    President Museveni says Uganda has “so many thieves” who have frustrated government programmes that should have benefitted its citizens. Mr Museveni made the remarks after participating in Rwanda’s monthly community work programme (Umuganda) on Saturday at Kanombe in Kigali.

    Speaking to Rwandans and other guests who had also come to participate in the Umuganda exercise at Nyarugunga Primary School, Mr Museveni said similar programmes had existed in Uganda, with some of them being carried out by the army.

    Umuganda concept
    “This Umuganda, we have been doing it but it is not like here,” he said. “But if the military does it alone, what will civilians do? But this is a very good idea and this one will help our annual budget,” he said.

    However, Mr Museveni, who spoke a mixture of Kiswahili, Runyankole and Kinyarwanda, decried the commercialisation of such programmes, saying they had failed because they were hijacked by individuals fleecing ordinary Ugandans.
    “I have been fighting with these thieves because they had spoilt this issue of Umuganda. You know Uganda has so many thieves. I don’t know whether Rwanda has so many thieves like Uganda,” he said to prolonged laughter.

    Mi nilishazipata hizi nyingi sana kwenye inbox yangu!! niliwapotezea kwani najua janja yao!!

    Back to the topic, East Africa is full thieves hilo liko wazi. Viongozi wakikutana, agenda ya kwanza namna ya kuibia wananchi wao, what do you expect? The degree of theft in these countries differs very slightly. Ndo maana wengine wanajifanya wajanja, wengine wanajifanya wana uchumi mzuri! lakini wote wezi tu.
