Speaking in an Interview with KFM, Kaija says there is no law in the current regime that can fight corruption since most of its leaders are corrupt.
According to Kaija, there is no way criminals can fight other criminals citing that corruption can only be wiped out if the country gets a new set of leaders.

In September this year, while addressing the Nation President Yoweri Museveni announced the creation of a toll-free hotline to fight corruption in the public sector. He encouraged the public to report corrupt public officials using the toll free number: 0800100770 and 0772634743.
“These corrupt officials are easy to uproot. Just expose them and see what happens to them and by the way, the toll free numbers belong to my office,” Museveni said. “Uganda is ready takeoff apart from a few problems like corruption.”
