Opinion: Inaction on the White Collar Crimes is killing our Governments…

dilbertcorporateculture2002

I’m tired; I am so tired of these suits getting away with felonies while the Chicken thieves are starving worldwide. The chicken thief does deserve punishment for stealing the neighbour’s chicken; while tailing it by the sidewalk before the Police Officer picked him-up and threw him into the Police car before stalling him in the cell at the Police Station. Still, the one who does bigger work and on paper get rid of the charges at ease it seems.

White Collar Crimes:

White collar crimes, on the other hand, originally referred to those crimes committed by individuals with a higher social status or upper-level occupation that often required them to wear a suit and a white collared shirt. In this day and age, white collar crimes are those crimes which are generally committed in a business setting and are considered to be non-violent. Some people refer to white collar crimes as “paper crimes”. A few examples of white collar crimes include wire fraud, forgery, embezzlement and more” (Henrickson & Sereebutra LLC, 16.11.2012).

With this in mind, with the knowledge at hand; the ones who does this are higher level of corruption, are inside trading and also their networks. If there we’re judgement fair and caring than the ones who stealing the chicken. The Multi-National Corporations with their profits are accepting to try whatever way of not paying taxes and even when courts are judging even against it; they do whatever they can to cast judgement and also expect to run away from it. Like the Apple Corporation who has dodged taxes illegally in Europe, still trying to dodge the payments of excessive taxes to the Republic of Ireland. If it wasn’t Apple Corporation, but McGuiness stealing a beer at Tesco he would pay dearly for the thieving.

So the White-Collar crimes pays off, like all the embezzled funds world-wide, the grand corruption where the culprits are walking sideways and stashing funds in Swiss Accounts and foreign islands Tax-Havens far away from the tax-man and the ombudsman. The proud force of the world and the reality of it all, that the White Collar can release their mind and get off the way they do.

These Suits who knows the Mayors, Governors, Senators, Members of Parliament, Presidents, Foreign Investors and CEOs! They forged arrangement paying fees, setting up shell-companies and securing family members work inside other businesses. Because of these ties between them the implications cannot become public. The Central Government who forged this deals are also on the line with their reputations while they accept this contracts and agreements between the suits who takes advantage of them.

That a Telecommunication Company can get licenses cheaply while running a profitable business in the nation. That they are selling airtime and subscriptions to costumers of the nation, while the state employees are in oblivion of the real deal between the Telecom and the MPs who worked under the President to offer the CELTEL Limited the Operation License in the nation. This is happening and nobody acts on the Suits or the MPs…

Still, they get it easy and get off. I wonder why the businesses that are running the mining operations and mining licenses from foreign lands. These owners of giant businesses are keep exporting Rare-Earth minerals and the Coltan; these companies are nearly in charge of guerrillas that are keeping control of the workforce around the mines. That this is going on and the human rights violations are under the direction of the Suits. They get high profits from the deals and arrangement hold by the guerrillas. They don’t get any slack for doing so, they do it in low profile and certainly where the world sees as the wrong zip-code since his crime doesn’t matter.

The White Collar Crime continues and the world just keeps turning. The International business community keeps doing this and living with it. They are feeding the fume for the fire and nobody is really questioning it hard enough. While the Corporate Media owned by the Conglomerates doesn’t want us to question this world order. Where the money goes and who keeps this upkeep, they don’t want us to be enlightened and be in the dark. That as long as the decisions are happening in the boardrooms as Corporate Trade Secrets and Government doesn’t want their dirty secrets.

The Suits prefer these secrets as with the tax-evasion, the tax-dodging practises and the luminous deals done with nondurables in the Parliaments. This with the stakeholders and liability firms that shelves the properties and fortunes that are squandered away like small-change at the cashier in the Supermarket without any consideration of the implication of these transactions.

It’s time to take this serious, it’s killing society and killing the livelihood of our economies and tax-base with impunity, as the wealthy is getting wealthier and the states are crowd-sourcing more than needed; while the Multi-National Corporations together with the lawyers and board-meetings decide how to trick the money from the expensive and profitable place to the tax-haven. This or making sure the producers and stifle the workers who produce the products as they are wishing to nullify them. This is the reality and the mentality, the ethical and moral conundrum would be to deliver the tax from where you profited and also pay the men and woman decent wage for producing the products. Instead the Corporations try to avoid both and earn a grander margin on each unit they sell. This is all legal, but still should be seen as White Collar Crime!

