The state minister for ethics and integrity Fr. Simon Lokodo wants parliament to pass a law that restricts voters from demanding money from politicians in exchange for votes.

 

Lokodo said commercialization of politics compromises the quality of leaders elected and affects service delivery because leaders buy the votes and have to recover their money.

 

“Commercializing politics makes it meaningless and it loses its purpose. People should elect leaders irrespective of their financial, economic and esteem levels” Lokodo said.

 

“I wish a law could be passed where voters should not demand money from their candidates to avoid a situation where he wins and doesn’t help the people with their problems” he added.

 

Lokodo urged Ugandans to vote capable leaders who ill ably represent them in the forthcoming elections.
