According to the Presidential Special Assistant for Communications, Ms Sarah Kagingo, Mr Museveni made the remarks this afternoon while opening a multibillion market complex at Market Street in Mbale town.

“The corrupt should beware; they are eating beef from a cow with anthrax. We shall find you,” he warned, promising to hunt down all those found embezzling public funds.

Meanwhile, Mr Museveni on arrival in Mbale town, commissioned a water extension project at St. Paul Mbale Senior Secondary School before opening the market, partly funded by a loan from the African Development Bank (AfDB) under the Market and Trade Infrastructure programme, which cost Government Shs 26bn.

He later commissioned Wapa Courts to mark 10 years of the death of former, Speaker James Wapakhabulo.

Addressing a mammoth gathering at the Police Barracks Primary School grounds, President Museveni expressed fond memories of the late Wapakhabulo and spoke glowingly of his choice of wife, Ambassador Angellina Wapakhabulo.

“When you need a stick to support you, you pick it from a good bush. I thank Angellina Wapakhabulo for turning their home into commercial rentals,” he said.

The late James Wapakhabulo attended Dar-es-salaam University with President Museveni.

They were both members of a study group founded to diagnose Africa’s problems and prescribe solutions with a view to liberating Africa and Uganda in particular through struggle for freedom.

“The two were indeed blossom comrades.”
