NO THIRD TERM! IGG Irene Mulyagonja Kakooza

The Inspector General of Government has told the Committee that her job is stressful and that she does not want her tenure of office to be renewed.

The IGG’s remarks were prompted by comments made by the Legal Committee Chairperson Markson Oboth, who praised Ms. Mulyagonja for doing ‘a commendable job’ in fighting corruption and for enforcing the Leadership Code of Conduct.

“We are glad for your endeavours and Parliament would not hesitate to move a substantive motion to extend your tenure due to public interests,” Oboth Oboth told Mulyagonja, who was appearing before Parliament to present her department’s budgetary estimates.

However, in response Ms. Mulyagonja was quick in telling Oboth that she has no intention to have her contract renewed as “the job is too stressful” and that it was time for her to get a well-deserved rest.

“This is a tedious and stressful job that makes it difficult to be in charge for many years.  I am glad my contract is about to expire and I take a rest,” she said.

It should be recalled that Mulyagonja took over office from Raphael Baku, who was acting IGG, having been appointed to the post by President Yoweri Museveni in 2012.

Her current contract was renewed in 2016 and is set to elapse in 2021.
