The request was successful.

From: Nada Andersen

Dear Office of the Auditor General (OAG),

I would like to request information about whether your office is mandated to audit Umeme Ltd in order to identify their non-compliance with Ugandan tax laws.

Specific issue is their failure to-date to issue Tax Invoices to Yaka customers for their electricity token purchases.

You can contact me for details and evidence.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Nada,

Thank you for your inquiry. Please accept our apologies for the delayed response.

The Office of the Auditor General does not audit UMEME because it is a private Company. However, it audits UEDCL who oversee the activities of UMEME.

The issues of compliance can be addressed by the Electricity Regulatory Authority who are the overall regulators of the sector.

Kind Regards,

Martin C. Abila
