Kamukama told the Commission that when petitions concerning land matters reach her office , she usually writes back and directs the relevant ministry to manage , investigate the complaints and at the end write a report back to her.
She testified that Minister Amongi did not heed to these instructions and she went a head to direct payments from the land fund, without reporting back to the office of the President.
Kamukama further told the commission that she believes Minister Amongi is a competent public servant who can assess whether the claim is valid or not, after an investigation.
Kamukama was summoned by the Commission to explain Presidential directives allegedly issued by the President’s office regarding payments from the Land Fund.
The Commission Chair Justice Catherine Bamugemereire suggested to Kamukama that the office of the president shouldn’t wait for the Land Probe Commission’s report and recommendations to deal with such people, who have stolen money from the Land Fund and deprived the rightful beneficiaries of their Compensation.
