The Deputy Speaker, Anita Among has informed parliament that President Museveni will address the nation on Thursday on issues surrounding the fight against corruption.
”I have been informed by the ministry in charge of ethics that the Head of State will address the country about corruption on Thursday (December 9, 2021). So if you want to hear from him about corruption, you should listen to him on that day,” Among told the House during Tuesday’s plenary session.
The Bukedea Woman MP described various ways in which people are corrupt including legislators. She noted that it’s corruption for parliamentarians to receive salaries and not do their expected work.
The Deputy Speaker further pointed out that it’s the duty of Parliament to support the fight against corruption.
Meanwhile, on this announcement, some people immediately thought it was about the new variant that is in the country. Yesterday, the Ministry of Health informed the public that Uganda has tested 7 people positive for the Omicron variant.
