The Kabaka of Buganda, Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, has said corruption in the country will not end unless stop its practices of setting up various parallel investigation bodies and committees.
Kabaka said there is need for cultural overhaul in order to end corruption in the country.
“We are tired of that song of of investigations. Action must be seen by responsible actors.We believe that if institutions were left to act independently, theft of public resources would come to an end,” Kabaka Mutebi said in his Christmas message on Sunday, December 23.
Kabaka statement comes months after president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni early December put up new anti corruption body led by Lt. Col Edith Nakalema.
The state house team swung in action early this week and raided Wakiso District Land office and carried out arrests of some of the officers and confiscated some computers.
Kabaka however, urged that this will not be of any impact unless children are taught against the vice at early age.
“Previously, parents taught children how to avoid greed and indeed children grew into good-mannered citizens. But during this era, there is a lot of greed among people and this is why we witness a lot of corruption,” the Kabaka said.
He added that several sectors in the country such as healthcare, education, politics, economy and retarded national growth have broken down due to corruption.
“Politeness and feeling ashamed as we perform national service is critical in a nation where civility is key,” Kabaka said.
