Museveni’s new clarifications on corrupt leaders draw assorted reactions

(Last Updated On: 11 April 2023)

President Museveni continues to be vocal weeks after his senior ministers shared iron sheets meant for the poor people of Karamoja sub-region.

Dozens of ministers, including the Vice President, and the Speaker of Parliament have both received the iron sheets despite all of them denying requesting for the roofing sheets.

In his Easter message to Ugandans, read what he said.

As the topic is still fresh and many Ugandans continue to await severe actions from the appointing authority, including what the Court will decide on the remanded Karamoja Affairs minister Goretti Kitutu tomorrow, Museveni seems confident in his systems.

Using Twitter, below are parts of what he wrote on Tuesday.

“The mabaati story was the work of the whistle-blowers and the State House Anti-corruption Unit. I am considering another Anti-corruption Unit in the State House to only deal with Village issues.  The present one has got involved, positively, in broader issues.”

“The issue of corruption is a “must muntamu” -the removing of the snake from the clay cooking pot without breaking the pot. The NRM has handled bigger issues.  That is why Uganda no longer has a refugee problem.”

“Everybody knows that he cannot be falsely accused and even the ones, who are accused, are safe in custody. Therefore, some Game Wardens have failed themselves and become poachers, but the system is working.  All these layers – District Councils, Parliament, Resistance Councils (LCs), and Public Barazas, were put there deliberately by us on account of what we have been witnessing since the colonial times – officials betraying the People.  If one layer does not work, the other one will.”

“This is a political mistake that can also be subversive as you can see from my letter to the Prime Minister. That mistake, however, is totally different from converting those items into personal use. That is no longer just a mistake, but theft,” says Museveni in his response to Peter Kugonza.
