President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has directed the Health and Education Ministries to use the Army Construction Brigade to undertake government construction projects.
In his July 1st, 2021 letter addressed to the Minister of Education and Sports and Minister of Health, Mr. Museveni notes with concern that many government projects are taking too long to be completed due to the length procurement process and other challenges like corruption by some unscrupulous government workers.
For instance, in the financial year 2019/2020, the Ministry of education was expected to construct secondary schools under a World Bank loan project -Inter-Government Fiscal Transfer Program in over 387 sub-counties but to date, the contractors are yet to handover several schools to the government.
At the same Kololo Ceremonial Grounds at the swearing-in of ministers who missed the first ceremony yesterday, Mr. Museveni has called upon those he calls terrorists to surrender because the national security forces will not hesitate to shoot and kill anybody suspected of engaging in subversive acts as long as they try to resist arrest.
This comes less than a week after security forces shot and killed four people suspected to have been involved in the attack on Gen. Katumba Wamala, the Minister of Works, which claimed the life of his daughter and driver. Mr. Museveni speaking…….
The President also ordered security to arrest anybody who spreads fake news on social media alleging that he is dead. END
