Kampala Central MP Hon. Mahammad Nsereko has said President Yoweri Museveni’s nepotism has frustrated the country’s economy.
While appearing on CBS FM, a local radio station on Thursday evening, the Kampala central legislator said this has greatly led to regional imbalance since most of the juicy jobs have been allocated to westerners.
“If I may ask, how many Easterners or Northerners hold top public offices? What’s their ratio to those from the West?” asked Nsereko.
The legislator also noted that those who head NSSF, NWSC, Police, Prisons, Bank of Uganda, ministry of finance are from western Uganda.
“Even operation wealth creation was handed to Museveni’s brother Salim Saleh. We still have a very huge task to play to see that some sense of fairness is implemented.”
Nsereko further said that the rate of nepotism is not only on tribe and race, but it stretches up to religion.
“How many Muslims are on Museveni’s cabinet?” he wondered.
He concluded by calling upon Ugandans advocating for change to understand the concept and make a fundamental change to see that power does not go in the same direction since it may end up not making sense to other regions.
