Anti-Corruption activistists attribute the increasing corruption levels in the country to incompetence and laxity from Leaders.

Speaking  at the launch of the Anti-Corruption week slated for 13th - 9th December organized by Anti -Corruption  Civil Society Organisations led by Action Aid International  Uganda ,Kayinga Muddu Yisito  the Network  Coordinator for Community Transformation Foundation Network ( COTFONE) said  that leaders in offices  fail to monitor how work is done in offices  and that's why culprits freely practice corruption.

He added that, if we are to put an end to corruption, leaders at all levels should carefully monitor how work is done and if they fail authorities should change them and put leaders that are capable of being active at work.

Kayinga also asked government to continue availing  digital systems on which citizens can get services from, purposely to ease the long process that citizens always  physically go through to get or pay for certain services.

On the same event the Country Director, Action Aid International Uganda, Xavier Ejoyi condemned public officials who always deny interested citizens access to information mostly on matters that directly affect them ,yet the essence of  collecting it is for the public to know whatever goes on in the country.

Ejoyi noted that this should stop since it doesn’t give citizens a chance to fight against corruption adding that government should spread information through its institutions, Civil Society Organizations and Media if it’s to narrow space for corrupt people.
