on undisclosed domestic arrears amounting to 641.3 million Shillings. The audit report categorizes the funds as those relating to domestic arrears payments that had not been disclosed by several agencies.
In his explanation, Muwanga told parliament that this expenditure was irregularly reported as the current year’s expenditure, whereas it relates to previous financial years hence overstating the current financial year’s expenditure.
