In regard to masks, the Budget Monitoring and Accountability Unit in the Ministry of Finance has queried the Shillings 4,946 cost for each procured mask saying that it is expensive and also the absence of witnesses to some contract signing. The Accountability Unit says that the Ministry was allocated Shillings 35 billion to procure and distribute to Ugandans aged above 6 years non-medical masks. Following this allocation, the Health Ministry on 9th July signed contracts worth Shillings 32.5 billion with 16 suppliers to produce 11 million masks but this was later revised to 21.4 million masks at a cost of 57.3 billion.
