The FDC stalwart who served for 9 years as the party’s defense secretary said he now believed Besigye is a selfseeker who has issues  with the ruling regime and is pursuing his personal vendetta rather than  seeking a genuine regime change.

Angoliga added the FDC founding president is not an honest man but one who always changes his words for his own benefit and that such an individual must not be trusted with power.

“Besigye’s mind is that it’s either him to lead or no one else. In fact no one in the FDC knows his political game plan because in the whole of the 15 years in leadership he has never consulted or discussed his plans with the political leaders.”

“He is greedy for political power, selfish in nature, discriminative in practice and only interested to be in control.”

Angoliga cited 2012 when Dr.Besigye stepped down as party president claiming the NRM regime could not be removed from power through elections unless electoral reforms were put in place and that he would not contest again not until these had been realized; only to make a made a u-turn  and offer himself as the party presidential flag bearer .

“This caused a lot of confusion in the party to date many have stopped trusting him. Here is a leader who says he will not contest again unless electoral reforms are put in place because he doesn’t envisage anyone else to contest for presidency on the party ticket except him? This is not how a true honest leader should behave.”

Besigye however, holds that his pursuit for electoral reforms is not dead and would not be futile. He also notes that seeking the Presidential office should have no limit as is the case with seeking reelection.

TDA

Angoliga partly blamed Besigye for failing the opposition collation, TDA, when he refused to accept defeat by former Prime Minister Hon Amama Mbabazi.

“He claimed the selection process was flawed and chose to run as an FDC candidate which was against the TDA protocol contrary to what he had earlier said during the delegate’s conference at Namboole that the party would rally behind whoever would be selected by TDA.”

Asked whether he had not been offered money by the ruling NRM regime to destabilize the strongest opposition party and later be rewarded, Angoliga said he had not been in contact with any government official in the past few years and said he has been through thick and thin that money is nothing to him.”

On why he didn’t discuss the grievances within the party organs Angoliga said the FDC organs are a toothless dog that cannot do anything to solve problems within the party.

Meanwhile, FDC spokesperson Ibrahim Semujju Nganda said everyone in the country has freedom to speak what they want and that he would not say anything about Angoliga’s remarks.

“This is a free country and you not expect me to respond to what he has said. I have no time for him,” Ssemujju told this website in a phone interview.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Janet Moves to Support Karamoja’s Iconic Matany Hospital

The First Lady and Minister for Karamoja Affairs Janet Museveni has said she is proud of the work St. Kizito Hospital Matany has been doing for a long time to save lives of Ugandans in Karamoja and the neighbouring districts.

“God put Matany Hospital strategically in Karamoja to save life and we have all the confidence that it will continue to serve the people of Karamoja,” she said about the hospital which has been operating since the early 70s.

The First Lady was meeting Matany Hospital Administration team and the School of Nursing and Midwifery Leaders who presented to her situation reports and financial sustainability issues of the hospital.

This was during her visit to the health facility this week.

She acknowledged that Matany Hospital does a lot more than many other facilities in the country and thanked the hospital administration for stretching their funding to do all they do.

She said her Ministry would explore possibilities of supporting it to continue with the good work it is doing to save life.

The 250-bed rural hospital located in Napak District is among the 33 Private -Not-for-Profit (PNFP) hospitals in the country run under the Uganda Catholic Medical Bureau.

It offers various services including an outpatients’ department, maternity, surgical, medical, pediatric and TB wards, Ante-natal clinic, laboratory, X-ray and ultrasound, plus dental care, orthopedic and physiotherapy units.

It also has an ART clinic with a counselling unit and offers EMTCT and primary eye care services.

Matany hospital also acts as a referral unit for the Karamoja region.

Poor funding

In his report the CEO and Hospital Administrator Br. Günther Nährich highlighted the challenge of sustaining the hospital in the absence of donor funding.

He appreciated Government for the Primary Health Care (PHC) funds that are allocated to Matany Hospital since 1997.

He said other sources of funding for the hospital include user fees and income from the Nurses and Midwifery training school, but the hospital still has a funding gap to sustain its operations.

The challenges he said include keeping the structures efficient, providing the monthly salaries for the employees, providing drugs and equipment plus keeping the nursing and midwifery training school running.

The First Lady was also taken on a guided tour of the hospital by the Medical Superintendent Dr. John Bosco Nsubuga and other members of staff.

At the School of Nursing and Midwifery, she was welcomed by the tutors and students who demonstrated to her some of what they learn in the skills laboratory.

Dr. John Bosco Nsubuga reported that the health training Institution, which currently has a total of 108 students, has been in place for 31 years and needs rehabilitation.

He pointed out the need for a bigger skills laboratory that would accommodate the large number of students and also meet the Ministry of Health standards.

Dr. Nsubuga thanked Mrs. Museveni for the care she has for the people of Karamoja and for always coming in to support Matany hospital’s work.

In her report Sr. Nataline Mowo the Principal Tutor of St. Kizito Hospital Matany School of Nursing and Midwifery said for the last five years their school has registered a success rate of 100 percent and has been rated one of the best three performing HTIs at national level.

 

She however pointed out some challenges including the need for a midwifery tutor, renovation of school infrastructure and a equipping the school with computers.
