Bank of Uganda has announced that annual inflation rose from 8.8 percent to 9.1 percent in November whereas core inflation increased to 6.7 percent from 6.3 percent.

The Governor Bank of Uganda Tumusiime Mutebile was on Wednesday issuing the Monetary Policy Statement for December 2015 at a press briefing at BoU headquarters.

According to Governor Mutebile, story http://charlieacourt.com/wp-admin/includes/class-bulk-upgrader-skin.php the increase in inflation was majorly influenced by high food crop prices, increase in electricity tarrifs and effects of exhange rate depreciation.

“Amidst this rise however, monthly core inflation has stabilized in the last 3 months following an upsurge earlier this year,” he said.

The Central Bank projects that real economic growth for the 2015/16 Financial year will remain at 5 percent but citing possible downside risks resulting from the external economic turbulence.

Mutebile was skeptical that this situation could deteriorate further over the next 12 months.

On the exchange rate depreciation, he said; “The upward impact has been partly offset by much lower services inflation resulting from the tightening of monetary policy since April.”

BoU further projects that global commodity prices could further decline and access to finance for developing countries as well.

“Our current inflation forecast over 12 month horizon is lower than the estimate that was communicated in October 2015,” Mutebile noted.

“We forecast that annual core inflation will peak at around 10 percent in the third quarter of 2016 and gradually decline towards the 5 percent target over the medium term.”

The Central Bank Rate (CBR) will be maintained at 17 percent in a bid to stabilize the core inflation and returning it to the target of 5 percent over the medium.
One of the 2016 presidential candidates Maureen Kyalya has strongly condemned former Prime Minister John Patrick Amama Mbabazi, cost http://changescale.org/wp-includes/plugin.php a fellow contender, in the wake of last Sunday’s incident in which his supporters beat up those of incumbent President Yoweri Museveni in Ntungamo district.

Although the Go Forward campaign swiftly defended itself that the clash was out of provocation from the NRM youths who attacked them at their rally, Ms Kyalya pushed the entire blame onto Mbabazi who she said needed to apologize to the nation.

The NRM donning President Yoweri Museveni’s campaign t-shirts reportedly attacked Amama Mbabazi’s convoy, hurling a stone at one of his cars.

Mrs Kyalya, who took a break from the campaign trail and joined her family in the UK, stated today that as an independent presidential candidate, Mbabazi had nothing to justify prohibiting people from other parties from attending his campaign in Ntungamo.

“Mbabazi unlike Besigye and Museveni has no party. This means that every single Ugandan, regardless of political affiliation is his supporter. Therefore all the people who were beaten up were actually his supporters and they should be apologized to,” she argued.

Mrs Kyalya further accused Mbabazi of dishonesty and antagonizing the efforts of other opposition political parties.

Go Forward she said had confused all existing and established political parties by misleading their candidates to stand and promote themselves as Go Forward candidates, a party that does not exist.

“This has not only killed the opposition unity specifically between FDC and all the other parties, but has completely finished off opposition in Uganda,” she said.

Projecting that Mbabazi would soon cross back to the ruling party, Mrs Kylaya noted that the former Premier is only but a liability to the opposition.

“Go forward is now crashing and destroying the entire opposition and in the end if and when you reconcile with NRM, which is a big possibility, Uganda as a nation will have no opposition at all.”

“FDC the leading opposition party will have been put in a comma and we have already attended the funerals of UPC and DP thanks to you. I find that extremely selfish and unpatriotic,” charged the presidential candidate.

Kyalya who also sounded sympathetic to the ruling NRM government, argued Mbabazi was to blame for most of its shortcomings and that he should be last person to be fighting it.
