Bishop Zac Niringiye, has warned that unless strong institutions are established to consolidate achievements of President Yoweri Museveni over the past 20 years, they could be eroded.
Bishop Niringiye, who is the chairman of African Peer Review Mechanism National governing Council says that, the personal intervention of President Yoweri Museveni in matters that could be addressed by technocrats is weakening government institutions.
He was presenting the Uganda Country Review report at parliament this afternoon.
Bishop Niringiye warned Ugandans to desist from the belief that President Museveni can handle every problem beyond the laid down institutions.
// Cue in iHave You noticed that #.
Cue Out #.People move on but a country remainsi//
Niringiye said there should be sanctions against such practice from the Central government up to lower local governments to sustain the gains beyond the current regime.
// Cue in: iwe need to put in place ##
Cue Out: #. Institutions are established with clear mandatesi //
Peter Lokeris, one of the government ministers who attended the meeting declined to comment on the issue.
He however concurred with Bishop Niringiye that corruption was eroding some of the gains made by the current regime.
The Africa Peer review Mechanism report among other issues recommends a review on the Presidential term limits, the appointment of the electoral commission and the need for structural reforms to address the high poverty levels and worsening inequality amongst Ugandans.
