DEFENCE is holding a donors’ meeting today in a bid to raise sh90b for the Defence Review Programme.

A source said the meeting was called following a disagreement last week by permanent secretaries over the proposed deduction of ministries’ budgetary allocations to fund the programme.

A meeting of permanent secretaries held last week at the Ministry of Finance headquarters under the chairmanship of the Secretary to the Treasury, Chris Kassami, failed to reach an agreement.

The source said the Government might be forced to cut ministries’ budgetary allocations so as to raise the additional sh90b urgently needed by the ministry if the donors fail to accommodate the bill.
