Not a single corruption-related call has been made on the anti-corruption hotline at Uganda Investment Authority (UIA).
According to the UIA chief executive, Jolly Kaguhangire, the nearly one year old telephone number hasn’t received any anti-corruption call.
Kaguhangire said instead other normal investment related queries have been made on the hotline managed by the army.
Anite launched the hotline publicly before the media.
The aim is to enable any investor, potential or actual, facing corrupt demands or redtape, or any aggrieved person, to whistle blow using the hotline.
By not having received a single corruption-related call, the hotline’s relevance and effectiveness is being put into question.
