A group of youth calling themselves “Kisanja Hakuna Muchezo Evaluation Team” has launched its first year report chronicling the achievements and performance of ministers.

The youth led by former NRM youth leader, Joseph Ssewava, are responding to President Yoweri Museveni’s declaration that this term of office would be “Hakuna Muchezo” as he aims to take Uganda to middle income status.

On Tuesday, Museveni will deliver the State of the Nation Address giving accountability of what has so far been achieved in his one year in office and how he plans to achieve the rest.

“So far the team has five ministers who have tried to work hard,” said Ssewava, Kisanja Hakuna Muchezo Evaluation Team leader.

He identified five ministers include Prime Minister, Ruhakana Rugunda, saying they are the only ones who have so far exhibited fruits for their hard work.

“We found ministers Frank Tumwebaze [ICT], Godfrey Kiwanda Ssuubi [Tourism], Ruhakana Rugunda [Prime Minister], Janet Museveni [Education] and Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi [Youth] to be the best ministers,” he said.

He also said a word in favour of David Bahati, State Minister of Finance for Planning and Betty Amongi, the Lands minister for their good performance.

The group of “researchers” says Tumwebaze managed to lobby funds for the ICT and Information Ministry and initiated the Government Citizens’ Interaction Centre for the citizens which deserves a nod.

The First Lady got a nod for taking control of Makerere University delicate situation and ensuring Uganda takes part in African Cup of Nations [AFCON] during her tenure as Minister for Education and Sports.

Nakiwala and Kiwanda too were recognised for their efforts in handling youth issues and tourism initiatives like the Rolex launch and “Tulambule”, respectively.

 

The rest are non-performers

According to Ssewava, the rest of the ministers are “still lacking” because most of them think they are “untouchables”.

Their report cites Minister for Presidency, Esther Mbulakubuza Mbayo and the State Minister for Kampala, Beti Kamya, as worst performers.

Labelling the rest as non-performers, Ssewava says the remaining ministers have failed to Museveni realise his Hakuna Muchezo programme.
