The Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, Robert Kyagulanyi has said President Yoweri Museveni is responsible for the current state of corruption in the country.
Kyagulanyi, commonly known by his stage name Bobi Wine, released a brief statement minutes before Museveni’s pronouncement on the new measures set to fight graft.
According to Kyagulanyi, Museveni created and promoted the vice.
“How can a man who has created and presided over one of the worst corrupt systems talk about fighting corruption?” he asked.
The legislator also asked about the money for different projects that the President casually gives out in cash.
“How can a man, who goes around bribing citizens with sacks of public funds purport to fight corruption?”
Bobi didn’t spare the current development in the United States where an official from Hong Kong has been convicted for allegedly bribing Cameroonian and Ugandan leaders.
Bobi reasoned that corruption has adversely resulted to cases of poor service delivery.
“It is because of that corrupt system that hospitals have no drugs, schools are rotting, the levels of unemployment are sickening, we have no public transport and our nation suffers and bleeds.”
He contended that Museveni has been appointing and promoting officials accused of practicing corruption.
“He has appointed, reappointed, and elevated the corrupt and most compromised people in public office, and protected them.”
The President is today expected to tout his efforts so far in curbing corruption in the country, and to unveil new measures hoped to finally stump it out of the country.
