For Ridemta Eyo Taru, 41, it was the government policy to allow girls back in school after pregnancy that has drawn her to love President Museveni.

“He has promoted the education of the girl child which has reduced on school dropout rates. He has also allowed pregnant girls to join school after giving birth. I also thank the NRM for the malaria control programme through distribution of mosquito nets. This government has enabled NGOs to reach us for other social services that we get.

Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) President Jimmy Akena’s declaration supporting an alliance with the ruling NRM has touched off a rebellion in his party.

ChimpReports has exclusively learned that UPC youth wingers and elders are organizing a protest in Lira municipality next week to protest against Akena’s decision to embrace NRM.

Addressing the media in Kampala this week, discount http://cyberstudio.biz/main/components/com_k2/sef_ext/com_k2.php Akena submitted: “I can confirm that we are in talks with NRM whereby the core UPC minimum agenda that addresses key issues like health, information pills education and agriculture will guide all engagements over the next 5 years.”

Akena revealed that the talks with president Museveni were equally aimed at ensuring a peaceful transition after the latter’s last term in office.

“As UPC we firmly believe in the need for peaceful transition and we have a clear understanding that constitutionally, president Museveni won’t be eligible to stand for the next term by age. It should also be clear and sand dry that he is the current president who has been for 30 years; NRM has earned support and we are not going to wish them out of the political arena of this country,” he added.

Rebellion

However, this has rattled the party with many accusing Akena of betraying his father, Dr Milton Obote.

The group led by former Oyam South MP and an aspirant for Lira Municipality MP seat Hon. Isha Otto and a one David are mobilising supporters from the entire Lango sub-region to demonstrate on the streets of Lira against a possible alliance with NRM.

Led by President Museveni, the NRA guerrillas exerted the military pressure which sparked off a coup against Obote in 1985.

Museveni, who had served as an intelligence officer under Obote, would later topple the Okello Junta before seizing power in 1986.

Obote fled to exile in Zambia until his death.

Despite this dark history, Museveni reconciled with the Obote family.

Reprisal

Otto told the media in Kampala on Wednesday that, “Many UPC members have suffered from insults, torture, abductions and killings by Museveni; we shall never allow our party to be sold off for personal political gain.”

He further said it was very absurd that despite the “crimes committed against the former party president, Apollo Milton Obote by president Museveni, his son Akena would go on to collaborate with him for just petty political gain.”

He added: “Museveni once described Obote as a serpent who wouldn’t even deserve to be buried on Ugandan land; just recently while campaigning in Luwero, the same man accused Obote and the UPC government for killings that occurred in the area during the bush war.”

“What Akena has done is a highest form of betrayal to UPC. We shall never reconcile with Museveni not until he on principal apologizes to us for all the crimes that he and his government has unleashed to the people of Lango.”

The protests are planned for next Wednesday.
