After Museveni clearing Among, Parliament of Corruption, what next?

Questions loom over the future of accountability measures within Uganda’s governmental institutions in the wake of President Museveni’s public exoneration of the Speaker and Parliament regarding the leaked documents exposing corruption over the entire month of March 2024.

Despite calls for transparency and investigation, the President’s firm stance has left many pondering the fate of further inquiries by bodies such as the Auditor General and Inspectorate of Government (IGG), who ironically report to the Parliament and the Presidency.

Amidst the unfolding scenario, online users have expressed a range of sentiments.

One user on X, formerly Twitter, known as Mr Diplomacy, appears resigned, citing a perceived positive outcome of Speaker Anita Among’s endeavors in constructing a hospital school.

However, others like Mitty Tree express concern, highlighting the potential for ongoing corruption within Parliament and its normalization among certain segments of the population.

The sentiment of resignation is further echoed by Aluta, who suggests a perceived alignment between Speaker Among and President Museveni, hinting at a deeper entanglement of interests. Full Clip’s comment reflects a prevailing skepticism regarding the efficacy of investigations, implying that they may be superficial and merely aimed at placating public outcry.
