Kampala, Uganda | THE BLACK EXAMINER | Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Thomas Tayebwa, has issued guidelines for investigating the mismanagement of the Parish Development Model (PDM). This announcement was made during the parliamentary session’s resumption following a recess in which Members of Parliament had been monitoring the performance of government programs in their respective constituencies, including PDM and others.

Tayebwa explained that he had received numerous complaints from both MPs and PDM beneficiaries, citing instances of bribery and other unlawful practices that occurred before individuals could access PDM funds.

In response, Tayebwa directed MPs, organized under their regional caucus, to collect and compile their observations and findings concerning PDM. These findings are to be submitted to the parliamentary committee on Local Government for further investigation. Subsequently, a report will be presented to Parliament for appropriate action.

The committee has been granted a three-week timeline to complete its investigations.

In the previous month, Speaker of Parliament Anita Among had sent MPs on recess with the directive to monitor and evaluate the progress of government initiatives such as PDM and Emyooga.
