The Inspector General of Government (IGG) Irene Mulyagonja has been sued for a directive she made asking Acting managing director of UBC, Paul Kihika, to return 38 million shillings to the Corporation.

Kihika contends that on August 20, 2012, Mulyagonja wrote to the information and national guidance minister indicating how Kihika was drawing a double salary from both the ministry of gender and that of a substantive Managing Director of UBC. Kihika says the letter is tainted with illegalities.

The IGG’s letter to the information minister accuses Kihika of abusing his power at UBC, including dismissing and recruiting new employees and using the corporation’s fuel for his personal interests.

But through his lawyers of Mutabingwa and Company Advocates, Kihika says that he was never accorded a chance to offer an explanation on all these allegations which is against the principles of natural justice.

 He now wants the High Court to issue a permanent order restraining the information minister from implementing the IGG’s decision.
