Kampala – 7, June 2021: I am not against the new strategy by Gen. Yoweri Museveni to recruit and deploy children of the rich in government agencies, ministries, commissions and authorities (AMCA) to fight corruption.
My belief is that corruption will now skyrocket since the rich love money more than the poor.
Where are the NRM mobilizers who are largely children of the poor but have dedicated their lives and small resources to mobilize for you Mr. President?
In my district, I have never seen a child of the rich mobilizing for you. I am on some WhatsApp groups but it is largely children of the poor spreading your achievements including on Facebook.
I think we need to identify, and deploy tested cadres and competent Ugandans, but also adopt swift mechanisms to combat corruption especially at the top levels.
Thousands of NRM mobilisers are languishing but they love their country. Some are competent and able to work for the good of Uganda.
