The first lady Janet Museveni also minister for Karamoja Affairs says she is ready to appear before the Public Accounts Committee of Parliament.

The committee is currently investigating the mismanagement of the PRDP funds in the office of the prime minister.

This comes after members of this committee disagreed on whether or not she should appear.

The first lady, who was scheduled to appear before the committee today, has written to the MPs requesting them to reschedule the meeting for another date after February 15th because she has been on leave.

The committee chairperson Paul Mwiru says that they were also meant to meet with the Prime Minister but failed after receiving communication from his office that he was out of the country.

He says that the committee has now agreed reschedule their meetings with the two officials.
