FDC Western Region chairman, sickness http://centerforblackbelt.org/wp-includes/class-wp-customize-section.php Amanya Mushega has condemned the increased political fights in Uganda, http://contentisbae.com/wp-includes/class-wp-taxonomy.php saying the time has come to get rid of winner-takes-it-all-mentality for the nation’s stability and prosperity.

Mushega said, “All members of political parties need to avoid fights and conflicts. Focus on doing things that don’t promote or benefit you as individuals but for the future generation so as to have a good and peaceful political environment”.

He added, “If Ugandan politicians were behaving like sportsmen who shake hands whether they have won or lost a match, there would be a healthy competition that enables growth and development in our country”.

The former Education Minister’s remarks come against the backdrop of calls for dialogue between opposition and government on the country’s future.

Some radical opposition figures want a total disbandment of the Electoral Commission and the president’s abdication while the moderates have suggested reforms.

Mushega has always been viewed as a moderate politician whose institutional memory of Uganda’s liberation struggles and political processes remains crucial in bridging the gap between opposition and the ruling government.

The former NRA war combatant explained that political conflicts cripple the country’s development and service delivery.

Mushega was on Wednesday speaking at the opening of the National Consultative Forum (NCF) sensitization workshop for leaders of Mid-Western region at Kalya Courts in Fort Portal.

He further warned against sectarianism in politics which he said will divide the nation and cultivate ground for ethnic violence in future.

EC boss, Eng Badru Kiggundu said, “Uganda is very young as far as democracy issues are concerned. As the 2016 general elections draw closer, there is need for all political parties to remain peaceful and tolerant especially during the campaigns.”

Eng. Kiggundu urged politicians to learn from NCF which criticizes and appreciates government’s work before getting to the grassroots to sensitize locals on policy frameworks.

Kabarole district chairman Mr Richard Rwabuhinga urged media practitioners to observe objectivity, fair and balance reporting during the elections to prevent chaos.
