KAMPALA: The minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs Norbert Mao has vowed to end the senseless killings in the country.
While receiving the office from the acting minister of Justice and Constitutional Affairs, Muruli Mukasa on Friday, Mao was tasked to oversee the activities of all agencies in the ministry.
Mukasa, who has been overseeing the activities of the ministry since the start of the year wished Mao success in the new job and expressed confidence that the DP president general will excel.
He tasked Mao to be a committed overseer of all activities done by all the ministry’s agencies.
In response, Mao vowed to sell to the executive all the new developmental ideas of transitional justice that the ministry has not promoted.
“We need to tell each other the truth. Who has been hurting Ugandans? Who kills Ugandans, Who steals money of Ugandans?” asked Mao.
Mao vowed to execute tasks awaiting him without ignoring the terms of agreement between NRM and DP that led to his appointment in the new role.
“We have a cooperation agreement with some key priority areas which I think you will advise me on how to get them achieved in government,” Mao said.
Mao has further called upon ministry stakeholders to ensure internal solutions to ministerial challenges before escalating them to the appointing authority.
“But more importantly we will solve the problems here, we are never going to go to President Museveni to help solve any problem of the Minister of Justice. We will lock that door and we will solve it.” said Mao in a matter of fact tone.
