Milly Babirye Babalanda, the Minister for Presidency, has urged councillors from the Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) to partner with the government to improve service delivery by aligning resources and expertise, voicing out what is not going right, demanding accountability, and reporting corrupt leaders for the benefit of the nation.

Babalaanda, while addressing KCCA Councillors on February 16, 2024, who are attending a mindset change workshop at the Intelligence Training Institute Entebbe, applauded them for accepting to learn, adding that it is a sign of maturity in politics.

“A good and productive opposition must have clear facts of things if it is to check the government in power; if the opposition cannot equip them with precise information, facts, and figures, then it cannot successfully guide or cause the government to account,” Babalanda said.

She added that if the opposition fails to equip itself with facts, it will instead end up adapting conventional means such as sowing seeds of hatred and malice, using abusive language, and always boycotting government projects.

According to Babalanda, there is room for anyone in opposition to work with the government, President Museveni, or the NRM government because, as a requirement, the government is the one that approves the work plans.

“Therefore, the problem is not President Museveni, but service delivery, and you will not understand all this unless you get together with the government and partner with it to see that you put it under pressure to deliver services for the people you lead,” Babalanda added.

The minister advised the councillors to always report corrupt officials without fear. According to her, as leaders, they should identify and expose their underperforming coworkers.
