It is alleged that she instituted a disciplinary committee which in the eyes of the culprits is so tribalistic.

One of the URSB employee told us that the investigation committee which was put in place, is constituted by members from one region.

‘Those investigated are from one region of this country for example Mwesigwa Silverio, Daniel Nasasira, Denis Birungi, Muliisa Solomon and Tonny Tumukunde who have on several occasions faced a biased committee that has totally had no evidence but instead directed them to gather evidence against themselves which is irrational,’ says the source.

But instead assured us that all these allegations shall not deter the agency in cleaning the mess at the semi-autonomous government agency, established by Act of Parliament in 1998 in Uganda.
