The Justice and Constitution affairs minister Kahinda Otafiire has noted that government may not easily prevent crimes like murder from happening in the country as long as criminals remain in society.
Speaking to journalists in Mbarara where he closed a 23rd annual international management conference for Makerere University business school, Otafiire said that government is doing all the best to try and reverse this kind of trend by installing CCTV cameras and deployment of intelligence officers on city streets so to find out those involved in these crimes.
Commenting on the government’s proposal to merge some of its agencies, the justice minister said the move will create efficiency in management because they were not answerable to their line ministries and were also distorting payment systems and chain of command.
The Kitgum woman MP Beatrace Anywar also commenting on the merger proposal, said that government and cabinet should revisit the decision and exclude UNRA from the agencies listed because of good performance in road construction work.
She said that since UNRA’s inception, the road network has tremendously increased much more than when the response was still with ministry of works and transport which she said may not properly utilize all the road funds once the proposal is implemented.
Anywar also attributed the worrying security situation in the country to foreigners whom she said are financing and misleading some people in opposition in order to achieve their objectives.
She called on Ugandans not listen to such people in order to deny them the opportunity of dividing Ugandans.
