Members of the physical infrastructure committee of Parliament received a communication from the Deputy Speaker of the Ugandan Parliament, Thomas Tayebwa, on Thursday, August 24, 2023, asking them to halt further investigations on the digital surveillance car number plates and the legality and existence of Global Security Company.
Kazo County Member of Parliament Dan Atwijukire Kimosho indicated that the members of the committee were informed that investigations should be suspended.
“We received a communication from our chairperson that he had received a letter from the speaker telling him to halt the investigation,” Kimosho said.
According to Hon. Balimwezo Ronald Nsubuga, Member of Parliament for Nakawa East, the committee was also stopped from writing a report on their investigations into the matter.
“We were told to stop the report writing because we were now writing a report in relation to the petition we received, the petition that was referred from KACITA to our committee. So we have received communication to stop and not to go further,” Balimwezo said.
Members of the committee have requested an appointment with the speaker in order to present evidence about this so-called briefcase corporation that is likely to defraud Ugandans, which he agreed to next week.
