Nabakooba then revealed that the suspension was after the IGG investigation called for an administrative standoff between the Chairperson and other Commissioners.

“In order to restore normality in the short term, I have taken the following steps; I decided to temporarily assume the duties of managing the Commission as we establish the true genesis of the problems,” said Nabakooba in a letter to the President.

Nabakooba also told the President that she asked the Auditor General to carry out a forensic audit of all key transactions by the Commission and submit a report quickly.

“Further, I have requested the Inspector General of Government to carry out an investigation into alleged cases of abuse and misuse of Commission resources,” she said adding that findings of the report will guide the process of restoring order and normal functioning of the Commission.
