Bamuturaki made this call in his Labor Day message, which was celebrated nationally at St. Leo’s Kyegobe in Fort Portal.

Bamuturaki revealed that in most cases some politicians collude with public officials to commit acts of corruption.

He now appeals to political leaders to always give technocrats a break.

He said the two parties should collaborate and work together as a team to fight corruption.

During his tenure as LC5 chairperson in Mbarara district, Bamuturaki was always strict with public servants and service delivery.

During his tenure, some officials, including the former CAO, District Lands Officer and Survey Officer, were implicated and arrested by the State House Anti-Corruption Unit then headed by Col. Edith Nakalema.

Bamuturaki never tolerated corruption.

He urged political leaders and technocrats to reflect on corruption and its effects while celebrating Labor Day.

Bamuturaki led Mbarara district for a single term as LC5 president before retiring to contest the Kashari South MP seat.
