Musenero whose courage and confidence stems from the immunity she enjoys from president Museveni told MPs that all the money she lobbied for was well spent on the items she acquired to push the Covid vaccine production project.

Musenero told the inquisitive MPs that she spent some money on buying herds of laboratory rats with each valued at UGX 8m. She says the rats were imported from the Netherlands and that they required specialized care and costly feeding administered by highly trained professionals who also demanded for over UGX 3m per day to do the job.

“The lab rats were very costly. We needed to hire expatriates to handle everything,” Musenero reiterated to the committee. “We are not in the usual politics. Some of you just want to make names and score politically but this is a matter where you shall not achieve much,” she arrogantly added.

Meanwhile, activists have already pounced on the thieving Minister rallying the office of the IGG to sack her.

“I’m asking, these mice that cost $20,000+ in Uganda, what do they feed on? Minced human kidneys or they’re fed on shredded legal tender?,” reacted celebrated rights activist and author Kakwenza Rukirabashaija.
