Former National Unity Platform – NUP presidential flag bearer Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine has been given up to end of March to declare his armored car or it becomes government property.
The deadline was announced by the Acting Inspector General of Government George Bamugemereire during a media engagement in Kampala.
During the engagement, the IGG revealed that all leaders will start declaring their assets, income and liabilities on March 1.
The director for the leadership code at the Inspectorate of Government, Annet Twine, while answering a question from a journalist, confirmed that leaders will have to declare all assets including gifts and donations in a move to fight corruption.
At the same function, the state minister for Ethics and integrity Fr Simon Lokodo reiterated government’s commitment to fighting corruption.
Kyagulanyi, a former presidential candidate, last week unveiled his new SUV and Cruiser V8 worth over sh1b, which he claimed is armored.
“There is another group of comrades who kick-started a fundraising campaign for a bulletproof vehicle. These comrades informed me of their plan, but I thought it was an uphill task, given how expensive it is. A few weeks ago, these comrades surprised me when they informed me that they had succeeded in raising enough money for the vehicle, and here it is. I can’t thank you enough,” Kyagulanyi wrote on his Facebook profile.
