Gov’t hunting out for Emyooga Saboteurs
Government is in the search of crooks who are sabotaging the presidential initiative on wealth and job creation known as “Emyooga”.
The residential City Commissioner (RCC) for Kampala, Hussein Hudu said the government is deeply concerned with people who sabotage the funds and involve in bribery.
“We’re not going to accept these acts of sabotage. As we talk, criminal investigators and intelligence agencies have swung in action”- Hudu said.
He was addressing the place at Uganda Media Center today.
Hussein also explained that some saboteurs have formed ghost SACCOs to be used to swindle the funds and that they are also deducting 10 percent from the beneficiaries of the program.
“I am also looking for some crooks using my office to steal money from the ‘Wanainchi’. I am confident that the police are going to get evidence to sustain criminal charges against them in courts of law”- He warned.
Hussein says the government is still committed in facilitating social economic transformation of households from subsistence to the money economy and the market-oriented production in line with the NRM manifesto.
The Emyooga program was conceived to scale up direct support to communities through establishment of various specialized funds/Myooga-specific Apex SACCOS at constituency level but with operations/branches at parish level.
