Prime Minister Cautions Cabinet on Red Tape

Dr. David Living Stone Ruhakana Rugunda has cautioned the new political and technical staff at the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) to avoid the long processes and bureaucracy that could stand in the way of fast tracking service delivery.

Rugunda sounded the caution while presiding over the handover ceremony for new Ministers and State Ministers serving under the office of the prime minister on Friday June 24th.

“The political team and the technical team must know that we are serving the same goal of transforming the lives of our people. The business of following up paperwork for weeks must end, for sale ” said Rugunda.

The Prime Minister who was taking office for the second term said that the duties of the OPM are well cut as was stipulated by the president during the swearing-in ceremony.

“We heard from the President yesterday about what we must do to achieve the priorities of Government of leading Uganda to middle income status through timely delivery of quality services to the wanainchi. The people are impatient for services, stuff ” he said.

Rugunda lauded the outgoing leaders for the achievements registered during their time working under the OPM asking the new team to work to consolidate the same.

The function was attended by the first lady Janet Kataaha Museveni, the new Minister of Education and Sports who formerly worked under the OPM as the Minister for Karamoja Affairs.

Mrs. Museveni was handing over to Eng. John Byabagambi who is the new minister for Karamoja.
