Retaining Corrupt Public Servants In Service Making Corruption Feel At Home

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Joel Senyonyi started with a blast when he lay the quakes on air Uganda. Betty Kamya looked poised for applause as IGG came to life and scandals began to be uncovered. But when nothing happens after the verdict. It’s like dancing with the joker who makes bad jokes on everyone and imagines they are funny.

Ugandan continue to wonder whether Jennifer Bamuturaki was even guilty in the first place or she would not be still riding her horse.

The OPM And Ministry of Science and Technology Covid soap opera is not out of mind yet out of sight. And the Ministry of Karamoja Affairs bump created heckles and nothing more.

NSSF, Ministry of Trade and Cooperatives. And more scandals. Committed by red blooded, toilet flushing people, but with no deterrent reprimand to ensure it never happens again.

In all these incidents the corrupt remain paid by taxpayers money and even awaiting their next promotion or designation in public service. IGG and the DPP show these people can be ordered to pay back. Again these are thieves still in office being told to pay back. Imagine the next step.

Internationally, there have been cases of corruption and the best deterrent measure is to enforce the rule. Hence the resignation of leaders like Vietnam’s President Nguyen Xuan Phuc’s who tendered his resignation and Eduard Heger Prime Minister of Slovakia, who did the same.


In the past Uganda had similar incidents and in this case history should repeat itself. In 2011 Sam Kutesa, chief whip John Nasasira and junior labour minister Mwesigwa Rukutana stepped out of office to clear their names, in response to their names coming up in the Commonwealth summit scandal.

The rule ought to indicate that if any public official is proved corrupt they should step down and never be employed in public service again.
