Entebbe, Uganda: Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) has banned the capturing of videos and photos at Entebbe International Airport, days after news of UCCA staff extorting travellers leaked.
Airport authority the pinned a post that read “capturing videos and taking photos is prohibited. Management.”
For some of you who may need to know more about the Kawukumi at the Airport, social media platforms, especially Twitter and TikTok, have for weeks now been awash with videos of several Ugandans complaining about cases of extortions travellers who use the airport being subjected to.
The above triggered the Inspector General of Government (IGG) to, pick an interest and vowed to expose all those involved.
IGG Betty Kamya said, “As the IGG, I want to applaud the [ordinary] citizens of Uganda, who have come out to expose the extortion at the airport. These are our heroes because they are not politicians, religious leaders or government officials, but local Ugandans who have come out to say enough is enough of corruption.”
The IGG said this is not the first time the inspectorate is investigating UCCA staff. Kamya said they have investigated at least 21 cases of corruption in the authority in the last five years.
“It should be clear that whoever is found culpable of corruption or acquiring of wealth in any illicit way shall be prosecuted according to the Illicit Acquisition of Wealth Act or the Money Laundering Act,” vowed Kamya.
