Minister of Finance Matia Kasaija has been summoned to Parliament over the deputy governor vacancy that is believed to be causing a crisis at Bank of Uganda.
Igara East Legislator Micheal Mawanda requested the Speaker to summon Mr. Kasaija so that he can explain why the reported crisis at the Bank of Uganda following Mr. Kasekende’s exit.
Mawanda noted that there is bound to be a crisis at Uganda’s central bank since the Governor is now juggling two roles that of the Governor and deputy governor.
Kasekende quit Bank of Uganda after his contract expired last month expressing profound gratitude to the appointing authority for having granted him the opportunity.
In an interview, Kasaija had earlier revealed that he had written to the President about the impending expiry of the contracts for the Governor and his deputy however the President did not pronounce himself on the matter.
The Speaker was yesterday prompted to summon Mr. Kasaija to Parliament on Thursday to explain measures being taken by his ministry to have the deputy Governor vacancy filled with urgency as a matter of national importance.
