Youths Decries Alleged Rampant Corruption in Parliament, Seek Museveni’s Intervention

0

Youth Activists have decried what they called rampant Corruption at Parliament.

Under their umbrella body, the Youth leaders Coalition for A Better Uganda (YLCBU) has called upon president Museveni to investigate the entire Parliament, especially its leadership for what they called massive corruption.

These say that since Parliament is the one investigating some corrupt cases, the youths say this has made them “untouchable” calling for the need for immediate action against them by the president.

“We have many pertinent issues affecting Ugandans but to our dismay, Parliament is not as focused on less important issues,” AKampa Tanbull, the National Coordinator, of YLCBU told reporters on Friday.

Some of these areas he said are; health, local content, and employment, which the Parliament has deliberately chosen to ignore.

“The Buhonda Health Centre in Bugiri district is in story state but our Parliament is busy passing bedroom laws, why don’t they use the same speed they used here to pass laws on issues affecting our people,” he said.

Akampa reiterated his earlier demand for the resignation of Speaker Anita Among since she has failed to do her work diligently.

The Coalition binds together youths from different Political parties including; the National Unity Platform(NUP), National Resistance Movement(NRM), Democratic Party(DP), and Forum For Democratic Change(FDC).

“We have seen Ministers diverting Iron sheets meant for vulnerable people of Karamoja, our MPs in opposition have also chosen to dine with corruption, our country is going into a lost direction,” he added.

Corruption, he said is worse than Homosexuality and this Parliament has now become a theatre of deal-makers instead of legislating on issues that affect common Ugandans, like unemployment, Corruption, lack of drugs in health centers, poorly facilitated UPE schools, and poor roads.

“Parliament is busy swimming in scandal after scandal and now they have no moral authority to even make government account or even Parliament is too vulnerable to Play its oversight role, they are instead discussing bedroom issues,” he said
