Parliament's appointments committee has given its nod of approval to appoint Edward Akol as the new auditor general.

Sources in the committee chaired by speaker of parliament, Annet Anita Among indicate that the MPs overwhelmingly approved Akol's appointment.

Akol is set to replace Uganda’s longest-serving auditor general John Muwanga who has been in office since 2001. He is retiring from office having clocked the mandatory retirement age.

The office of the auditor general is the supreme audit institution of Uganda, mandated by the Constitution to produce reliable and high-quality reports.

It is supposed to ensure the promotion of good governance, transparency, and effective accountability in the management and use of public resources.

Akol has risen through the ranks at the office of the auditor general since August 1994 to earn himself President Yoweri Museveni's appointment to head the institution. He has served as the director of audit and assistant auditor general in charge of audit.

The committee also vetted Linda Lillian Mugisha Tumusiime and Anthony Patrick Wabwire for their appointments as judges.

Ugandans, please, DO NOT go for next useless parliamentary election to ensure the useless mps get payed for laughing at you!

Have mps ensured constituencies are developed; good schools/roads/houses with clean water/electricity?

Have mps ensured Education is priority so that Ugandans have a beginning to real development?

Ugandans, why ensure you are ignored for good officially, legally, constitutionally, while the useless mps are payed?

Why will 40 years of Rwandese Museveni not be long enough?
