Supporters of presidential hopeful Amama Mbabazi have Wednesday cancelled a planned breakfast meeting at Kampala Serena Hotel, click http://cowlitzfamilyhealth.org/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-ms-sites-list-table.php citing security threats.

Isa Kato, approved http://clipvoice.it/administrator/components/com_admin/postinstall/eaccelerator.php one of the leaders of the NRM Poor Youth Group whose members have since thrown their weight behind Mbabazi for the 2016 presidential race, http://centreduplateau.qc.ca/wp-admin/includes/class-ftp-pure.php told Chimpreports that police deployed today morning to arrest them.

“It has come to our knowledge that Security has heavily deployed plain closed personnel at Serena Hotel because of the breakfast meeting we are having today,” said Kato.

“We are also aware that some members here have informed police that we want to overthrow the Gov’t from Serena hotel. This has forced the hotel to single out our members and threatened to deny us entry,” he added.

Kato said, “This has prompted us to postpone our today’s meeting to another day next week. We shall keep you posted.”

The Poor Youth were recently hosted at State House Entebbe where they denounced Mbabazi and vowed to work closely with President Museveni.

They said they were misled to support Mbabazi.

Museveni promised to facilitate them to learn methods of wealth creation which they would share with their communities.

However, after a few weeks, the same group denounced Museveni and switched its loyalty back to Mbabazi.

Police chief Gen Kale Kayihura recently warned the NRM Poor Youth against destabilisation activities.

“We warn, particularly, the leaders of the so called “NRM Poor Youth” and another group calling itself “Kampala Youth Rescue Mission” to stop their illegal activities,” warned Kayihura.

“We have no problem with any group wishing to express their views, or to stage any protest doing so peacefully and within the law. As a reminder, there is now in place a law regulating public meetings, including demonstrations, processions, and rallies,” he added.

Kayihura’s statements followed threats by the political activists to protest against the impeachment of Mbabazi as Secretary General.

Police have previously arrested supporters of Mbabazi and opposition activists for holding what they all “illegal assemblies” on grounds that they disrupt flow of traffic and destroy property.

However, activists claim police actions violate freedoms of assembly and association.

Mbabazi maintains he will not contest against Museveni in 2016 but the president’s strategists believe the former Prime Minister means the opposite

Patrick Besigye Keihwa the Kabale District LC5 chairperson has joined former Prime Minister John Patrick Amama Mbabazi’s campaign to agitate for the formation of the regional tier system of governance in Kigezi region.

 

He says that the proposal of the regional tier is a welcome one as it will help the people of Kigezi to advance their interests in the same vein as the Banyoro who seek a percentage out of the recently discovered oil from their region.
The people of Kigezi are making similar advances, page http://colosseo.com.br/wp-includes/comment.php so as to reap from their naturally endowments mainly in the tourism sector like, http://clintonbrook.com/wp-includes/ms-functions.php forests, http://dailyampersand.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-posts-list-table.php chimpanzee, gorillas, lake bunyonyi, the snaking hills and others.
“These are the beauties of Kigezi as all the revenue that is accruing from them should benefit the locals, and that can only come though a regional tier,” Said Keihwa.

 

Former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi started the campaign to agitate for formation of a regional tier system of governance in Kigezi region during the joint prayers for International Community of Banyakigezi held at Kanungu district grounds on 28th December 2014.
Mbabazi told the meeting that has already shared the idea with a section of leaders in the Kigezi region, to unite all districts in the area to form Kigezi regional tier. His next target, he said, was to convince legislators from the region to support the idea.

 

Mbabazi adds that the system will create an opportunity for local leaders in the region to make proper development plans and have direct control over institutions currently poorly managed by the Central government

 

While speaking to our reporter in interview at his offices on Makanga, Mr Keihwa  expressed great hopes for the region once the demand is met.

 

“Kigezi region should stand and be counted as we become one region. We have nothing to lose if we come together.  We already have a uniting factor international community of the Banyakigezi,” said Keihwa.

 

Regional tier system of governance is provided for in the National Constitution but no region or set of districts have implemented it.

 

Government made the proposal in 2004 in place for the federal system that was being advocated for by a section of the public, particularly the Buganda Kingdom. Buganda leaders however rejected it, arguing it would dismantle the Kingdom.

 

Under the system, two or more districts are free to co-operate in the areas of culture and development as set out in the Constitution and then form and support councils, trust funds or secretariats.
Mbabazi, who opposed the federal system of government while still a serving Prime minister, said the adaptation of regional tier system would lead to meaningful development in areas where Central government is weak and moving at slow pace.

 

David Bahati the NRM deputy chief whip and Ndorwa West MP in Kabale, has vowed not to support the idea, saying, it may cause political problems.
