Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has ordered the arrest and prosecution of former Health Minister Jim Muhwezi and his two deputy ministers at the time. A report implicates them in mismanaging a grant from the Global Fund to Fight Aids, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The fund suspended its grants to Uganda in 2005 after finding the health ministry seriously mismanaged money. In other news, Museveni has accused Kenyan revenue officials of being to blame for a month-long shortage of diesel fuel in Uganda. (BBC)
