Mukono municipality member of parliament hon Betty Nambooze has asked president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to sack Minister of foreign affairs Sam Kutesa over corruption allegations.
Speaking to congregation at St Peter’s church at Kyaggwe, Mukono, Nambooze Said Kutesa brought shame to the country and should be sacked by president Museveni.
Sam Kutesa allegedly received $500,000 (about sh1.8 billion) bribe in exchange for obtaining business advantages for a Chinese energy company while he was serving as president UN General Assembly between 2014 and 2015.
Last week on Wednesday a former Hong Kong Minister Patrick Ho-Ping was found guilty by federal jury in new York for offering millions of dollars in bribes to African officials including Uganda’s Foreign affairs minister Sam Kutesa and he faces jail time upon sentencing.
Last week president Yoweri Museveni was awarded by Transparency International for his anti corruption activities.
Nambooze says Kutesa’s involvement in corruption by receiving bribes has ashamed Uganda internationally so he should be sacked .”Uganda has been appearing on international news papers’ She said .
She Said that Since president Museveni is going to address the country about corruption he should sack Sam Kutesa because he is a disgrace to the country.
“Sam Kutesa should apologize to the country for what he did’ Betty said . Adding that corruption and bribery is commonly carried by top ministers and top goverment officials.
