Museveni Tells Civil Servants To Eradicate Corruption

President Museveni

By Agency

President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has urged public servants to eradicate corruption and cease working in cliques, emphasizing that these vices hinder citizen inclusiveness in policy implementation and thereby impede economic growth.

Speaking at the 13th Africa Public Service Day 2024 held at Kololo Independence Ceremonial Grounds, Museveni stressed that no state or country can develop, grow, or transform without the stabilizing influence of the security sector.

He challenged public servants to deepen their roots and achieve more in service delivery, emphasizing the need to eliminate corruption, increase and accelerate the speed of service delivery at the grassroots level, and build partnerships with stakeholders worldwide.

The Africa Public Service Day 2024 was being held under the theme “Empowering a Citizen Centric Public Service for an Inclusive and Thriving 21st Century Africa; a Journey of Lifelong Learning and Transformation”

Museveni appealed to civil servants to reduce barriers to poor people accessing their services, enhance discovery and participation, and strengthen their voices.

He also urged them to move resources to the community level from the center expeditiously and implement the one-stop center concept, automating their services and reviewing business processes regularly to capture new trends.

According to Public Service Permanent Secretary  Catherine Bitarakwate Musingwire, Public Service Day is commemorated by African Union member states as a biennial event recognizing that democracy and good governance are built on a foundation of a competent civil service.
