President Museveni

By Agency

The first Leader of the opposition under the restored multi-party system in Uganda, Professor Morris Ogenga Latigo has applauded President Museveni for cracking the whip on the recent corruption tendencies in the country.

Recently, the President confirmed to having received reports and evidence of corruption in parliament and at ministries, promising to deal with those implicated. To show his determination, the State House Anti-Corruption Unit led to the arrest of five Members of Parliament currently remanded at Luzira prison.

Relating this to Iddi Amin’s regime, Professor Latigo believes that corruption tendencies can come to an end if the President remains consistent in the fight.

Professor Ogenga also blamed the electorates for voting money instead of competent people who can represent them. Ogenga Latigo also said under Anita Among and Thomas Tayebwa, the Parliament of Uganda operates like a district or lower council.

Speaker Among

Parliament has since early this year been under the spotlight following scandals exposed under the “Parliament Exhibition” campaign. 

This week, reports on social and mainstream media revealed how hundreds of millions of shillings were released from Parliament to procure generators for the private residences of the speaker and her deputy.
