[Uganda] Western Uganda, IDP children.

The Ugandan police are investigating senior government officials accused of corruption in a parliamentary report on privatisation, the semi-official ‘Sunday Vision’ reported. “Parliament has done its part, ours is to investigate whether they contravened the law,” the paper quoted a CID official as saying. Among those mentioned in the select committee’s findings were President Yoweri Museveni’s brother Major-General Salim Saleh, four ministers and two government officials. Minister of State for Privatisation Mathew Rukikaire, criticised for failing to supervise the privatisation process, reportedly resigned on Friday.
