The General Post Office Building in Kampala became chaotic on Monday as hundreds of applicants lined up in long queues with no service provided by the Directorate of Immigration. The situation was aggravated by the inadequate space at the General Post Office.
Parliament's Public Accounts Committee (PAC) chaired by Serere Woman MP Alice Alaso failed to get convincing explanations from the directorate's accounting officer Godfrey Sassaga over numerous audit queries for financial year 2012/2013. Sassaga failed to adduce documentary evidence on how he spent seven billion shillings received as Non Tax revenue (NTR).
The Ministry of Internal Affairs spokesperson, Pamela Ankunda explains that the directorate of Citizenship and Immigration control is already testing equipment at the National ID registration Secretariat at Kololo airstrip.The equipment being tested includes cameras, laptops, spare batteries, finger print readers, scanners and generators.
