President Yoweri Museveni has urged the office of the IGG led by Beti Kamya to step up the fight against corruption because the population is fed up with corrupt officials.
“People are fed up with corruption, this is not a difficult job for serious and honest people. Your offices are infiltrated, start by cleaning it up and link with the public to collect vital information,” Museveni said.
The president made these remarks on Wednesday during the swearing-in ceremony for the IGG Beti Olive Namisango Kamya and her deputies Dr. Patricia Achan Okiria and Ms. Ann Twinomugisha Muhairwe at State House Entebbe.
Museveni advised the IGG top leaders to be very patient and connect with local people in order to attain the information they will need in fighting corruption.
“Corruption is like AIDS, it attacks your defense system. Be patient and connect with the people. Don’t frustrate them. The victims and their relatives are reliable allies in the fight against corruption. Link up with them,” Museveni advised.
On her side, Kamya pledged to offer motivational and inspirational leadership and do the very best to ensure that they deliver the mandate entrusted to them.
“We shall pay a lot of attention to prevention and not just running after cases,” Kamya pledged.
President Yoweri Museveni, on July 15, appointed Kamya as the new IGG to replace Justice Irene Mulyagonja, who was appointed as a Court of Appeal justice.
Subsequently, on August 20 this year, Parliament approved Kamya’s appointment as the IGG.
