Government has appointed a new accounting
officer at the Uganda Embassy in Denmark following the cash scam by mission
officials last month.
Mr Michael Karugaba has been appointed to replace Ms Alex Hope Mukubwa as the new accounting officer.
The decision follows a story published in a daily on August 24, which was based on an audio clip where Ugandan diplomats at the embassy in Denmark held a zoom meeting and discussed a fraudulent scheme to share the embassy money they were not able to spend during the 2019/2020 financial year that ended in June.
Mr. Patrick Mugoya, the permanent secretary at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told this newspaper that Mr Karugaba is expected to start work next week. END
