NAIROBI Kenya May 3 – Auditors General from East Africa on Friday signed an agreement on accountability and management of resources within the region.

They said this will help them audit and enhance productivity in East Africa Institutions. Among the highlighted areas; Lake Victoria Fisheries Organisation, Lake Victoria Basin Commission and Inter University Council of East Africa.

While speaking during the signing held at a Nairobi hotel, Kenya’s Auditor General and the group’s chairman, David Ouko said they will check on improvement and managerial responsibility of the institutions that are under the East African Community.

“This ceremony is to mark the importance of accountability for resources we hold in the East African Community,” Ouko expressed.

He further said that auditing was meant to reflect the true picture of how money and other production resources were being used.

“There are many areas that require improvements and that is why we do not limit our work to auditing accounts.”

He pointed out that the commission was working together in realizing the dream of East Africa, “we are one body despite each country having a representative.”

East Africa is working on strong pillars to achieve the integration realities which are Customs Union, Common Market, Monetary Union and Political Federation.

‘Local governments had provided and continue to provide critical inputs when the Partner States were negotiating the relevant Protocols.’

The East Africa Chairman revealed that the commission is considering welcoming South Sudan while also adding that John Muwanga who is currently the Ugandan representative will take over next year as the Chairman.
