President Yoweri Museveni has directed anti-graft agencies and the Uganda Revenue Authority to stop recruiting new employees based on qualifications but rather integrity.
He was speaking at the anti-corruption walk which he led from the Constitution Square to Kololo Independence Grounds on Wednesday morning.
The president argued that offices like the Inspectorate of Government and the Statehouse Anti-corruption unit need to have honest people with integrity if the corruption vice is to be defeated.
The president admitted that the country has adequate laws against corruption but implementation has remained the challenged.
He further challenged local leaders to strengthen monitoring and do more to deal with corruption.
The Anti-corruption walk was held under the theme: “A corruption-free Uganda; It starts with me”
