Opinion: Mzee must have angered his donors when seeing the dwindling budget support for FY 2017/2018!
I haven’t been much focused on the budget for 2017/2018 because the more I know, the sadder I be for the citizens of Uganda. Since the revelations of the use of funds and allocations are usually not in sync. The allocations and maladministration is so rampant that the allocated funds are most likely spent on other projects than we’re they was anticipated to be. Either saves a Bank with owners tied to Museveni or to pay for gasoline for his Presidential Jet. Who knows right?
Well, we know that over the past few months and year President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has attacked the hypocrisy and the West for interfering in his democracy. Mr. I-Am-Not-A-Civil-Servant, but I am your President. Since there are some questionable things in Uganda National Budget Framework Paper of December 2016. That are putting numbers for how they see fit for the government use of funds.
|Area||FY 2016/2017||FY 2017/2018|
This numbers says a lot of the usual donor-friendly regime of Museveni, which has been since he was the new-breed of African leaders that was even praised by Bill Clinton during the 1990s. Therefore the revelation that over a year period the donor-funding to direct budget support is scrapped says something. That of 30 Trillion budget of 2017/2018 is only getting meagre sum of 33 billion. That is just a few Presidential Handshakes to loyal cronies an then they are spent!
President Museveni must really angered and made them tired of throwing monies at his regime since they are not as friendly with their taxpayers monies as before. I am sure they have another cause and another country that they are doling their budget aid funds to. Now they are not directed at the NRM or the Mzee who certainly eats more alone. Peace.
