Burora blasts Ssemujju, Nsereko and Sseggona for 'betraying public trust'
Burora says there are black sheep around the voters

The former Deputy Resident City Commissioner (RCC) of Rubaga Division, Herbert Anderson Burora has criticised several legislators he says betrayed public trust and engaged in corrupt activities related to service awards.

Burora's statement specifically names MPs Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda of Kira Municipality, Medard Sseggona of Busiro East, Muhamad Nsereko of Kampala Central, Asuman Basalirwa of Bugiri Municipality, and Abdu Katuntu of Bugweri County.

He accuses them of betraying public trust by defending what he describes as the "looting" of public funds through dubious service awards.

Burora condemns the MPs' appearances on media platforms, where they reportedly defend these awards, arguing that this sets a poor example for the public, especially children.

"Without shame, you boldly appear on media platforms to defend your chief in looting while our children watch, well aware that what you are doing is wrong," Burora said.

He argues that the defense of these awards, included in the budget without proper scrutiny, constitutes budget corruption.

The statement questions the legitimacy of the service awards, asserting that the MPs failed to raise alarms or ensure the awards were justified based on exceptional performance.

Burora challenges the MPs' claims that the awards were legitimate simply because they were included in the budget, suggesting their silence on the issue indicates complicity.

"Dishonorable MPs, how come only you and your ilk, who mock Ugandans, claim to have seen this item in the budget?" Burora asks, implying that their experience should have prompted them to alert their peers and the public about the dubious nature of these awards.

He calls on the MPs to cease their media appearances defending these actions, which he claims contribute to the normalization of corruption.

Additionally, Burora urges media houses to reconsider providing a platform for what he describes as propaganda that legitimizes systemic corruption.

"In the coming days, take leave from the media. The public is now charged and ready to resist and stop your propaganda aimed at legitimising systemised corruption," Burora asserts.
