Uganda is characterized by gross corruption – Bobi Wine

Kyagulanyi believes that wealth and power are concentrated in the hands of a small group.

The President of National Unity Platform, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu, aka Bobi Wine, says Uganda is characterized by gross corruption, inequity and lack of opportunities for Ugandans.

Kyagulanyi believes that wealth and power are concentrated in the hands of a small group. He made the remarks at the unveiling of the Alternative Budget for Financial Year (FY) 2023/24.

The Alternative Budget released at the Parliament of Uganda is under the theme “A Human Rights Approach to Resource Allocation.”

Bobi Wine said the Alternative Budget truly represents the priorities, needs, and aspirations of all Ugandans.

The budget propositions, the NUP leader said, are rooted in the principles of Universal Human Rights and Equality.

“We must ensure that everyone has access to resources that they need to succeed in life and this means investing in social protection programs,” he said.

He added: “The Alternative Budget isn’t just a collection of figures and numbers. It’s indeed a reflection of the values we hold so dear as a party and as a team,” he added.

The NUP president further highlighted that human rights are a fundamental aspect of human dignity that should be respected and protected in all aspects of life, including economics.

He said they believe every Ugandan deserves a chance to live regardless of their background, and that it is possible to build a Uganda that works for everybody, not just a select few.

Meanwhile, Mathias Mpuuga, the leader of the Opposition in Parliament, said: “We are presenting to the country our alternative budget priorities, proposing a shift in the way national resources are managed. A Human Rights approach to budgeting is what we are proposing,”
