Vocal presidential media advisor, Tamale Mirundi, this time round is giving tips on how to steal government money and get away with it.
Tamale was Tuesday morning responding to reports of corruption in the Uganda National Roads Authority on NBS TV.
“Every regime brings its own billionaire thugs,” Tamale said before turning attention to the roads authority that has since set a record as the most scandal-ridden government department.
Tamale, however, warned the thieves at UNRA that their days were numbered.
“The real thieves in UNRA will be ousted one day,” he prophesied.
He explained UNRA’s situation through an analogy of a hunt.
“When a hunter sends out his lead dog and it suddenly returns, that means there is a snake nearby. That is UNRA.”
The president’s dog reminded the thieves that when God decides to “oust a Muslim who ate pork, he will vomit it in the mosque and fellow believers will see him for who he is”.
“We shall know the real thieves in UNRA when the regime changes.”
He further cited the case of the two engineers, Abraham Byandala and John Byabagambi, wondered why they let rot in the roads authority go unchecked.
He said the problem in Africa is that we have a classy society and we are a capitalist society.
For example, Tamale noted, “If you want to steal money in government and get away with it, you have to steal a lot”.
President Yoweri Museveni was forced to set up a commission of inquiry into UNRA scandals.
These include; the Shs 10bn dirty procurement deal for the Kawempe-Kafu-Kiryandogo road; Shs36bn compensation to people owning land in government wetlands and parks on Entebbe road and 9 non-existent kilometres on Hoima road where officials pocketed about Shs29bn etc.
