Veteran educationist Fagil Mande has attacked local government and the public servants over moral bankruptcy.
Speaking while appearing on NBS Television on Tuesday Morning, The former boss of Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) decried the manner portrayed during the weekend when a section of Local government officials poured Water on Gen. Kahinda Otafiire the Justice and Constitutional affairs Minister.
Kahinda who had been asked by the president to represent him at the conference organised by the Uganda Local government Association (ULGA) for district leaders including LC5, LC3 chairpersons and district speakers at the Mandela National Stadium Namboole, in Wakiso district survived being lynched by the angry leaders who blocked the minister from addressing them on behalf of President Yoweri Museveni.
“As a country, we have lost the fabric of discipline. How can a group of leaders behave the way they did. If they (local leaders) could pour water on a whole minister, how do they want other people to behave?” Fagil said.
Fagil added that those who attempted to beat up the minister deserve to be punished since the incident depicted high levels of indiscipline.
He also said that there must be a review in the institutions training human capacity, assessing of the kind of training that takes place in the institutions if the country is benefit and achieve vision 2040.
“Vision 2040 is not going to achieve itself; All Ugandans need to take a collective effort. The job of rebuilding Uganda is not a joke and not even a wish. We must all go into ‘Kisanja Hakuna Mchezo’ mood.” He said.
He however further noted that there is general indiscipline in a way that the rule of law and order is gradually sliding away citing that its high time government tightened up the belts.
“I was glad that dresscode guidelines were enforced. We need to get a civil servant that will behave like the service deliverer. The way people dress make them disgust-able. See how girls on the street are dressed, they look like these ‘artificial models on verandas.”
