THE controversial company, Heritage Foundation, hitherto associated with the Movement Secretariat, belongs to individuals including Cabinet ministers, Eriya Kategaya and James Wapakhabulo.
This was yesterday revealed by Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) officials who presented the Heritage Foundation company profile to the parliamentary committee on commissions, statutory authorities and state enterprises.
Kategaya is the First Deputy Premier and internal affairs minister, while Wapakhabulo is the Third deputy premier and foreign minister.
According to the registrar of companies, other directors are the Movement Vice-chairman, Moses Kigongo, and former premier Kintu Musoke.
Others are Movement top officials Margaret Oguli, George Abola and Kampala Woman MP Margaret Zziwa.
The revelation followed a question by Aggrey Awori (Samia Bugwe North) on why URA had contracted a company owned by the Movement Secretariat, which is part of government.
The committee also queried the award of the contract to manage the Nakawa Inland Port to Heritage Foundation without competitive bidding.
“The contract award was on the basis of expertise in the management of inland ports, but what expertise do these people have?” Elijah Okupa (Kasilo), who chaired the session asked. The URA 17-man team was lead by deputy commissioner general Stephen Akabway. Ends
