The unit is headed by Maj. Edith Nakalema and assisted by the other three that include; the former Secretary General Uganda National teachers Union, James Tweheyo, former Mbarara Resident District Commissioner (RDC), Maj. Martha Asiimwe and a one sister Akior.
The President has lashed out at traffic police, terming it as parasites on the road, and police in general, directing it to stop arresting people for idol and disorderly, which he termed as colonial nonsense.
The president further noted that it is possible to win the fight against corruption, because there is enough manpower to replace the corrupt government officials.
Meanwhile, in Mbarara town, Residents who talked to www.mknewslink.com expressed mixed reactions over the new appointed Anti Corruption Unit.
Lady councilor for Kakoba, Mbarara municipality Natamba Doreen said that Museveni should give people a chance to vote for people they want in the Unit but not simply appointing them.
She noted that even if president chooses the committee, corruption will keep in Uganda.
Others said that there are many institutions which are fighting corruption but they have not yielded, noting that neither will this new Unit help.
