President Yoweri Museveni is seeking the support of the youth in his campaign against corruption, according to Balaam Barugahara Ateenyi, the State Minister for Children and Youth Affairs.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony of 830 Ntare School students who completed an eight-day patriotism training in Mbarara city, Barugahara emphasized that the era of corrupt officials in Uganda is nearing its end.

He urged the students to avoid truancy, which can lead to issues like alcoholism and drug abuse.

“Patriots are good people. The country depends on you, the patriots. The president wants you to love your country, to reject impunity and corruption.

He sees you as the champions of tomorrow, leading the anti-corruption fight. Inform your parents, if any are corrupt, that their time is up,” Barugahara stated.

During the same event, Hellen Seku, the commissioner for the National Secretariat for Patriotism Corps, advised parents to monitor their children’s internet usage.

She highlighted the importance of obtaining knowledge through books and libraries, as relying solely on the internet can be misleading.

“The internet is universal, mixing correct and incorrect information. Patriots and parents must guide children on appropriate knowledge acquisition,” Seku remarked.

Jacqueline Kakunda, the deputy resident city commissioner for Mbarara City North, encouraged students to consider careers in teaching, the police force, and the army.

The government has announced that starting this year, all S6 graduates will undergo mandatory three-month patriotism training, as proposed by the National Patriotism Secretariat.
