Opinion: Did the Anti-Corruption Unit at the State House overtake the IGG?

Irene Mulyagonja, the fourth Inspector General of General (IGG), who was appointed to this position in 2012. Are now six years later appointed to Courts of Appeals as a judge. A position she used to have since 2008, when she appointed as a High Court judge back-then. Therefore, she’s returning to her field of work after 7 years in “absence”.

What is clear is that the IGG has lost the mantle, haven’t been as focused or had the pivotal role as it could have had. However, that is not her fault. The state has established a new Anti-Corruption Unit in the State House. The IGG, had already competition with the Financial Intelligence Authority (FIA), the Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Authority (PPDA) and the Uganda Investment Authority (UIA). Combined with the Office of the Attorney General (OAG), the Judiciary and the law-enforcement in general. Therefore, in the field of anti-corruption, there is a bit many chefs to compete with.

So, as an IGG she’s become more of a ghost. But that is because, well, the state has funded and created the State House initiative, which have put the others on the back-burner. Not like they have any prominence or reckoning of late. I cannot even remember a substantial report from either of the authorities in ages. That revealed something substantial or even investigated state owned enterprises nor the government tenders. Its been so little or nothing.

With this in mind, maybe it was a gift from the President to appoint her to the Courts of Appeals. So, she can use her skills, her experience and her knowledge to good use. Since it was wasted at the IGG.

We can hope this is greener pastures, maybe even a relief. Since, the hopelessness and the diverted fight against corruption must be boring. When the ones and cases are directed to the State House and not to the other authorities. Even if their mandate, their mission and their government position is more bearing in law and in print, than the one suddenly created last year.

Well, good luck at a new venture Irene Mulyagonja. We have to see who will be the fifth IGG and who will be the ghost in the machine. Because the role of the IGG has diminished with time. We can just wonder, why they bother even having it at this point and time? Peace.

AG Byaruhanga tries to make a bribe into a donation: Per President Order!

Do not act as if you had ten thousand years to throw away. Death stands at your elbow. Be good for something while you live and it is in your power.”Marcus Aurelius

Today, Attorney General William Byaruhanga delivered his Interim Report on the indictment and the criminal charges of Patrick Ho in connection with Minister of Foreign Affairs Sam Kuteesa and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni. This has been known now and if these was just mere charges, than the Chinese National wouldn’t get charged and sentenced in a United States Court.

This is because the Chinese National offered a bribe of 500,000 USD each for a possible Oil Deal for a Chinese Company in Uganda. Therefore, the Chinese National made it possible for the high-ranking officials in the Ugandan government to solicit half-a-million United States Dollars for it. That is why we are here today. This was signed off as a Campaign contribution, but by that time, the President had already been re-elected in 2016. We know this, but has to say all this before I quote the Interim Report. What is special about the case too, is that the government will claim the Foundation owned by Kuteesa, but has anyone seen it outside of a paper and a registered entity outside of Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB), which it was in 2015. That is why today is special, because a ghost entity got good money for a possible business transaction… that would favorable for the repentance, which happens to the Minister and President.

What is also important to state, which is already white-washed in the interim report, is the delivery of the bribe. That went through customs, which was mailed between the Chinese National and the Minister. Who both combined their efforts to send the money and deliver it in cash, in secrecy, as it was intended to a favorable transaction. Not something that was supposed to end up in Court Documents in the United States and incriminate one, while implicating the high-ranking officials in Uganda.

With that in mind.

The quote:

The Foundation received a sum of US$ 499,993 on 9’h May 2016 from a Hong Kong-based NGO known as China Energy Fund Committee. The money was a donation to the Food Security and Energy Sustainability Foundation which Hon. Kutes a and his wife started as a vehicle for enabling Hon. Kutesa to continue to champion some of the causes he had spearheaded during his tenure as the President of the General Assembly of the United Nations with respect to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals”.

While that quote is special and says a lot, it does trying to clear the implicated Minister in the Corruption Scandal that has rocked the man. That the Auditor General did this on direct order from the President. This was to ensure the President and his ally Kuteesa got off the hook. That is why the Foundation and the “donation” we’re the Chinese National had reasons to give there. Like we are naive.

