As someone who has repeatedly called for the censure and indictment of all elected officials who refuse to adhere to the tenets of the Leadership Code, I have to admit that I’m excited by the fact that The New Times has obtained a list of 56 civil servants who were suspended last week for failing to declare their wealth.
And certainly this list makes an interesting reading. Almost every department of government from the armed services to the hospitals have leaders who refused to declare their wealth.
Since it’s our tax monies involved, its essential that we, the Rwandan people, are able to put our leaders to task.
That is why I’m so pleased that the list was revealed. This is because I’ll be able to separate the leaders who follow the Leadership Code and those who don’t. Those on the list should be ashamed of themselves.
