Inspector General of Government Irene Mulyagonja has agreed to initiate investigations to establish whether or not some members of parliament were given bribes to push a constitutional amendment bill to remove presidential age limit from the constitution.

Mulyagonja promised to look into the said MPs on the request of a group of youths under the infamous Jobless Brotherhood pressure group.

The youths this morning stormed the IGG’s office with a petition in which they claimed that some NRM MPs had been paid hundreds of millions of shillings to support the amendment of Article 102(b) of the constitution.

Among the MPs listed by the youths are Hon Peter Ogwang (Usuk County), Evelyn Anite (Koboko Municipality), Ibrahim Abiriga (Arua) Semeo Nsubuga (Kasanda) as well as Hon Rosemary Seninde (Wakiso).

These and others according to the Jobless Brotherhood, received up to Shs 800million each to support the bill.

IGG Irene Mulyagonja while meeting the youths in her office in Kampala, promised to allocate a team to initiate investigations into the said MPs, by way of looking into their bank accounts and earnings.

She said however, that the investigations would not kick off immediately, because her officers are currently occupied with other equally important cases.

“We have now about 200 other cases which our investigators are handling; but we shall be sure to add this case onto them” she said.

The Jobless Brotherhood had requested for weekly updates from the Inspectorate on the progress of the investigations, but Mulyagonja said that would not be possible.

She asked the youths to let her office handle their case in the way it does with others.
