Uganda Erroneously Sends $$538,200 to China

Uganda’s finance ministry has asked the Ugandan embassy in China to refund the money sent by mistake to their account, after it emerged they sent almost 10 times more than planned.

The Ugandan Cabinet had approved $61,800 (£47,700) to be sent to China for students in Wuhan, the epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak.

But the education ministry requested $600,000 – a much higher amount. A ministry official is quoted by the Daily Monitor newspaper as saying the money had been approved by the cabinet and sent to China.

The ministry of finance has however disputed this. In a recent letter, it stated that the amount approved by cabinet was the lower amount of $61,800, and has asked the embassy to refund $538,200.
