Uganda’s corruption is the new AIDS

The case of Samson Bagonza’s jailing for CHOGM corruption  to the tune of Shillings 1.6 billion refers. This would be good if it was applying evenly. However, the authorities seem to be sacrificing small people to give a semblance of fighting coruption while the real culprits laugh with the president. Uganda seems to no longer have a government but rather a catel that plunders the nation wantomly. CHOGM is one case in point where government ministers even built roads to their own homes and labelled them CHOGM projects. There are also the Global Fund millions of dollars assignde for the TB/HIV fight that went missing. All involving top people.

I don’t expect anybody above this man to be prosecuted unless he has greatly fallen out of favour with Museveni. When you look at the CHOGM report and the submissions to parliament, you see that it’s the people close to the president that massively swindled CHOGM funds or diverted them for personal gains. There’s nothing to show for CHOGM just like. SA has alot to show for World Cup. Institutionalised corruption in that country has gone to terrible levels such that if there’s any country in Africa that is worse than Uganda, then that country needs to bewritten off.  Corruption is the new AIDS in Uganda.

Uganda’s case is greatly disturbing. Why should the country continue to have Museveni as a leader when he is sitting over such corruption? He very well knows he is no longer benefiting the country and the best giift he would give it would be to leave the presidency. It is difficult to keep quiet when one sees a beloved country continuously sliding into disrepair – socially, morally, economically and politically – at the hands of a few self-seeking individuals that have little, if any, concern for the country or decent living of other people. Needless to say, indefinate rule and plunder of resources always go hand-in-hand.

It doesn’t look likely that sense and good values will ever return to the current leaders. The cancer is so deep-rooted that there doesn’t seem to be any chemotheraphy capable of allevaiting it. The body is gone.

    Yesterday i bumped into one of the contenders for one of the top NRM party jobs, and he was all tears as he complained how it was such a scandal in the just concluded delegated conference. His bitterness? People are so taken up by selfish accumulation of wealth that the conference almost flopped. His other concern? The President seems stuck with them, which is not helping our party.
