News reaching our platform says President Museveni has created a new unit to oversee the work of Uganda Revenue Authority operations and fight corruption within the tax administration system in the country.

According to the statement released on Friday, the Presidential Press Unit said the State House Revenue Intelligence and Strategic Operations Unit will carry out an oversight on the Taxman and fight corruption within the tax administration system.

However, President Museveni has also appointed David Kalemera as a senior presidential advisor and head of the unit.

According to the statement, the creation of the new unit will help the government close revenue leakages and boost tax collection.

This is the fourth unit being created by President Museveni under the State House after the State House Monitoring Unit (SHACU), the State House Anti-Corruption Unit, and the State House Investors Protection Unit.

In conclusion, the creation of some of the units, such as SHACU, has been widely criticized for overlapping functions of existing agencies, such as the Inspectorate of Government, while others are, for the better part, redundant.
