President Museveni has released a toll-free hotline to help his government fight corruption in the public sector.
He asked the public to report corrupt public officials using the toll free number: 0800100770 and 0772634743.
“These corrupt officials are easy to uproot. Just expose them and see what happens to them and by the way, the toll free numbers belong to my office,” he said Sunday night while addressing press at State House Entebbe.
Museveni said pessimism among Ugandans was being spread by liars with malicious intent.
He said their actions were affecting sectors such as tourism but that they would be defeated.
“One of the challenges we still have to solve are; corruption by government officials. These are very easy to uproot, just pass the information via the toll free line 0800100770 or Major Edith Nakalema’s 0772634743, they shall be dealt with.”
