Ugandaâ€™s Yoweri Museveni has issued a â€śtough warningâ€ť to government officials against corruption and the underutilization of loan funds.
The countryâ€™s president expressed his disgust on some government officialsâ€™ attitudes who â€śsolicit bribes and favours from investors, frustrating them in the processâ€ť during a cabinet meeting on Friday.
â€śThis must stop or else people will be embarrassed. You shouldnâ€™t ask investors to pay your childrenâ€™s school fees, or do this and that. If you have a problem, call a clan meeting and solve it as a family, not through corruption,â€ť President Museveni said in a series of tweets.
Museveni revealed that the World Bank has issued loans and grants of $1.8 billion but only 10% of it has been utilized.
â€śTough action will be taken against government officials who negligently fail to utilize these funds,â€ť he warned.
Museveni earlier announced that Uganda has recovered from its economical downturn and the country needs to kick out poverty.
He also called on the security organs to stop â€śnegative elements infiltrating decision-making centres of government.â€ť
