What type of IGG should Uganda have? Should the country have a Political or Judiciary and eminent person to investigate the government?
The current situation of selective prosecution of former Vice President Prof. Gilbert Bukenya has made us try to understand who the current IGG is and what his intentions and those of his Administration are.
Mr. Baku Rapheal Obudra was born on 25th August 1958 from Metu Sub-County, Moyo District. When he finished his Bachelor of Laws Degree from Makerere University in 1987, he joined the President’s Office as a Legal Officer and in 1992 he joined Hon. Amama Mbabazi as his Principal Assistant when he was the Minister of State for Defence and also the Director General of External Security Organisation (ESO).
With the great help of Hon. Amama Mbabazi, Mr. Baku managed to enter Parliament between 1996 – 2001 representing West Moyo Constituency. He served as member of Defence and Internal Affairs Committee. He survived in Parliament for only one term.
In 1998 Hon. Amama Mbabazi appointed him the Deputy Director Researcher for NRM – Movement Secretariat and in 2004, he made him the Ag. Director Legal Affairs – Movement Secretariat.
In 2005, he was appointed Deputy Inspector General of Government and he is now the Inspector General of Government.
From such a flow of events, one would definitely see the kind of IGG the Government of Uganda has and no wonder there is selective prosecution in the matter of CHOGM and this will continue for other cases if such practice continues.
I think Prof. Bukenya is being prosecuted because of political differences with his Mafia group as he called them some time back because looking at the Prosecutor, you will definitely understand that however much Hon Amama is on the list, he will not appear anyway because everything being done by Mr. Baku is a directive from Hon. Amama Mbabazi.Hon. Amama Mbabazi is the godfather of Mr. Baku Raphael, the Ugandan IGG. A copy of both Amama Mbabazi’s CV and Baku have been attached on the link below:
Will it be possible for such an IGG to prosecute his godfather in different corruption issues for example the CHOGM issue especially that of the Security Tetra CHOGM equipment for which direct money was misused by Hon. Amama Mbabazi? No wonder things are as they are in the Temangalo issue which is still vividly known.
God help our country otherwise all prosecutions being done are politically motivated and for self fights.
