The Inspector General of Government (IGG) has named the most and least compliant leaders when it comes to declaring their incomes, assets and liabilities as per the Leadership Code Act.

In this list, the IGG has revealed that the Office of the President and the Vice President are the most compliant institutions as far as declaring wealth as required by the Leadership Code Act of Uganda is concerned.

In her statement, Ms Mariam Wangadya, the deputy Inspector General of Government said that except for the NRM, members and leaders of other political parties are not declaring their incomes, assets and liabilities.

“Except NRM, the members and leaders of the other political parties are not declaring. These are very informed and learned people who are not complying with the law. When the tribunal comes into force, we shall prosecute them. We are just alerting them,”

Ms Mariam Wangadya, Deputy IGG

Mr George Bamugereire, the acting Inspector General of Government, while revealing the most compliant offices, institutions and districts, said that leaders should take stock and declare all of their assets, incomes, liabilities and how they acquired them for the protection of the public funds.

“This is the time for leaders to take stock and tell the story of their journey by being transparent about their assets, incomes and liabilities and how they acquired it for the protection of public funds,”
