Yesterday, some one told me that employees at Kakira cannot easily strike. He connected it to what he said was a fact that the company has 'good touch' with Statehouse! He said that these people have an airstrip and that goods come in to this site and a revenue vehicle goes thereafter, but chances are that the would be tax liability is not met as required by law, may be just part of it! He went further and told me that the company declares just part of its daily production for tax purposes.
As I have stated up, this is what I was told. It is in the court of Parliament and other organs of Government to establish the truth as it looks like a lot of money may be going to State House this way instead of going to the Consolidated fund. The saying of money being taken to State House is not new. In the days of UTODA, so information was going around that UTODA was regularly reemitting money to State House and this was their security to avoid paying as required to KCC.
President Museveni makes a lot of expenditures many of whose source is not clear. Sometime on a talk show, some MP said that an Asian had told him that if it were not the support they make to politicians including State House, they would contribute much more to community initiatives.
May be a lot needs to be done to see that money supposed to be Government revenue does not become State House income, knowing very well the burden the people of Uganda shoulder on behalf of State House given the vicious circle of supplementaries they always request.
