Corruption and tribalism could cause genocide, warns Awori

Corruption and tribalism could cause genocide, warns Awori | UgandaNuz | Scoop.it

Longtime politician Aggrey Awori, a former minister of ICT and MP for Samia Bugwe North, says President Museveni has to rein in corruption and ethnic favoritism that characterize his government because Uganda risks disintegrating.
In a wide-ranging interview with Baker Batte Lule about NRM’s 32 years in power, Awori, who spent over two decades opposing Museveni but later joined him, said the imbalance between the north/east and central/west is so glaring that both the private and public sectors are dominated by the same group.
This, he said, has capacity to trigger a genocide as the marginalized groups try to fight against being left out in the national cake sharing.
