Top officials of the State House Anticorruption Unit (SHACU) and the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) recently excited participants at the National Leadership Institute (NALI) Kyankwanzi when they exhibited acquired skills in parade drills and arms assembling.

The officials, who included the URA Commissioner General Doris Akol participated in military drills before guests at the passing out of 47 participants from State House and 20 top managers from URA, including four commissioners and 12 assistant commissioners at the end of a two-weeks training course.

The guests included the deputy Inspector General of Police, Major Gen. Sabiiti Muzeeyi, the head of SHACU, Col. Edith Nakalema and board members of the two organization plus participants from the Uganda National Bureau of Standards.

The course covered a wide range of topics that included the making of committed officers, political education, corruption and its impact to the economy, skills at arms and drills.

Sabiiti delivered a lecture on the ‘role of ideology in national security' and presented prizes to the best course participants who included Stella Nyapendi, who scooped the prize for being the most active trainee.

Dickson Katashumba, URA Commissioner for Customs won a prize for the best marksmanship, Bernard Ochaya, a senior detective with SHACU was declared the most active participant, Olga Ajiri had the best attitude while Capt. Miriam Apio Okello was the best markswoman. The training was coordinated by the NALI director, Brig. David Kasura.

Speaking to participants Sabiiti noted that there were important factors in service delivery that the trainees ought to master, which he said included ideology, discipline and physical fitness.

He however cautioned them against negative ideology, which he said if not checked, can lead to negative consequences to the national security.

Lt. Col. Nakalema vowed to leave no stone unturned in her renewed efforts to weed out corruption in government ministries and departments.

"After here, we expect high integrity from the trainees. They should all know that the power they have in their offices comes from the people, we therefore anticipate them to serve knowing that they derive their powers from the public and we expect them to serve their country with patriotism," she said.

On her side, Akol said she was optimistic that the training will improve the URA staff in the way they carry out their duties and be able to increase their influence in the nation and in the communities where they live.

According to Akol, NALI was the perfect place for them to train and re-energize themselves and rally their team to deliver on the assignment of funding Uganda's growth and development agenda.

"When a decision was done to have senior managers come over, we were specifically looking for rejuvenating our spirit of patriotism, renewing our culture of transformative and servant leadership as well as enhancing team work and collaboration".

She added, "We have received more than we bargained for and we are all excited".
