NRM Youth from Wakiso District led by the area youth Chairperson, Andrew Kiryowa and the youth caucus chairperson, Joseph Sewava Mukasa have expressed reservations over Ministers, several of who have performed below standards for the past one year.
This they noted while launching an evaluation and monitoring task force they dubbed Kisanja Hakuna Muchezo Evaluation Team, which is tasked to monitor the appointed ministers, permanent secretaries and RDCs as they execute their functions.
“The Ministers are the key drivers of the economy and progress so we can’t sit back and relax when our president is doing almost all the work yet he appointed a team of other players,” Kiryowa said.
Kiryowa said that most of the Ministers are simply fighting each us and constantly travelling in and out of the country beyond their functions adding that the infighting and intrigue among the ministers has caused disharmony and red tape in government.
“We call upon the president to carry out a reshuffle and eliminate all these languid fellows who are failing our Government and Kisanja Hakuna Muchezo,” Kiryowa noted.
The youths want a blanket reshuffle that spares only 6 ministers namely; Janet Museveni, Frank Tumwebaze, Florence Nakiwala, Katumba Wamala, Ruhakana Rugunda and Godfrey Kiwanda Ssubi who they say have expressed interest to serve Ugandans.
“The president should appoint Ministers who are able and loyal not because they fought, related to him or have too much money,” Sewava said.
“We call upon the General Special Advisor, Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba to be given the task of monitoring the Ministers since he can’t be corrupted; you find that some Ministers bribed their way to cabinet to an extent that the president doesn’t know them.”
