The parliamentary committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities and State Enterprises has given an ultimatum of two weeks to Kampala Capital City Authority KCCA to recover 151 million shillings.
This after the committee learnt that KCCA executive director Jennifer Musisi authored  a bid acceptance letter to Aqua firm five days to the end of the 2011/12 financial year.
Musisi asked the local firm to submit a performance certificate within 28 days to construct an Aquaculture One-Stop Centre and Fry Project at Komanboga.
However KCCA cancelled the contract due to lack of funds since the money for the same project was returned to the Consolidated Fund.
The firm demanded that KCCA pays it 204million shillings as compensation but it was eventually paid 151 million shillings in 2015 after negotiations.
The Auditor General report for 2012/13 noted that this was wasteful expenditure.
COCASE vice chairperson Anita Among and members including Okupa Elijah and Abraham Byandala asked that the responsible officers at KCCA bear the costs for causing the financial loss.