The Foundation is just based on paper. There are no proof of their work or whatever their supposed to do. Certainly, they are servicing some special and unique unicorns, sorry, ghosts. Because, this money came by plane from the United States to Entebbe International Airport, as it entered the Customs as warned to the parties involved.

So, I have a hard time believing the AG in this matter, as he is trying to figure out a way to clear he Minister of his implication, per order as a loyal subject of the President. Who also got money in the transaction done by the Chinese National. They all know this.

Time for the AG get his act together, unless he is a blind soldier for the President. Peace.

Opinion: If this isn’t your war Bosco, maybe you should just retire?

“Why arrest people for being Idle and disorderly, those are colonial tendencies, how do you arrest someone in his country that he is idle and disorderly?”Yoweri Kaguta Museveni (10.12.2018).

Today, was the day of yet another into the bunch of Anti Corruption and Financial Monitoring Authorities within the Republic. This time its a fixed Unit at the State House. That is why it is ironic, that Mr. President doesn’t say it is his fight. That his fight was in the 1980s and not now. That his done with fighting, but are just watching it all. That is not true, as he is usually implicated in it all. If you look thought the scandals, he is either involved or allowing the culprits to get away. That is just the way it is.

That is why I have no faith in a new Unit in a Republic with the IGG, OAG, PPDA, FIA, UPF, The Judiciary and new State House Anti Corruption Unit with a telephone number to call. All of these bodies are supposed to stop it and expose the graft, expose the corruption, however, that is not the wish of the President. Because in the end, that would show his sins. Sins the President is not supposed to have, but does have. We know this and not just mere hearsay. Since there been plenty of scandals since he started his reign in 1986. But hey, will not go into that, because that is doctorate or a book in itself. As the National Resistance Movement (NRM) have been implicated and created it time and time again. There is just new Government Organizations and new names, but the similar scheme, different company tender or another government facility where the culprits close to the President or even himself was eating.

Look:

My war was that of guns and I fought and finished it in Luweero. This war on thieves is yours” (…) “Thieves are there where you are. You see them” (…) “The NAADS people who steal government money; doctors who steal medicine, police officers that solicit bribes, you see all of them. There isn’t any evil that happens down there that you know nothing about” – Yoweri Kaguta Museveni – ‘Corruption is not my war; I fought and Finished Mine in the Bush – Museveni’ 10.12.2018 link: https://chimpreports.com/corruption-is-not-my-war-i-fought-and-finished-mine-in-the-bush-museveni/).

With all of this, Museveni, knows perfectly well. That is why he says stuff like this. Acts the way he does. He is cleaning his hands, while he knows the dirt of his sins will not go off. As he never plans to confess or come clean. That means he will humble himself and show the world his con. The President has lived on the Long-Con.

Therefore, Museveni saying this isn’t his war. Is saying it is not for him to clean up his mess. Which is pretty insulting to all intelligence. As he is the Executive, he is the President and the Government itself. The President could have shown character and been bold, instead he is cleaning his hands or trying to.

The President is trying to fool the public, but ends up fooling himself. As he looks like a schmuck. That is evident with his words combined with years of action. He can blindfold the Movement people and the ones imprinted with his propaganda, but the reality is different.

Bosco can speak hard, but if he cared, he wouldn’t have let all of these activities happening around him or the cronies. All of which is known, but he is thinking the rouse works. However, it doesn’t because people knows it all so perfectly well. That is why people are mocking and playing around with the new Unit. No one believes it.

The President can play around and toy around like King. However, he is still a fool, saying this isn’t his war. Not so strange, when he is the General ordering everyone around and doesn’t want jump on the sword. The President doesn’t want to be credited or charged for the own crimes, but wants fool the rest of world. Even when he has so many authorities to do the job. They cannot do it, because you order them around. We know it, but you will not say it. I have to say it: “You don’t have the heart”.

Secondly, if this isn’t your war, you should retire. As they have to clean up from your mess. Your issues and the chaotic mess you have created. Peace.
