    The 2012/13 budget session of the Ministry for Justice and Constitutional Affairs debated on the 13th July 2012 was questioned by the opposition over its lavish spending on the Warioba Constitution Review Commission when part of the money could be spent better on poorly paid teachers, doctors and other workers. The Warioba Commission was revealed to be allocated Tshs. 33.94 bn for the financial year 2012/13. Meanwhile, the Ministry for Defence and National Service headed by Minister Shamsi Vuai Nahodha during its presentation of 2012/13 budget on the 16th of July 2012 complained of delays in releasing of funds from the treasury; hence, making it difficult to implement their planned activities. However, one MP thought it is ridiculous for the government to be also complaining rather than getting things done. Another MP agreed that the treasury is comprised of some arrogant officials who are difficult to deal with. The Ministry of Home Affairs, headed by Dr. Emmanuel Nchimbi, made its 2012/13 budget proposal to the parliament on the 17th July 2011. The ministry’s budget was said to be focussed on hiring 3,000 highly qualified police officers, building houses for police officers and prison wardens, repatriating 38,000 refugees to Burundi and improving the National Identification Authority (NIDA).
