The Inspectorate of Government (IG) has given National Unity Platform (NUP) president Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, until March 31 to explain whether his recently acquired armored vehicle is a donation or one of his assets.

Addressing journalists and editors during a breakfast meeting on Wednesday, Ms Annet Twine, the director of the Leadership Code at IG, said like all other leaders, Mr Kyagulanyi, who is a political party head and a Member of Parliament, is required under Section 10 of the Leadership Code Act, to declare all his wealth.

“He still has time to make a declaration. Under section 10 of the Leadership Code, when you receive a gift in the course of your duties, you have to declare it. We shall wait until he submits his declaration and see how he explains how he got it,” she said, adding that if it is a donation, there is a provision for him to explain how he came to own it and it can be verified.

Justice George Bamugemereire, the deputy IGG, said they are working closely with Parliament, to expedite the passing of the Leadership Code Tribunal Act Amendment Bill.

Justice Bamugemereire  said they are seeking amendments to the Act to give the IGG powers to prosecute, investigate and handover of cases to the Leadership Code Tribunal for hearing.
