The Ugadan Vice President, Prof. Gilbert Baalibaseka Bukenya has publicly attacked the media over exposinsing his alleged wrong deeds in preparation for the hosting of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (GHOGM) which took place in 2007 in Uganda.
Prof. Bukenya who chaired the cabinet sub committee is accused of flouting public procurement regulations when he authorised Shs. 13.9 billion to construct Munyonyo Commonwealth resort, Shs. 9 billion to procure BMW cars and he used CHOGM funds to grade a road to his hotel in Garuga, a Kampala surbub.
Prof. Bukenya who has been shielded by the Attorney General to keep away from appearing before Parliamentary Public Accounts committee to account for his actions, was forced by his boss (President Museveni) to appear before MPs.
While appearing before MPs on 03rd/05/2010, Bukenya attacked the media whom he described as uneducated and uninformed. "They have been writing ill of me. News papers have accused of hiding" Prof. Bukenya said. Tomorrow they will write: Bukenya was grilled. Can you show me where I have been grilled. Bukenya asked.
MPs warned Bukenya against using unparliamentary language.
