The Inspector General of Government (IGG), Irene Mulyagonja, has turned down a proposal to investigate and expose the ‘most corrupt tribes’.


A man who identified himself as a lecturer from Makerere University Business School asked Mulyagonja to conduct a study on the “most corrupt tribes” in the country during the launch of the fourth annual report on tracking corruption trends in Uganda using the data tracking mechanism at hotel Africana in Kampala on Tuesday.


The study, the man who identified himself as a Muslim, said should also reveal the religions of the most corrupt Ugandans.


“Such an investigation would be illegal and unconstitutional and against the bill of rights. We cannot engage in such a study,” Mulyagonja said.


Responding to a question of “old people” who have been employed in the public service for decades, the IGG said “You do not need a job in the public service to make a difference. We did not start in public service. It’s not automatic that when old people leave, there will be an automatic progression.”


She added, “Look at what happened to NSSF  when it was headed by “a young man”. He went into gambling,”
The head of public service and secretary to cabinet, John Mitala said “Even if the old people left public service today the jobs will not just be given to the youth,”
