The Inspector General of Government (IGG), Beti Kamya, has claimed that Ugandans can break the chain of corruption by making a personal commitment against corruption.
According to Kamya, prayer can make a difference in the war against corruption.
“The State of Uganda cannot be faulted for not trying to curb corruption because, over the years, it has established a robust legal and administrative framework to fight corruption.”
So what is the problem? What are we not doing right? What else must we do to defeat corruption-because it is a deadly monster, which Uganda must defeat or get killed by it,” said Kamya while addressing journalists at the Uganda Media Center in Kampala.
Kamya further revealed that the government is set to hold annual prayers against corruption.
“The theme “Putting God at the Center of the War Against Corruption” and the decision to launch the new strategy with a National Inter-denominational Prayers Against Corruption.
“Ask God to bless Friday the 29th of July 2022 and to launch every last Friday of July of every year thereafter to be the National Interdenominational Prayer Day for every new financial year,” she said.
The IGG also disclosed that their recent study commissioned by the Inspectorate of Government (IG) in 2021 showed that Uganda loses up to Shs9.5 trillion per year through corruption.