That is why I ask myself… If we want to get rid of this the investors, the capital of the nations and structure between government and them has to settle in a different way. Because the Government cannot be to connected with the giant businesses, than they will have the ability to deteriorate the levels of governance and the regulations of them.

We have seen that time and time again. The crime of our time is letting this happen and not do anything serious about it. The thieving in the broad daylight and without any concern of the citizens that is not eating of it as they supposed to through the solidarity of the state! Peace.  

On Hon. Nsereko: he is an Imposter of the Yellow, not so “independent” apparently!

nsereko-luuka-09-10-2016

The former National Resistance Movement Member of Parliament in the Buganda Caucus cannot be seen as anything else than a skeleton of political figure after the reason actions by the man. He has been in the 9th Parliament into squabble with his mother-party NRM as he fought against it and even won as NRM Rebel MPs like Hon. Muhammed Nsereko tried to find a new “home”. That ended up sort-of being affiliated with the Forum for Democratic Change as he was running as an “Independent”. Nsereko had to take his rebel case all the way to Uganda’s Supreme Court and won over the State of Uganda there in midst of October 2015. Something that is just a year ago, now!

So after winning a seat in Parliament again, he ran wild on trying to upset the NRM rule of the August House of Parliament with ousting Hon. Jacob Oulanyah, he tried to do what the wifes of Hon. Oulanyah does, without making it apparently because Oulanyah came this time. Hon. Nsereko wanted to be the Deputy Speaker and be the underling of Hon. Rebecca Kadaga.

That was flawed from the get-go as the NRM Machine was working overtime and giving money for new suits and such to bribe the MPs into submission and get the MPs that Mzee trusted to follow the guidelines of his MPs. So Hon. Nsereko who tried with his posing as the Opposition candidate and the man to stand for FDC, DP and UPC to be the man for them to have, as the August House of Parliament deserved his service and his work ethic to keep the Parliament in order. That was something that wasn’t working as the service rendered from the bribed MPs came into order and his candidacy as flawed it could be.

After this and just being an MP and working as normal, even as the wealthy business man, who even these days have proven his wealth. He even showed up on the Independence Celebration of Mzee at Luuka District all smiling with the First Lady Janet Museveni and all of his noble clan of dignitaries. Where they we’re celebrating the independence in the name of greed and glory of the Movement.

So when he did so and when this week started as the man under Buganda Caucus was expecting money the Caucus to silence the Opposition and even trying to persuade the MPs there to go for working for the Ruling Regime. This was happening as an event we’re given directly from the State House 500m shillings. That we’re partly directed by the “Independent” man Hon. Nsereko who had been smiling in Luuka. The proof is right there…

Nsereko 19.05.2016

If you cannot believe it now, it is right there and visible like a the sun is shining. The former NRM Rebel, isn’t really a NRM Rebel as his cash-cow and money hungry soul who owns a parts of Football Club and even apartments’ in Zambia doesn’t’ want to divorce himself from NRM, that is just a play of guards and to look good in public. In reality with all of connections and with the knowledge that you need to know people and grease people to do business; the Hon. Nsereko must use the entire extended network for his personal gain. As he did in the Opposition, something he really wasn’t when you look into it.

So the pictures of his acts, his words against the Defiance and the Jobless Brotherhood another way of seeing that he isn’t really a opposition or wishing to be so. He we’re just there because he rebelled and now he tries to get back into the mother-party and good graces. Therefore smiling with Janet on the Independence Day and acting all sort of giddy while the affiliated with the FDC during the campaigns who he supposed to represented we’re detained, house-arrested and silenced at that moment. Though Nsereko we’re initially running as an “independent” because of his past aggression and misbehaving in Parliament: so this independent candidate isn’t that independent as he now could just become Yellow again if he was honest with himself and his stature; though that is in the mercy of Mzee and his NRM Electoral Commission.

We can now see his true Yellow colours, they are waving as flags in the wind. There are no questions that the rebel isn’t as rebellious as his greed and guts are more important that standards and development. His own personal interests and wealth is more important, just like the monies for cars, expenses and extra engorgements through the Parliament as MP is vastly more peculiar to him than delivering any policy or change that matters for his Buganda Constiuency. Trust me, he will only be a puppet for the NRM machine in this 10th Parliament, that is why he is there, though in fake pretence as a “Independent” because nothing about this man is “independent”. He is currently a stooge under the portfolio of Mzee. Peace!

