It is very rare for artiste Alex Bagonza alias A Pass to speak about something that isn’t ‘A Pass like’.
So imagine our surprise when he too added his voice to the number of angry Ugandans following the recent Bank of Uganda currency printing scandal.
Through his social media platform, the comic singer alleged that the level of corruption and theft by some government officials has made many Ugandans feel ashamed of their country.
“It’s very hard to be proud of the Uganda we live in when the people that should do right are doing wrong and on the highest level. The level of corruption and theft by government officials and people in positions of power is alarming,” A Pass shared.
The singer alleged that given the political pressure and troubles that the country is going through, the last thing Uganda needed was a money scam from Bank of Uganda.
“We ought to be ashamed of ourselves as we look at this Bank of Uganda scam. Personally I think we are fvcked for days if such things can happen in times like now” he said.
This alarming situation that got the ‘Didi Dada’ singer worried, came after news broke that some officials within the Bank of Uganda illegally printed Shs90 billion for their selfish reasons.
According to Col Edith Nakalema, the Head of State House Anti-corruption Unit, eight directors at Bank of Uganda are under investigation by Police, Military and State House Anti –Corruption Unit for illegally printing and smuggling money in the excess of Shs 90 billion.
