“We shall enact a law that allows us to confiscate property of government officers accused of corruption. I will talk to the Speaker and the Chief Justice to see how to fight corruption in Parliament and the Judiciary,” he said.
The president also expressed confidence that the new State House Anti-Corruption Unit established to be headed by Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema will boost the fight against corruption urging members of the public to come out and report any corrupt officers.

“Those public servants who think or feel they are tired of working and promoting integrity should leave. I’m not ready to continue dealing with them. Even the public is also tired of hearing stories about corrupt officers,” he added.
