Why investor John quit Uganda
Please read what John said about Uganda…
I worked and lived in Kampala for 18 years. I ran my own private company from 2001 until 2014
🕹Everything is wrong with Uganda.
📍The Director won’t give you contract except you pay up front .
📍The banks won’t give you loan except you concede a certain percentage.
🚩The man supervising the contract won’t pass the job except you play ball.
🚩The clerk won’t pass your file for payment except you rob his palm.
🚩The accounts department won’t raise your payment voucher or cheque unless you see them. I can go on and on.
📍The worst thing is that it has become a norm that nobody sees anything wrong with.
🚩 If you think otherwise, they begin to think you are sick and not normal.
📍If you try to stand in their way, you put your life at risk.
🚩If you get killed there is no justice system in place to seek redress and bring the perpetrators to book.
📍The police is corrupt , the Judiciary is the same.
🚩Even the religious circle is not spared.
📍Everything in Uganda revolves around corruption.
🚩Nobody cares about anybody. No law and order.
🚩 I looked from my left to right, everybody is only desperate about one thing “money”.
📍They will kill anybody and anything that stand between them and money.
🚩I am an electrical engineer with MNSE and COREN. The system don’t care about my qualifications.
🚩Distribution and transmission jobs are given to friends and relatives without any basic skills.
🚩I started asking myself, how do I convince my kids that education and hard work is rewarding?
🙈When fools and touts are running the country from the local govt to the Presidency.
🚩Is this what my four sons will also go through? In 2014 I decided I have had enough. I decided I was leaving. I migrated to Australia with my family.
🚩Don’t put yourself in harm way for any reason.
🚩The problem of Uganda is in the hands of Ugandans living outside Uganda.
🙉Try starting a gate house in your village, everybody wants to profiteer from it. The bricklayer, the carpenter, the mason and even your brother who claim to be supervising on your behalf.
🚩 *They are corrupt, morally bankrupt and selfish.*
🚩 *Everybody there thinks about himself and nobody is thinking about Uganda* .
📍You don’t have to be the one to go there to change anything.
