Apathy causing Corruption – Minister

The ethics and integrity minister, Rev. Ft. Hon. Simon Lokodo attributes the current corruption acts in the country to apathy among citizens and urges them to denounce the act. Lokodo adds that moral decadency among Ugandans had also taken center stage causing disinterest among Ugandans to fight the vice that has continued to eat up the country. It is upon this matter that the ethics minister now reveals that government is doing all that it can to set up tough laws and agencies to combat the vice.
He further mentions that its only the petty offences of graft that are reported and huge cases are sometimes left out noting that with the setting up of new regulations, this has scaled down as now big corruption cases are also reported and handled.
Uganda being a signatory to the UN anti corruption concession, will on the 2nd of this month be joining the rest of the world to mark the global anti corruption week with a series of activities lined up.
