Minister Chris Baryomunsi warns public servants who leak Government Documents

The Minister of Information, Communications Technology and National Guidance, Dr Chris Baryomnsi has come out to warn all public servants who have developed a habit of leaking government documents. The minister while addressing the media asked these people to desist from such habits because they are unethical.

Baryomunsi said that most times, you find that the President has written to a minister. But before this minister receives the letter, its already circulating on social media. Additionally, the minister said that some of these workers leak the documents with a lot of impunity.

One can even easily tell which office leaked the document if the matter is to be followed up. The Minister went ahead to say that its unethical and unlawful to leak these documents in the hands of those who are not supposed to see them. Therefore measures are being instituted to see that such things are contained and don’t happen again.

“I want to sound a big warning to public servants who leak government documents. Desist from this habit. You find that His Excellency, the president has written to me as a minister but before I have received his letter, you see it on social media. Some leak the documents with a lot of impunity; they tick to whom it’s copied and when you check the letter, you can easily tell which office leaked it. It is wrong, unethical, and unlawful for someone to just leak government documents into the hands of those who are not supposed to see them. We are instituting several measures to contain that practice in government,” said Minister Chris Baryomunsi.

Apparently several confidential letters from the President to several public officials have over time circulated in the media mysteriously. At other times, the Government has even had to come out and deny knowledge of these letters.
