President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, has mentioned three factors he believes can solve the corruption problem in Uganda.
Museveni made the remarks while opening the 9th Commonwealth Regional Conference for Heads of Anti-Corruption Agencies in Africa at Lake Victoria Serena, Kigo.
“As you steal public resources, you must ask, can you as an individual solve these human problems or sustainably remain prosperous when everyone else is poor? It is not possible. The prosperity of a few cannot be sustainable,” he said.
The president added, “The three key issues therefore to resolve in the corruption fight are; ensuring thorough investigations, enforcing prosecution and getting the courts to dispense immediate justice. The battle against corruption is winnable, we just have to work together to achieve this.”
The meeting has attracted delegates from 16 African countries. It is held under the theme; “Time to Act: Prevent Corruption for Sustainable Development.”
Museveni also implored citizens to join in the fight against corruption.