Hon. Nsereko for Deputy Speaker was flawed from the get-go; we knew the paid NRM MPs would honor their Executive by voting for Hon. Oulanya; and my comments towards the Empty Suits!

Uganda-parliament-2

I am sorry to say this, it’s the spirit of Olara Otunnu that is running through me; the 10th Parliament is running on the same veins as the end of the 9th Parliament. A rigged and well-fueled spirit of the Executive, as the bribes from above high set the standard.

Even Judge Stephen Kavuma, the man behind the decree suspending and abolishing the FDC Party, solemnly swore in Rebecca Kadaga, the loyal bird with feathers for the Executive into Speaker of Parliament, as she speaks and thinks like the Executive. Who knew right?

And you the run for Nsereko is not fair one when the National Resistance Movement even get people like Col. Kulagye to step down for Hon. Oulanyah who has no scruples to gain certain levels of power. As Jacob Oulanyah knows and all who follows knows is that he is elected on ghost votes and not on the local voters as they shunned him.

Hon. Joshua Anywarach wanted to suspend the secret ballot on the Deputy Speaker rally between Oulanyah and Nsereko as then the NRM could check who ate the money fairly and who might not be loyal to the party line under the Executive, though the Speaker Kadaga did not accept that ruling.

That Hon. Oulanyah becoming the Deputy Speaker is not surprising as the money was thrown to the NRM MPs to buy “Suits” and be loyal to the party line, and select the men who the Executive had handpicked for the affair, as he knows that he can control them and their decisions, by throwing pocket-chains while the Executive clears the Bank of Uganda and all other funds for himself. As he keeps the Members of Parliament Ignorant and silence the Opposition… those who don’t believe that ask either FDC or JEEMA about that recently?

Even if Nathan Nandala-Mafabi was a part of the opening of the House and the Parliament, still the Forum for Democratic Change is not in a peaceful place and in a honorable position, while they are either in courts, detained or harassed by the Police Force.

So the news of this today shouldn’t surprise you:

“Only 398 members of 427 MPs have so far registered for the sitting today. Voting delayed as Clerks counter check” (NBS TV Uganda, 19.05.2016).

I am sure 20 of them is either on house-arrest or even detained as we speak, because they surely parts of the few MPs from the FDC that the NRM Regime and their Police Force have silenced as the crackdown on the opposition, that went into high gear in the days running up to the swearing in of Museveni for his seventh term.

NTV Uganda 19.05.2016

“Hon. Rwamirana and UPC’s Hon. Betty Amongin second nomination of Hon. Oulanyah as deputy Speaker of the 10th parliament” (NTV Uganda, 19.05.2016).

While the Uganda People’s Congress, was as expected acting as a NRM branch of token loyalty, something Otunnu 2 years ago spoke about that the NRM had paid several of the leadership to follow Museveni instead of the Party Line, so the historical party have switched from being a one of kind and instead is as loyal to the Executive as the other parts of NRM-O and the NRM CEC. That is sad sight and shows what price the agreement between Hon. Jimmy Akena and his central leadership in the UPC have done with the NRM during the Election. 

Just as the Executive have crashed the opposition, he has also done everything in his power to succumb the Media as he hated the release of the obvious Muhoozi Project that even escalated this week, as he sieged Daily Monitor and shut down the paper for days after a letter was released through the paper and from Gen. Sejusa’s files. People forget that so fast. So yesterday’s announcement should be put into the space:

“President Museveni has appointed former Daily Monitor Managing Editor Don Wanyama as his Presidential Press Secretary replacing Tamale Mirundi” (NBS TV Uganda, 18.05.2016).

Secret Ballot Parliament 19.05.2016

So the Daily Monitor who has been less of an opposition paper and been more in favor of the NRM, shows it’s true face as in the reality they have been shadowed by the regime ever since. So with this in mind, that an opposition like Muhammad Nsereko tries to become Deputy Speaker is flawed, as the UPC and Daily Monitor is not really opposition anymore, you have to fly birds with Chimps Reports. While just let the boggled mind still believe that Andrew Mwenda is think-tank on his own, while sounding the horn of the corruption and his own corrupt mind, that is fitting with the ush. 5M suits of 19th May that gave way to Jacob Oulanyah and his gracious ways.

So my mind went like this while the MPs we’re voting in the Parliament. This is what happen after the secret ballot that even certain MPs was afraid about, since the NRM MPs gotten more money to vote for the candidate that the Executive have decided for them. As Hon. Rebecca Kadaga:  “If everyone has voted I now invite MP Nsereko and MP Oulanyah to nominate atleast 2 agents”.

