A group of youths from the Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] have petitioned the party NEC regarding the operations and constitutionality of the opposition alliance TDA.

The group led by youth delegate for Mpigi district Thomas Kayanja said the structures and processes of TDA are at variance with democratic principles and also in conflict with the national constitution and the Political Parties and Organizations Act.

“The Democratic Alliance was formed on the ground of fighting for transparence, page http://cosmoveda.de/wp-content/plugins/woocommerce/templates/emails/customer-refunded-order.php accountability and honesty but this has not been realized owing to what happened last week, viagra approved http://demo.des.net.id/sejahteraabadi/wp-includes/rss.php ” Kayanja said on Tuesday at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi.

“The deadline for returning the nomination forms was Thursday and was extended to mid-day of the following day but to our dismay, pharm one of the contenders failed to return the forms on time .The TDA officials waited until they officially received him past 11pm which indicated a bend of the rules to favor some individuals.”

The youths expressed fear that TDA has no experience in handling the ‘thorny issue’ of joint candidates, noting that the alliance rather compounds confusion to the detriment of parties.

According to the youths, TDA seems not to emphasize the struggle for free and fair elections yet it is the basis for the forthcoming 2016 general elections.

“We want to remind the officials of TDA that our party has had well organized free and fair elections where we elected our party flag bearer. We therefore would want to see him subjected to free and fair processes unlike what is happening where some individuals are favored.”

“We want them to tell us how they are going to conduct free and fair processes when preferential treatment has already been accorded to some of the candidates in the race. We warn them that anything done outside the set rules and regulations is illegal and we shall not entertain it,” the Mpigi district FDC youth delegate warned.

On the admission of former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi and his Go forward pro change pressure group, the youth decried what they termed as double standards and favoritism by TDA officials having left out embattled Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago.

“TDA refused to admit Lukwago and his pressure group because he was still an active Democratic Party member .Why then admit Mbabazi who proudly admits being an NRM member with the party card? Aren’t those double standards?”

The youth said that the FDC National Executive Committee should consider pulling out of the TDA for abrogating its own rules very early or else the opposition party should expect more than that in future.

Independent 2016 Presidential candidate Hon Amama Mbabazi has Tuesday suspended all his nationwide consultative meetings ‘until further notice.’

Mbabazi’s communications director Ms Josephine Mayanja Nkangi revealed that the former premier was compelled to halt his program to attend to new developments.

After his failed rallies in the eastern districts of Soroti and Jinja, order http://chienyenthinh.com/modules/mod_k2_user/tmpl/login.php which were foiled by police, http://deltadiner.com/wp-content/plugins/nextgen-gallery/products/photocrati_nextgen/modules/mvc/module.mvc.php Mbabazi was slated to head to northern Uganda.

The second phase of his consultation meetings according his communication to police, http://comotenerunabuenaereccion.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-ms-themes-list-table.php would be in the districts of Arua, Gulu and Lira.

Yesterday Monday, Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura while speaking in a meeting called by Electoral Commission officials, said the police force would not permit Mbabazi’s meetings because they do not conform to the guidelines set by the Electoral Commission and Presidential Elections Act on conducting consultations.

Kayihura said the law empowers police to “disperse unlawful assemblies”, adding the law enforcement body is “very lenient even in circumstances when provoked because in the West, once you attack a police officer they shoot you.”

It’s on this basis that Mbabazi decided to suspend his meetings, to first hold more talks with police officials.

“Amama would like to engage the police in a meaningful discussion about their use of live ammunition and tear gas on peaceful, unarmed civilians who gather to receive his message with a view of wresting a firm promise from them to cease these actions,” she said.

On the other hand, Mbabazi was compelled to halt his consultations to give more time to the democratic alliance [TDA]  program, according to Ms Nkangi.

“The program of The Democratic Alliance in which he is fully participating requires him to be present for all the processes being undertaken.  As such, he is unable to go upcountry.”

Once these issues are resolved, she said a new Consultations calendar will be released.

Anti-corruption High court judge Moses Gidudu has set October 7th 2015 as the date to start the hearing of a case where three former Ministry of Public Service officials are facing six charges relating to causing of financial loss, nurse http://danmarknorge.org/wp-content/plugins/steam-group-viewer/scripts/steamgroupwidget.php abuse of office and false accounting leading to loss of 88 billion shillings.

The three accused are Jimmy Rwamafa the Permanent secretary for ministry of public service, try Stephen Kunsa Kiwanuka former Director Research and Development and Christopher Obey former Principle Accountant in Ministry of Public Service

The trio pleaded not guilty of all the charges against them.

State prosecution led by Babrah Kawuma asked court for two weeks to enable them furnish the defense side with all documents containing evidence to be used in prosecuting this case.

Nsubuga Mubiru one of the defense counsels had asked court to consider a fresh oral bail application for their client which justice Gidudu declined to entertain.

“In not more than two weeks my learned sister Justice Tibulya in her lengthy ruling declined to grant bail to the accused, the circumstances for which bail wasnot granted are still the same, so i cant entertain bail at this moment because it will appear like you want to determine personal behaviors of judges which cannot be tolerated in judiciary” advised Gidudu

Justice Gidudu went further and tasked the state to be ready to proceed on the next court sitting because failure to this the defense will be free to submit in a fresh bail application.

On 7th October the state prosecution is expected to produce their first witness and assessors will be sworn in on that date.

The prosecution alleges that during the financial years of 2010/11 and 2011/12, the accused in various employment capacities did an act of prejudicial to interest of their employers by making budgetary provisions of over 88billion to Nssf as contribution for servants yet they knew it that civil servants are exempted from it.
