The head of the anti corruption unit at state house Lt Col Edith Nakalema says the fight against corruption is possible and should be supported by all Ugandans of good will.
Speaking to the Nile Post from her offices at the office of the president, “I am ready to work with all the anti corruption agencies including the IGG, DPP and the auditor general to turn around the fight against corruption.” Nakalema insisted
Nakalema who previously worked as an aide to the president before she was sent for training and promoted upon return believes her faith in God will go a long way in shaping her contribution.
Asked about how she will deal with the rot in the investigation machinery of the police and other anti corruption agencies ,she says she will count on the good will of the citizens to volunteer such information
“What I know is that no one will be spared once we have authentic information,” Nakalema argued.
The biggest task for her will be dealing with people she worked with at State House that appears to have a nasty reputation with a lot of accusations of theft pointing to the institution
Nakalema says she has also picked up hear say about rot at state house and she will be more than willing to pull the strings at state house first as an example to the rest insisting all she needs is authentic information from the public
Over the years powerful individuals and big shots in government have been involved in numerous scandals and that will most likely be the hardest challenge for the Nakalema team
Since its inception ,the unit has already received over 7000 cases pointing to the gravity of the vice of corruption in the country.