Deputy Speaker Uganda 19.05.2016

Kadaga and the Parliament are after two hours voting as the Speaker didn’t’ need a vote, since she was unopposed. While the Deputy Speaker between Hon. Oulanyah and Hon. Nsereko. Even as the counting was going on, the Executive wanted to control the voting and tallying as he wants his vision on everything and that has gone stronger with his age, soon he will tell the cooks at the parliament how much bananas they need in the matooki to make it the Western Ugandan way; President Museveni: “I would like to raise a point of order”.

Speaker Kadaga: “No your Excellency. As this happen”.

As they count Daily Monitor recounts the tallying like this:

“CORRECTION: MP’s jeer when Nsereko’s name is read out. Well It is Oulanya, Oulanya, Oulanya and they reply yeeee” (Daily Monitor, 19.05.2016).

Nsereko 19.05.2016

So seems like this set the standard and that Oulanya or Oulanyah is the one to be the deputy speaker in Parliament, as I expected when I woke up this morning and would be the same when I was going back to bed tonight. President, the Executive Museveni had paid the NRM to be his puppets in the house and Parliament and he will continue to pay them to act in his stead in Parliament. It cost to be an empty suit in the Ugandan Parliament first of the verdicts and bought choices of the Executive is 5 Million Shillings and surely give way for Hon. Oulanya.

The results of voting in the Parliament on the Deputy Speaker were this:

Oulanya – 300 Votes,

Nsereko – 115 Votes,

Invalid – 1 Vote.

The one invalid vote must be somebody special, who do you think is the fellow who made the bo-boo in Parliament today?

As the NRM Party wrote seconds after the announcement:

“300 votes cast in favour of Jacob Oulanyah for Dep Speaker of #10thParliament” (NRM Party, 19.05.2016).

Oulanyah 19.05.2016

With this result is there some way that Eng. Badru M. Kiggundu the voting genius can cook this result to a massive result, and make it even more aggressively win in the Parliament, as the Executive believes he should have sanitized the whole of the Parliament.

So my thoughts from this morning was justified, as the Executive had to be there and spread his fear and intimidate the newly selected NRM MPs who doesn’t know his procedures and his rule. In the Parliament in Uganda, you are if you are a NRM Member there, you are a mouthpiece of the President Museveni and not your own mind, just look at Otafiire, did he sound like a wise-man or somebody who thought on his own? The same will be with his new cabinet, where people will work for the Executive, not for the grand state or the progress of Uganda, but to centralize the Power amongst the Executive, nothing else, and the Opposition who is there, is so that he can pin-point at them and smile to the Donors, “We have sort of Multi-Party Democracy, but they got no party in decisions, but they are there, remember give me and my Government money!”.

Enough of the nonsense at Parliament while Dr. Kizza Besigye ferment in Luzira, and is charged with treason, while the Opposition is harassed and treated as criminals, because they stand-up against the Executive and does not follow his mission, sorry vision. To the Executives way to gain wealth for himself and his family that he has worked on over time. Still, I will leave with the statement from the FDC Secretary Harold Kaija as he was freed today after days on days in SID Kireka. Take a look!

Harold Kaija

Harold Kaija’s statement after being released from SID Kirek Prison:

“FREE AT LAST

I want to thank all that stood with me when the Dictator jailed me for 9 days at SID Kireeka for defying Justice Kavuma’s order!

In the Kireeka cells I found Ariho Sam well known in the FDC circles at MUK. He is charged with treason. He inserted my name and that of Michael Kabaziguruka in his statement as one of the people he consulted while starting his activities. I asked him why, he told me he had been beaten. I find this strange!! The truth is that I had not seen him for 7 years. He called me one day and u invited him to office. I told him that our party was only involved in Non Violence Actions.

I want to thank my Brother Hon. Nathan Nandala-Mafabi I made a One Man Protest at the SID offices until I was released yday. He asked to be jailed with me if they didn’t allow him to go with me.

From what we gathered, all FDC cases, the IGP has the final case.

I can’t forget those who didn’t fear to come to Kireeka to visit me. Hon. Mwiru Paul, Hon. Adeke Anna Ebaju, and her sister, Hon. Wafula Oguttu, Hon. Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju, Dr. Odwer, Senior Counsel Rwakafuzi.

