Vice President Gilbert Bukenya and other ministers on the Chogm Cabinet sub-committee “deceived” President Museveni in the controversial decision to lease cars for the summit, MPs said yesterday.
Prof. Bukenya told MPs on the Public Accounts Committee that he was “obsessed” with leasing, rather than buying, cars to transport delegates during the November 2007 Commonwealth Summit (Chogm).

“I was obsessed with outright leasing of the Chogm vehicles,” Prof Bukenya said. “We stopped international bidding process because there was no money and I got a big warning that outright purchase would [have] taken us eight months to deliver the cars here yet time was running out.”
