The Parliamentary Public Accounts Committee (PAC) vice chairman Jack Sabiiti has warned that President Yoweri Museveni may be forced to refund the money spent to take his daughter, Natasha Karugire, to give birth in Germany.

Sabiiti said PAC was waiting for the Auditor General’s report to establish whether the money spend on the controversial trip was included.

“If it is included, he (Museveni) may be forced to refund the money,” Sabiiti said.

Natasha’s trip sparked off controversy, with Samia Bugwe North MP Aggrey Awori, claiming it cost the Exchequer $90,000 (sh180m).

But Museveni said the trip cost only $27,000.

He defended the trip, saying he used personal money to pay the hospital bills and upkeep of Natasha while in Germany.

He said he did this because he did not trust Ugandan doctors “who mix politics with their profession.”

But Sabiiti insisted that Museveni was not justified to treat Natasha as a member of State House because she is “another man’s wife.”

Sabiiti said if Natasha needed financial assistance from the State for treatment, she would have applied through the Medical Board.
