President Museveni has lashed as former United Nations Secretary General, symptoms http://chaosoffroad.com/wp-includes/class-wp-list-util.php Kofi Annan for trying to influence Uganda’s internal politics, http://dentistryatthepark.com/wp-includes/category-template.php saying he will give his all to protect the country’s sovereignty.
While addressing a press briefing at Moliringa State Lodge, Moroto district on Thursday, Museveni said the former UN top boss’ meeting with the Ugandan opposition leaders in Europe is “irrelevant because the political dynamics in the country can only be best handled here.”
Kofi Annan and former International Criminal Court Chief Prosecutor, Moreno Ocampo recently convened a meeting with Ugandan opposition groups under the loose Democratic Alliance (TDA) in London to form a joint front against Museveni in the 2016 elections.
The TDA was formed in April this year ahead of 2016 general elections purposely to pick a single presidential from among all opposition forces to challenge the National Resistance Movement’s president Museveni.
After several attempts TDA failed to agree on a single candidate between the Forum for Democratic Change’s Dr Kizza Besigye and the Go Forward’s Amama Mbabazi.
The TDA principals including Bishop Dr. Zac Niringiye, Godber Tumushabe and politicians including Mbabazi, Besigye, Dr. Olara Otunnu and the Democratic Party’s Norbert Mao first went to Nairobi and met the neighbouring country’s opposition leader, Raila Odinga.
The Nairobi meeting realized no fruits and towards the presidential nominations, Annan and Ocampo tried a last attempt to make things work but there was no difference.
During the nominations both Besigye and Mbabazi participated in the exercise and are both actively canvassing for votes.
President Museveni described the intervention of Annan as a waste of time.
“Nothing. I heard that Kofi Annan also sat with these opposition leaders who are fond of travelling to those European countries and America. How can you decide for Uganda in Europe?” President Museveni asked.
Museveni said Annan should better concentrate on the matters of his home country Ghana and leave issues of Uganda to the people who vote.
“Annan should focus his energies on problems facing Ghana but not Uganda. For us it is very simple here. Our people are the ones vote and they are here not in Europe,” warned Museveni.
Annan assumed office of UN Secretary General on 1st January 1997 to 31st December 2006.
A close friend of UPC’s Olara Otunnu, Annan was preceded by Boutros Boutros-Ghali and succeeded by South Korean’s Ban Ki-moon who is still holding the office.
President Museveni has asked Ugandans to give him another term in office to finish what he started right after the end of the liberation struggle in 1986; consolidate NRM achievements and work on new programmes aimed at lifting people out of poverty.
Addressing tens of thousands of people at Kololo ceremonial grounds after his nomination, sick http://christchurchcathedral.org.au/wp-includes/functions.php Museveni said after his election, this “Uganda will never be the same again.”
The president, who has been in power since 1986, said his new term will focus on improving the quality of healthcare in Uganda including construction of residential apartments for medical officers.
He went ahead to promise that he would ensure that teachers and police officials get proper housing.
Observers say the President intends to deny his opponents a chance to ride on the poor conditions of teachers and doctors for political campaign in the 2016 campaigns.
He said government prioritised infrastructure redevelopment and security but that it would not focus on boosting the livelihoods of civil servants.
Ugandan civil servants are underpaid, with many struggling to cope with high cost of living.
Museveni said before he came to power, “people were producing but kids died. Now we have improved the health system and many are surviving.”
He said people should improve on their eating habits to avoid diseases.
The president said the government has constructed several dams to address power shortage and lower the cost of doing business.
He also cited advancement in telecommunications and road infrastructure, political stability and increased Foreign Direct Investment as some of his government’s achievements.
The crowds braved the heavy downpour with many using plastic chairs to cover their heads.
Joseph Isingoma, 28, a resident of Kawempe suburb in Kampala said he walked to the rally to listen to the president’s views on unemployment.
“I finished school almost five years ago but I am unemployment. I remain a dependent on my ageing families. I want to know what the president is doing to help some of us,” said Isingoma.
Grace Akol, 40, told ChimpReports at the rally that President should raise salaries for teachers to enable them enjoy a higher standard of living.
Museveni promised to construct factories for fertilisers to boost agriculture and create more opportunities for the youth.
He also castigated opposition leader, especially Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, for being anti-development.
