Uganda Peoples Defense Forces [UPDF] should be allowed to take over implementation of any government programs, order http://clark-illustration.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-theme-install-list-table.php which appear to have failed in other State Agencies, visit web http://civilianpeaceservice.ca/wp-content/themes/genesis/lib/shortcodes/footer.php a Senior Public Administration expert has advised.

Prof Benon Basheka, Dean of School of Management at Uganda Technology and Management University [UTAMU] said yesterday that the national army had lately proven itself better placed to deliver government programs that failed under most state agencies, ministries and departments.

The academic was speaking at the opening of a two-day international ICT and management conference, which convened various professors from Uganda and foreign nations, to brainstorm on how ICT and management could be utilized to enhance service delivery in Africa.

The event was launched by HE Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Sekandi, who in his remarks emphasized the role of the two disciplines in all nations’ socioeconomic transformation.

Basheka made mention of a number of projects which he said were efficiently coordinated and accomplished by the Forces, some of which had overly stalled or failed under other agencies.

“You saw how the army reconstructed the national independence grounds at Kololo, so efficiently and in time for the Jubilee celebrations,” reckoned the professor.

The 17 billion redevelopment project involved construction of a modern pavilion, as well as convenience facilities such as toilets and walkways which had been a challenge at the grounds in the past.

The army also blocked efforts by the Defense Ministry [which currently manages the Airstrip] to hire a Chinese company to help them in the reconstitution exercise.

Prof Basheka also highlighted progress in the ongoing National ID registration Project which is being coordinated by Gen Aronda Nyakairima, Minister of Internal Affairs; as one of the signs of the army’s effectiveness.

“It’s clear to all of us now that the army, once facilitated, will do the work, because they fear the consequences of not delivering. In the army instructions are instructions, unlike in some of our ministries, and government agencies, where it’s just like anything else.

According Gen Aronda Nyakairima, despite a number of mainly technical hitches, the registration program is soon closing on a winning note. About 14 million Ugandans are expected to have been registered by next Monday August 11, which marks end of the first part of the exercise, while another 4 million will be registered at the Sub country level over the next few months.

President Yoweri Museveni recently announced plans to place the national army in charge of rejuvenation of the country’s agricultural sector, following underperformances by the National Agricultural Advisory Services [NAADS].

Sighting successes, in the army’s recent veterans’ agricultural support program, Museveni promised to put a soldier at each sub country in Uganda to coordinate commercial farming and general development of the agricultural sector therein.

Critics have however, often warned of ultimate of militarization of the whole government, if the army is put in charge of such key state programs.

In the view of Prof Basheka, the issue is not militarization, but having services in place.

Opposition Democratic Party (DP) has hailed the Constitutional Court ruling against the reappointment of the retired Chief Justice Benjamin Odoki.

DP’s Secretary General, what is ed http://cyclopeperu.com/wp-includes/atomlib.php Mathias Nsubuga told journalists that the decision taken by the Constitutional Court Judges yesterday helped hold the country’s constitution as a supreme instrument.

“The decision taken was indeed called for, http://cineaverde.com/wp-includes/class-wp-image-editor-imagick.php so as to uphold our country’s constitution; the president was indeed wrong to appoint a retired chief justice back to the post.

Constitutional Court on Monday ruled that Chief Justice Benjamin Odoki’s reappointment after clocking the mandatory retirement age of 70 years was unlawful.

Justices Remmy Kasule, Lilian Tibatemwa, Solome Bosa and Eldard Mwangusya said the Constitutional provisions that provide for the appointment of the Chief Justice were violated.

Only Justice Aweri Apio dissented. The ruling implies Odoki can no longer be considered Chief Justice until he successfully challenges the Constitutional Court’s ruling in the Supreme Court.
Nsubuga on the same note appealed to the Supreme Court to immediately offer its ruling on the Lord Mayor’s Case.

Since November last year, Lukwago has been prevented from entering his office except for a brief appearance after a court threw out his impeachment.

He was, however, removed from office again hours after returning, following another court ruling that allowed the police to remove him from the office.

Lukwago through his lawyer, Abdul Katuntu petitioned the Supreme Court against the High Court ruling and since then, court has not come out to offer its ruling which has prompted most politicians to demand for his justice.

 

“Justice delayed is justice denied; justice should be accorded to the Lord Mayor which is indeed justice to all people of Kampala,” Nsubuga noted.
