Opinion: Supplementary Waste to the State House!

We know President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is someone whose eating of the plate of the government, that is practically his job. The National Resistance Movement (NRM) is praising this as a government tour, where they are even asking local pledges for the upkeep as they did in Moyo Town, where his scheduled later this week. This whole Manifesto Week and continued Tour is an extravagance the Republic cannot manage and was certainly not budget for. As the State House is now asking Parliament for more funds.

The President is asking for Ush. 17,5bn shillings or about $4,6 million USD for this enterprise, where his indulging himself and his comrades in every valley and creek of the Republic. Where the is known steps of typical NRM campaigning of voter tourism, as they pay participants, give them free t-shirts and offers small gifts to participate. Because, he cannot generate crowds out of popularity. They have to be paid and be ferried there.

Just take a look:

State House requested for additional supplementary request Shs 33,282,235,000, the breakdown is as follows: Shs 15,700,000,000 for classified expenditure . Shs 17,582,235,000 for H.E the President’s field operations including accommodation and feeding of the teams that accompanying the President; fuel and other logistical expenditure, by the President during the country wide tours” (ADDENDUM TO THE BUDGET COMMITTEE REPORT ON SUPPLEMENTARY EXPENDITURE SCHEDULE LES NO.1 AND NO.2 FOR 2018/19, May 2019).

That is what the state boils down to the MPs Cecilia Ogwal Atim and Muwanga Kivumbi are loyal subjects professing the pledges and the needs, even signing off on the report. They have no boundaries and no levels of pity. As the NRM and Museveni does to this to show strength and get “endorsed” everywhere.

Of the first part of the report, only 9 out 30 MPs in the Committee signed of to these arrangements, so certainly the popularity of paying these funds to the President wasn’t there. What is special also in the report for this funding, is that the MPs are reasoning out why he needs the funding for the Tour his doing, but none for the Classified, because that is not needed. He can spend that on IPOD Delegation or whatever, because who knows where that money goes. Since its all classified and doesn’t need any recommendation, not even from the lawmakers whose job is to verify and check the accuracy of the needs for this.

I will end with the funniest and most Point Blank statement from the report: “Failure for State House to ensure that the president operates within approved budgets sets a bad precedence”. Just let that sink in, as his most likely getting an added payday by default. Peace.

FDC Campaign Convoy traversed the Gomba and Butambala District; Youth show’s their local craft; Brief look at the Good-Governance-Level in the Gomba District

Buyana, Gomba District

Today the People’s President traversed the districts of Gomba and Butambala. The FDC Campaign convoy went to the districts and had rallies in towns and villages. Meeting the people and also saw the youth’s ability to produce, like they made their own type of gun. Also other activities that a certain Aspirant is having issues with affiliations and not sure if he is Go-Forward or FDC.

As the Youth did in Kanoni in Gomba District and the pictures show their craft as they showed it Dr. Kizza Beisgye!

Butambala District 25.01.2016 FDC Campaign Rally

Butambala MP Aspirant Muwanga Kivumbi known to be Go Foward has faced it rough today as he tried to follow Kizza Besigye everywhere. Kizza Besigye campaigning in Butambala district; FDC supporters in the district kept on reminding him why; why he was a part of the Go-Forward and still tried to be hround Kizza Besigye. FDC has got a flag bearer by the names of Moses Kasule in Butambala!

At one point Kivumbe would plead to Kizza Besigye to tell our supporters to allow him seat on a platform. Besigye was a gentleman and later allowed him to address the audience. At the same time telling that FDC Flag-bearer in the district we’re Kasule. Kivumbi should explain to you where he belongs? Go-Forward or FDC? We know some of his colleagues have decided to move with FDC.

Madu 25.01.2016 FDC Campaign

Pretense before the FDC campaign in Gomba District:
NRM couldn’t help to stifle the local transport and movement for crowds for the FDC in a bitch move. NRM and Mzee invited all the Boda-Boda drivers in Gomba District to come to the Kisozi on the day that FDC happen to have campaigns in the district. So noble of you Yoweri!

I will now go into certain governmental issues in Gomba District as the government issues haven’t always followed procedures for procurement and also done it unaccounted for. So there is questionable behavior from civil servants. Also delayed works in the district and that it still is understaffed. Take a look!

Hiring and signing public contracts unauthorized procurement:
“In eighteen (18) cases representing 36% of the sampled contracts with a total value of UGX 229,699,462/-, the audit team revealed that funds were certified by officers other than the Accounting Officer and without evidence of delegated authority” (PPDA, 2013).

Good Governance in Gomba district:
Unaccounted funds: “An amount of UGX.70,097,792 remained unaccounted for at the time of audit contrary to the regulations. Consequently, I was unable to confirm that the funds were utilized for the intended purposes” (OAG, 2015). Unaccountable advances: “a total of UGX.45,035,492 advanced to staff to execute council activities remained unaccounted by the close of the financial year” (OAG, 2015).

Delayed Staff house at Maddu:
“A contract was awarded to a private firm to construct a 3 unit two bed roomed staff house at Maddu HC IV under phase 1 which included substructure, roof, external walls, windows and external doors, internal walls and partitions, internal doors and internal finishing. The contract price was UGX.50,102,034 of which UGX.27,880,983(46%) had been paid at the time of audit. Although the contract completion date was 16th July 2014, inspection of this project in October 2014 revealed that the structure was not completed” (OAG, 2015).

Understaffed district:
“The District has a staff establishment of 419 positions. However, out of the 419 approved posts, only 256 posts were filled, leaving a balance of 163 posts vacant, representing 39% of the approved posts” (OAG, 2015).

I think that is enough for today. Peace.