Activists Kigongo Ayub, Fred W Mutibwa, Ayub, Kalule Sam, Namutebi, Richard Nyombi Byemalo, Musitwa, the NRM Poor Youth,

My family David, Ruth and Edna.

I also want to thank the Social Media Activists for demanding for my release that one day the Kireeka leadership had to come to my cell at mid night to find out if I was keeping my phone. There was Punic allover the place for two days.

Lastly I thank Ingrid Turinawe and Doreen for the mobilisation.

What I can authoritatively tell u is that we have a lot of support in the forces” (Harold Kajja, 19.05.2016).

That’s enough for now. Peace.

Opinion: Who is really the “Empty Suit”? Who might it be the Empty Suit in the Ministry of Health Care or KCCA? As the recent unfolded operations of maladministration in the public view… henceforth somebody who is just nodding to the Executive for the brown envelope.

The Wire Jimmy McNulty

McNULTY: “West Baltimore is dying and you empty suits are running around to pin some politician’s pelt to the wall. Thought you was real police, brother” (The Wire Season 2, Episode 13).

There is in this day and age lots of appointed government officials, they work supposed to be diligent and with honour of the codes of their work, not work directly for the ones that appointed them. That cannot always be easy as the station and the position would not been opened or given to the person if the appointee didn’t give that extended hand or blessing for the job. When you have that situation you need a strong state and strict regulatory regime that counter the possible backhand and kickbacks to the ones that appointed them.

Why do I discuss this at this point? Because it is a vital part of our government regimes and is a question that can be asked in nearly all parts of the globe. As all jobs in the branches of government does not automatically goes to the most educated, relied on or the one person who has the most integrity in the position. Instead the man or woman who gets appointed is an “empty suit”.

Krugman Boardroom

What some of them might do?

“What typically saves the empty suit is the tenuous relation between what he or she does and any actual business results. This may be a function of the job he’s in: a staff post, with lots of power to nix others’ initiatives but no responsibility to make or sell anything. Or a pocket of avoirdupois in a still-too-fat corporate bureaucracy, the kind of position that causes underlings to scratch their heads and wonder, ”Gee, do we really need all these vice presidents?” Or the empty suit may have come up through a system that rotates fast- trackers through a new job every 18 months, even though the effects of his tenure don’t become evident for two to three years. He hardly had time to get any grounding in the work his people do, and he may have royally screwed up the few decisions he was compelled to make, but when the chickens come home to roost, he has flown. If somebody has the bad taste to try to assign responsibility, the suit can easily fuzz the matter over by suggesting that the blame rests with his successor or former subordinates” (Kiechel, 1989).

There certainly similar like the ones described in our time in every department, every corporation and every single institution we know of. This might be the Electoral Commission of Uganda and the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission of Kenya. As much as the regulatory chairs of the banking industry of Kenya must feel like empty suits these days as the confidence at that is low-key as well. The Chase Bank, The Imperial Bank and National Bank of Kenya have fallen from grace. The most likely selling of the Barclays Bank African Group might also make the fragile banking sector into more disarray as the leading regulators seems like the extra board-members instead of people who uses their position and chair with care and uses the mandate to make a difference and even square.

Soroti Hospital April 2016

The situations are different when the appointed is not hired for their knowledge of their field, but the loyalty of the regime or government that is running in the country. The likes of Ministry of Health in Uganda for the moment where the hospitals are creaking and the machines are criss-crossing between life and death. Electricity and other cases of depleted. As the missing extra blood for surgery, the copy-medication and the loss of necessary equipment; that shows the lack of management and reasons for empty suits. The highest empty suit for the moment must be State Minister for Health Hon. Dr. Chris Baryomunsi who seems to be more concern with catching checks then doing his job at this point. This point comes with the correlation of Minster of Health Hon. Elioda Tumwesige and the State Minister for Primary Health Hon. Sarah Opendi Ochieng. One of the three must generate a valued pay-check and makes sure that the NMS delivers the Global Funded projects and the other government funded health care, but either Chris, Elioda or Sarah, one of them or more must be a hired “empty suit” as the three of them are put into ministerial position working for initially the same thing.

