Civil Servants Fuelling Corruption in Uganda – President Museveni

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has named Permanent Secretaries, Chief Administrative Officers (CAOs), Town Clerks and Gombolola Chiefs as the main perpetuators of the wide spread corruption in Uganda.

“These are the four people in Uganda who are in charge of government money, personnel, jobs and procurement. So, the corruption which is happening is because of these four and unfortunately, they have let themselves down but we are here. I have your support and that of the freedom fighters and the victims are also there so the three of us, we are going to crush the corrupt,” Museveni told a huge crowd of supprters who turned up at Kololo Independence grounds to celebrate his achievements over the years .

Museveni said corruption is so rampant that he wants to investigate some cases himself including one in Kagadi where District Service Commission is soliciting bribes from poor Ugandans to recruit them for government jobs .

District Service Commissions solicit money from ordinary Ugandans in order to give them jobs, Museveni said adding thus “Actually, I’m going to investigate the case in Kagadi myself. How can such things happen? You [victims] should report and we deal with such people.”

The First Lady and Minister of Education and Sports, Maama Janet Museveni praised God for choosing President Museveni to lead and build Uganda for the last 38 years.

“God has been kind to Uganda because He is the one who determines what happens on earth. He is the creator of life, and He watches over it so He is the one who chose where Uganda has reached and chose Yoweri Museveni to lead and build Uganda,” she noted.

The Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Robinah Nabbanja thanked Ugandans for loving President Museveni, which she said was evident by the high number of people who gathered at Kololo to celebrate his achievements.

The National Resistance Movement Secretary General, Rt. Hon. Richard Todwong thanked President Museveni for his wise leadership that has enabled him to transform Uganda socially and economically.

“We thank you for the stewardship you have given to this country and we pray to God to continue giving you health and strength to see us through. Your Excellency, we are just excited to celebrate and appreciate you today. Your Excellency, we can celebrate you in many ways because everyone in Uganda finds space to do something under your leadership,” Todwong said.
