The Leader of Oppositio in parliament, Hon Betty Aol Ochan, has called for a special audit for the consolidated funds.
Lop was responding to the National Budget Framework Paper FY 2021-22 and 2025-26, where she stressed that it remains un clear how unspent balances of previous financial years are incorporated into financing of budget of the next financial year.
She said that failure to make this accountability has led to underestimation of the available resource envelope for a given financial year.
She asked government to allocate a bigger percentage of the budget to the productive sectors of the economy and support the private sector in order to increase country’s domestic revenue.
Government in FY 2021/2022 projects to collect shs 21.6 trillion in domestic revenue which is a reduction from shs 21.8 trillion in the current financial year.
