Kasaija warns against giving government officials unpaid trips on Uganda Airlines

By Deo Waswa

Minister for Finance, Matia Kasaijja has warned the management of Uganda airlines to avoid doing any mistakes that may lead the company to collapse.

Kasaija cited incidents where some government officials may use their position to influence the company to fly them on half payments or on loans.

Once such habits are allowed by the Uganda airlines management, the company will start to operate in debts and eventually collapse.

He has asked them that once such incident happen where any government official want to travel with Uganda airline before paying, the management should immediately inform the ministry of finance and find the solution which will include cutting their salaries.

Kasaija made the remarks while receiving the certificate of air operating license that Uganda airline acquired last Friday to start conducting regional flight.
