An internal inquiry says the United Nations refugee agency has misspent millions of dollars on Africa's largest refugee crisis, including paying for what became a parking lot at the Ugandan prime minister's office.
The report by the UN's internal watchdog says about USD 11 million alone is being spent on a recount of the South Sudanese who poured into Uganda, to weed out potentially hundreds of thousands of "ghost refugees".
More than a million South Sudanese fled to neighbouring Uganda after fresh fighting broke out in July 2016, causing a scramble by the UN and other humanitarian actors to help them find food and shelter.
UN refugee and Ugandan spokespersons did not immediately comment.