lukwago-musisi

It is just like the same mess with the KCCA where you have KCCA Executive Director of Jennifer Musisi. You have Frank Tumbewaze who is both Minister of the Presidency and Kampala Affairs. Then you have the third person who got a mandate the Presidential Advisor for Kampala affairs Mr. Singh Katongole what he does is surely only him and the Executive of Uganda who knows, since his appointment in December 2015 his silence must mean a envelope and letting Hon. Tumbewaze and Hon. Musisi does what they like. To make it more hectic you have the actual people’s elected through the ballot who supposed to run the Kampala Capital City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago. So you have hon. Musisi, Hon. Tumbewazi, Hon. Katongole and Lord Mayor Lukwago. All of them are supposed to central people in the running of administration and regulate the divisions of Kampala politically and create policies that builds and secure the functions of KCCA. That must be hectic one of these men and woman must be a empty suit. Unless Hon. Katongole who I haven’t heard a word from since appointment is an ear-to-the ground and talking or addressing letters directly to the Executive or Head of State as his role has still not been served. As the accountability of the NRM-Regime is not strong they prefer keeping people in the dark.  Hon. Tumbewaze seems more to be the ones who was appointed to turn opposition Lord Mayor on his knees and therefore also gotten a permanent Executive Director in Musisi to shut down the elected person. But the end-game is that one of them must be an “Empty Suit” as the basic needs cannot be that big, and one of them is catching the brown envelopes without doing anything.

There are certainly more empty suits in the system as I started with the appointed men who is not educated for the position, but are there for the loyalty not because of the office is needed or there for a general purpose. That is the same as extra board-members in a corporation who is hired to vote for the general consensus in the board, but not to generate profits in some sense. They are there because the Corporation and LLC need useful idiots to be paid to follow the remarks of the stakeholders and shareholders, not the common-sense of their position.

Appointment of Nat. Gov. Spokesmen Kenya

We can all question the value of these leaders and honourable men-or-woman in a representative or appointed position by the President for instance. The level of credible men and woman and the need for expertise in the government organisations, into the department and the civic care from the road-development to the health care facilities need men and woman who knows the trade. As long the men does what is needed for the President or for the Stakeholders. The ones that lose are the ordinary person, employee or civil servants as they will either work under them or have to pay them tax-money to keep them. As they have to be paid an envelope to be the empty-dress. The person who is an empty dress doesn’t become that for free. Somebody has to be charge to keep him there. Most likely it is me or you. We can just ask ourselves. Who of the appointed leaders in government is an empty suit? Who in the corporate world are the extras?

Byandala

Lastly, why does the Minister Without Portfolio. Hon. Abraham Byandala gets away and is not questioned by the opposition or anybody else. Why is this man the free-man the invisible creature in the parliament that does not have scruples? This since this position is the epitome of a Empty Suit. He is a MINISTER, but does not have an OFFICE, Department or a MINISTRY to run. Hon. Byandala can do as he pleases and still get paid. You cannot check his ministry or running government portfolio as it is non-existence from the get-go. The Government Official without any oversight and anything to initial control or say in other words the official Minister of Nothing (MoN). Hon. Byandala is running the Ministry of Nothing. The Minister of Hot-Air and the checking the chapattis’ in parliament is fresh enough for Hon. Oulanyah’s taste.

Well, what do you think? Are the somebody you feels are an Empty suit? Somebody you question or wonder if really have anything more than pay-check from the Tax-Payers money, but does not use it’s office or even delivers anything. Then that person might be an empty suit who just nods the head to the Executive and the general leadership without exercising power or determine the future of the government institution, department or ministry. Even if the person is really doing anything in the boardroom or a needed voter for the stakeholders; if it is only the needed majority to follow procedure then the scheme need a check or reform.

River Okikolo FDC 13.01.2016

There will certainly be more stories and the existence of similar men and woman who can be described as “Empty Suits” and be stooges needed by any administration and corporations as they viciously need structure to control the citizens and the policies without questions from the inner-circle. Even if that means not procurement of needed medicines, fuel, transformers or building bridges to easier access the missing Okor Bridge in Kumi District: “This project was intended to connect Nyero and Mukongoro sub-counties in Kumi district” (MoFED, March 2015). A bridge that does not exist or is built by now so the sub-counties is not yet connect because of the altered situation and have to run long roads around the area than crossing straight over the river. So a project like this says there some empty suits as in 2009 as company was hired to build the river, by December 2012 the works by the river had stopped. Even if the departments to UNRA gave reports of progress of the project was last monitored in 2014 and by 2016 there not been done more to build the bridge since the monopoly of the Chinese Contractor have stifled the progression and in the end wasted government funds into a building a bridge who does not exist. Just like the Ministry of Nothing Hon. Byandala.

Think that is enough for today! Peace.
