Government Agencies Merger: Parliamentary Legal Committee Finds Cost Implications Not Well Defined.

The Parliamentary Committee on Legal and Parliamentary Affairs is still in the process of reviewing the rationalization bills submitted for consideration, as the certificate of implication issued by the Ministry of Finance Planning and Economic Development has been deemed inadequate.

A team led by Attorney General Kiryowa Kiwanuka requested additional time to verify the certificate before proceeding with the scrutiny of the bills. Members of Parliament expressed a desire to ascertain the potential cost implications of the agency mergers, including compensation for affected staff members.
