Uganda’s Topmost Corrupt Politicians as per Anti-Corruption Coalition Uganda (ACCU) – 2010

  1. Amama Mbabazi (Prime Minister)
  2. Yoweri Museveni (President)
  3. Jim Muhwezi (Member of NRM top brass and Former Minister of Health)
  4. Kahinda Otafiire (Justice Minister)
  5. Ezra Suruma (Former Finance Minister)
  6. MD David Jamwa (Former National Social Security Fund Boss)
  7. Mike Mukula (Former State Minister for Health)
  8. John Nasasira (NRM Chief Whip and Former Transport Minister)

This list was compiled at the when sentiments around the NSSF saga were high and it’s likely that taking the hosting of CHOGM into consideration, other people like Sam Kuteesa (Minister of Foreign Affairs) would feature prominently. People like David Jamwa could instead drop off.

    The shameless ethnicisation of the army was one of the things Museveni claimed he was fighting against!

    Now we are right back where we started -trying to dislodge another man in a long line of other men believe that the country and its citizens owe them!

    And not even the fact that previous ethnicisation of the army did not help the previous occupants of state house seems to make him think!

    Why are our leaders doomed to always make the same mistakes over and over again? And why do innocent Ugandans have to always puck up the pieces?

    We got to accept the nation has been hijacked by one ethnic grouping. I wonder what it will take to reverse this?

    Stephen if I might ask, at what stage did you get to realise that Museveni believed in tribalism? I recall as early as 1986 shortly after taking over power it was very evident that NRM was an ethnically based organisation. Some of us saw this long time ago. Do you know that there are people who still believe that ethnicity is not a haul mark of the NRM? And by the way what was the sectarian bill all about, was it that tribalism was so big then that we had to enact a law to curb it? I doubt it was meant to let these guys reward themselves and their Rwandese counterparts who were then holding high ranking positions (ie Fred Rwijema, Paul Kagame etc) with nobody raising a finger.

    ST, on the list of Commissioners of Police, you put two people on No. 19 separated with a Comma. Could you please edit. Nevertheless, I can already see the imbalance. The same does not end in the army. The bug has caught up with police too.

    This is very good and encouraging!! Because members of one region are pegged at the top and the remaining junior officers who do the donkey work are from the other regions, it gives us a lot of hope since, the top has been proven not to effect changes but the bottom in military circles does. Fellow countrymen, there is no cause for alarm, we shall bring this group down easily as the fomulae lies in this set up of theirs with only selected people,pals and loved ones who cant risk a battle since they are eating and hence fear death!!
    Winning a battle of this magnitude starts from the private down and then gets to those commanding the sections!We have them in our hands firmly. Keep getting more on these set ups for our preps and organisation.

    In the army, why do you leave out Lt General Katumba Wamala, Lt-General Moses Ali and Lt-General Jeje Odongo? is it because if you put them there, your message will become distorted?

      good observation Joshua,this data is totally misleading the public and spreading hatred, nationalists pse focuss on issues affecting the common man other than wolokoso that drives us backwards.
      for instance Uganda has more than 5 Maj Generals,etc.What ST did is only pick people from one region in an army of 20,000+ soldiers which is not proper

    the army is not all about whom you’re but instead what you’re AND what you one can do for the country
    try to change your mindset to the bitterness and the good will of our country Uganda
    otherwise that was a good observation if you hand concentrated upon new innovation and creative ideas. Uganda would be a step ahead after the 50th independence celebrations
