Anger has been brewing on social media all day following reports that Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) boss Godfrey Mutabazi blew Shs3bn on foreign trips.

According to the state-run New Vision, Mutabazi spent Shs605.7m between April 2012 and September 2015.

UCC also reportedly released Shs80.5m to Mutabazi to travel to three destinations on the same day of September 1, 2015 [one ticket cost Shs20.9m, another Shs29.5m and another at Shs29.7m].

There was also a whooping shs101.5m ticket for Mutabazi to travel to Kigali in Rwanda, Harare in Zimbabwe and Dakar in Senegal.

A #‎TravelLikeMutabazi hashtag has been trending as social media enthusiasts question how the regulator managed to blow all that cash on unclear travel expenses.

In response, UCC tweeted with the hashtag showing one of the events Mutabazi attended abroad saying it is one of the “benefits” of “travelling like Mutabazi”.
