VOCAL NRM MPs Mohammed Nsereko and Theodore Sekikuubo toured the city and addressed rallies amidst tight security.

The duo urged President Yoweri Museveni to expose all politicians involved in the sugar scam.

They said this will show the President’s commitment in fighting corruption in his government.

President Museveni directed sugar manufacturers to stop selling sugar to politicians and speculators who he described as greedy.

Nsereko observed that the public had welcomed the President’s disclosure that sugar prices had been hiked by government politicians.

“We are happy with the President’s directive but we think his commitment can only be reflected when he discloses those involved,” he said.

The relatively peaceful tour started at Kiseka market where people turned up in big numbers.

Nsereko later went to Kisenyi, Park Yard, Owino, Nabugabo and Nakasero markets.

He said the President should protect his image by disassociating himself from corrupt individuals.

Nsereko said acts like corruption had tarnished the party’s image, forcing many members to cross over to the opposition.

“We speak the truth without fear because we love our party. The President should fight the wrong elements to protect his image,” he said.

“The President said he wanted zero tolerance to corruption. Now is the time to act,” Nsereko said, adding that corrupt officials should be suspended to pave way for investigations.

On the Mabira forest giveaway, Nsereko advised Mehta to buy alternative land. He also condemned the manner in which the Kampala City Council Authority Executive Director, Jennifer Musisi, evicted the street vendors without providing any alternative.

Ssekikubo who accompanied him on all rallies, said they will continue exposing the thieves in government until the President acts.

He added that the issue of Mabira was not debatable and he would never stop criticising the President’s move.
