Corruption, lack of rule of law will be the death of Uganda

Uganda is yet to fully appreciate the extent of the exposure that citizens have been put to, but this could happen within a week or two after a number of officials, who claimed to love their kin more than the rest of us, used their position and power to bypass all forms of screening at the point of entry, Entebbe International Airport.

It is alleged that some four ministers, a general in the army and others not specified personally went to or sent officers with clear instructions to retrieve their children and relatives from the airport, some of whom were returning from ‘Category One’ countries such as South Korea, South Africa, the United States of America, Germany, Italy, China and the United Arab Emirates, through Dubai.

A number of legislators also ignored the quarantine requirement and instead went on to interact with unsuspecting people in banks and parliament.
