Gerald Karuhanga, Western Youth Member of Parliament has vowed to fight corruption and corrupt politicians even if it means sacrificing his blood and life. Karuhanga yesterday shocked parliament and the entire country when he mentioned names of three senior accused of receiving billions of shillings in bribes from Tullow Oil Uganda.
They include Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi, Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Kutesa and former Energy Minister Hillary Onek. Karuhanga wants government to take action against the implicated ministers. He advised President Yoweri Museveni to sack the implicated ministers and institute an independent commission of inquiry into the mass corruption in the oil sector.
He said that if Museveni does not take the decision, parliament would expose more information of the rot involving the named ministers in the Oil sector. Karuhanga warned the implicated ministers not to interfere with MPs’ investigations threatening to expose more details on their dealings.
//Cue In: “If we’ve got to fight corruption……..”
Cue Out: “……will be charged and convicted.”//
The youthful MP denied allegations that some to government officials could be using him to fight a bigger political battle. Amama Mbabazi has denied all allegations that he received bribes from Tullow oil. He also denied that his daughter, Ninah Mbabazi was doing any business in Oil.
Mbabazi told Uganda Radio Network last night that even if his daughter was doing business in Oil, there is no way that it can be linked to him having influenced her getting it. The Special session of parliamentary debate is going into its second day this morning.
