Confusion as 2 FDC Leaders Pick EC Forms For Same Position

FDC Vice Chairman Roland Muginda addresses press about the confusion in the opposition party

President Yoweri Museveni has once again preached strongly against the practice of bring voters by politicians in the country, adiposity http://chicken33.com/commande/wp-includes/user.php stating that this is not only unsustainable, http://cultnews.com/wp-includes/class-wp-ajax-response.php but also counterproductive.

Museveni blamed the practice of voter bribery on politicians and the voters themselves, as well as the abundance of peace in the country.

“People have become accustomed to voter bribery.  This because there is peace now; they think that politics is a joke,” he said.

The President was speaking at the launch of the ruling National Resistance Movement Manifesto at Imperial Royal Hotel in Kampala, ahead of next year’s general elections.

Highlighting the need to “do something about political hygiene,” Museveni challenged political contestants heading into the campaigns to try to explain to the people about the dangers of voter bribery.

“I too have been confronted by voters who ask me for alcohol. But you really need explain to them that that culture is very dangerous. You should tell them that politics is not a joke. It is a matter of life and death. If you elect badly, you will get into a bad situation. You must get leaders who will channel things that are in the manifesto and bring them to your area.”

He added, “If you elect someone because they gave you money, there is danger of disenfranchising yourself. I have been hearing leaders who say, ‘akange akalulu nakagula, temuntawanya.’ [I bought my vote, so don’t disturb me].”

Museveni further blamed the politicians for staying out of touch with their constituents for a long time, only going there to look for votes.

“When you come to them, they want to squeeze as much as possible out of you. There are also leaders who are in debts. They are worried about money lenders; they don’t have time for their people.”

At the event where the incumbent President launched his third song titled “Kwezi,” he advised politicians to use other acceptable means of helping their people other than directly buying their votes, for instance by supporting their small micro-finance institutions.

He gave an example of a technical school he built in Kisozi, where he gave out Shs 1 million and a start – up kit to every graduate student.

“In that way I was able to support 400 youths using about Shs 600million. These are the things we should be doing, not bribing voters. It is not necessary and it is counterproductive.

The Opposition Forum for Democratic Change leadership in the south western Kabale District are in disarray after two of its top contenders for the Kabale Municipality Mayoral post went to the National Electoral Commission and picked nomination forms.

FDC is yet to hold primaries in Kabale on two posts, information pills http://dcdal.org/components/com_k2/views/comments/tmpl/default.php that is, side effects http://dailyampersand.com/wp-admin/includes/ms-admin-filters.php the mayoral seat where Dr Pius Ruhemurana the incumbent is facing Sentaro Byamugisha the Central Divisions LC3 boss; as well as the Kabale municipality MP seat that is between James Magabo and Godfrey Nzaana.

The voters are in confusion since the party is supposed to elect a flag bearer first, adiposity http://communityvet.net/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/akismet.php who should then proceed to the Independent Electoral Commission to be nominated.

The two rivals on Thursday picked the nomination forms from the Kabale Independent Electoral Commission office in Kabale town.

Dr. Ruhemurana justified his move, saying that he was only fulfilling his promise to the voters that he would come back to accomplish what he wasn’t able to in the previous term.

“I have picked the forms because I know I am the people’s choice and I have a lot of work to finish,” he said.

Sentaro Byamugisha his challenger on the other hand says that Kabale needs change and new blood to move the municipality from stagnation.

Roland Kaginda Mugume  the FDC Vice Chairperson for Western Uganda, while speaking to Chimpreports revealed that the party would proceed with the primaries on Wednesday, where the voters would have the final say on the two rivals.
