Published

on

Ugandan authorities will investigate claims that foreign minister, Sam Kutesa took a bribe of $500,000 from a Chinese official, the country’s president said on Monday.

President Yoweri Museveni, who was launching new initiatives to tackle corruption in Uganda, said the minister had explained that the money was donated to a charity he runs, rather than to him as an individual.

Chi Ping Patrick Ho, a former Hong Kong government official, was last week found guilty of bribing Kutesa and Chad’s president Idriss Deby, in exchange for contracts for a Chinese energy company.



‘‘I have told him to get in touch with the Attorney General, who will cross check if this money was indeed for charity as he said, or if it was for him,’‘ the president said when asked about Ho’s conviction.

‘‘Obviously, it is a crime for him to get money from a foreign company. What for? That would be a bribe and he would be answerable.’‘
