Uganda's taxation body, the Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) has spoken out on reports that it was planning to tax the money earned by Joshua Cheptegei and Jacob Kiplimo for winning medals in the men’s world 10,000m in Oregon on July 17.
Inspector General of Government (IGG) Beti Olive Namisango Kamya has claimed that Nakawa West MP and Committee on Commissions, Statutory Authorities, and State Enterprises (Cosase) chairperson Joel Ssenyonyi is witch-hunting her.
One thing may be said to be true. Uganda's politics under the reign of President Tibuhaburwa Museveni has no truly functional Opposition. It is about Positions. People from the Opposition operate as if everything is OK and have no problem gaining Positions in the NRM Government at the expense of the traditional members. Accordingly, they are supporting President Tibuhaburwa to extend and entrench his hegemony over Uganda well into the future. For God and My Country.
