IGG: Kyagulanyi must declare bulletproof car by March 31

Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The Inspectorate of Government is waiting for National Unity Platform (NUP) president Robert Kyagulanyi to update the anti-corruption body on his wealth since information circulated that he had got a donation of an armored (bullet-proof) car.

The Leadership Code Act 2002 of Uganda, compels all leaders to periodically declare their wealth, while a gift worth 10 currency points in value or Shs 200,000 is supposed to be declared immediately.

Last week, Kyagulanyi informed his supporters that a group of mainly foreign-based supporters had been raising funds during his presidential bid to acquire for him a bulletproof car so as to go through the violent campaign period.

According to many of his supporters, the Land Cruiser car is more than Shs 300 million.

An internet search shows that a new Toyota Land-Cruiser vehicle costs from $85,000 (Shs 310m), while an armored one goes for between $395,000 and $450,000 (Shs 1.4 billion to 1.65 billion), depending on the features.

Kyagulanyi also said that even the bullet-proof jacket and the helmet he has been using were bought by his supporters. He said he received several of those and gave them to other supporters who were in the line of danger. He also said if he hadn’t been wearing the bulletproof helmet, “the story would have been different” when they were shot at in Masaka.

The director Leadership Code Annet Twine says once a leader gets a donation, the leader is expected to declare it there and then.

The acting IGG George Bamugemereire says where a leader fails to or refuses to justify that they are entitled to the item in question, it becomes government property.

Bamugemereire says that like any leader, Kyagulanyi will be expected to declare the car whether it was donated or bought by himself.

He says Kyagulanyi is still a leader of a political party registered under the laws and like any leader, he is expected to declare his wealth irrespective of how it was acquired.

  1. Bobi Wine got the bulletproof car and bulletproof vests and helmets with the perception that he is the commander in chief of his army with red berets and red uniforms. It’s a demonic army that was strategically formed to counter UPDF and unleash violence on the citizens. Many gullible people really believed Bobi Wine’s army of red berets was more powerful than UPDF since it is from the underworld from where he derives his powers. However, Satan has no free rewards. In the end, Bobi Wine had to sacrifice a lot of his supporters, even some of his bodyguards. His foreign backers fundraised for him to help remove Museveni because he, Museveni, promotes state homophobia or homonationalism, where the majority of the population has dislike homosexuality. After his defeat, Bobi Wine seems to have reached the end of the road. He now has to talk about human rights and run to the UN. It was an adventure.

    • The Bible says, “The wicked will not understand.”

      • But you man Victor, where could you have gotten all the devil information from about Bobi Wine if you are not into such things, don’t pretend to know Bible yet you are praising Museveni who is an open sinner like any other person, review your statements before you can send to the public to incite negative discussions. GOD should forgive you

        • God forbid. I cant imagine such people like Victor may be Not in a sober state could write such an imaginative comment more so like a script of a HOROR film. These are truelly end times is people like Victor cannot see who is Devil between Museveni and Bobi Wine. Good enough the world is watching and they know the truth who is who.

  2. Interesting. Still want to see leaders emulate a simple lifestyle. Ride a bicycle or get a cheaper off road car.
