A week ago IG Betty Kamya while releasing annual reports for the three consecutive years from January-June 2022, July-December 2022, and January-June 2023 said that Museveni wrote to her guiding that Army officials should be exonerated from declaring their wealth publically due to security concerns.

Kamya revealed that her office is considering creating a separate portal for CIM through which UPDF soldiers will declare their wealth.

However, the Shadow Minister for Information and Anti-Corruption also Mityana district woman MP, Joyce Bagala backed by other opposition MPs, threatened to sue the IGG, Director CIM, and Museveni once the directive is implemented.
