The Uganda National Roads Authority returned 226 billion shillings (USD100 million) to the nation’s treasury after failing to allocate the money meant for repairing national roads, The Monitor reports.

    The move was “unacceptable,” Public Accounts Committee chairman Nandala Mafabi said.

    “They told us that they lacked capacity to use the money. We cannot tolerate incompetence when our people are suffering with potholes. This is unacceptable,” he said.
