Kabale RDC urges public to join fight against corruption


Godfrey Nyakahuma, the Kabale Resident District Commissioner, has urged the public not to point fingers but to join forces in the battle against corruption in the country and throughout Africa.

Nyakahuma made these statements on Friday while speaking at a one-day workshop for Kigezi area religious leaders at the Erijah Hotel in Kabale municipality’s southern division, which was arranged by the president’s office under ethics and integrity in the fight against corruption.

According to Nyakahuma, corruption in Uganda is ramping up and becoming more digitalized, and if it does not become an individual problem, it would undermine not only service delivery in communities but also national security.

He also expressed concern that leaders have failed to lead by example in combating this vice, instead promoting it, and he urged all stakeholders, including church and political leaders, to preach on the corruption vice because Uganda is losing a lot of money in corruption scandals, money that could have been used to deliver services to community members, and he urged the public to never play games but to be annoyed.
