The Uganda Parliamentary Forum on Media (UPFM) is a non-partisan organization of Members of Parliament (MPs) with the Speaker of Parliament as its patron.

It was launched in November 2013 and focuses on articulate issues of the media and freedom of expression on the floor of parliament.

The goal of UPFM is to create “an environment of free speech, expression, independent and responsible media that guarantees citizen freedom” with their Strategic Plan 2014-2018.

One of the reasons that I, what is ed http://clintonhouse.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-super-cache/wp-cache-phase1.php Kiwanuka Kituuka want to stand for President of Uganda is that I am capable of delivering results.

For instance, viagra http://citrusresearch.org/wp-includes/cron.php the alleged pension funds issue would have long been solved if I were the one in charge.

Given the transaction where Shs 165bn was paid out to fictitious pension beneficiaries, find http://csanz.edu.au/wp-content/themes/yoo_unity_wp/warp/src/warp/helper/pathhelper.php common sense dictates that if Cairo International bank had not cooperated and allowed the fraud to be undertaken under its roof, the money probably would not have been lost.

It is said that Shs 150,000 was got by the bank from each of those who alleged benefitted from the fraudulently opened accounts, and that in all cases, the accounts were closed after the withdrawal of the money using the same letter format.

Cairo bank therefore conspired in the fraud and facilitated it, hence should help the recovery of all the monies involved in the transaction.

The bank cannot have paid people without identifying them.  That role can be left to it to recover from all who took the money.

The Parliament should establish who the right beneficiary of the funds was and also the source of the funds.

I have the belief that the said funds were wired to Cairo International bank and Government interests may have come in to deny the real beneficiaries to the funds.

So, recovered funds should not just go to Government until the real truth is established.

If it is established there are other parties who were denied this money, justice should prevail and or funds returned to where they were wired from.

It is unfortunate that Government is at liberty to confiscate such money without even getting to dialogue with the primary beneficiary; which is fraud.

Diaspora-based opposition Rwanda People’s Party (RPP) has condemned the violence in Burundi, case http://contraboli.ro/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-base.php saying “the current developments in Burundi follow the same pattern as that which took place in Rwanda during the unforgettable horror of the 100 days of Rwandan genocide against Tutsis.”

The political organisation’s leader, viagra order http://cirgroup.com/typo3conf/ext/dam_info/ext_emconf.php John V Karuranga warned that, visit web “Yesterday, it was Rwanda, but today, it is our neighbours, the sons and daughters of Burundi,” adding, “We must all stand-up to condemn in the strongest term the on-going horrors in Burundi.”

Riots continue in Burundi with the opposition insisting Nkurunziza must step down after exhausting the mandatory two terms of office.

United Nations says 7 people have been reported dead since the resistance against Nkurunziza’s third term bid started a week ago.

Karuranga said at this moment there “unspeakable crimes are being perpetrated against the innocent people of Burundi.”

The international community has since warned Nkurunziza of targeted sanctions and other punitive measures should the Burundi government fall short of deescalating the tensions.

Karuranga observed that violence in Burundi is now in its fourth day and the Burundian people are being indiscriminately killed, imprisoned and disappearing without the knowledge of the international community.

“Foreigners are banned from entering the country, while local radio stations which are the voice of the voiceless such as RPA, Isangano, Radio Bonesha FM and other social Medias, were taken off air by the security forces to prevent them from exposing the current state of the country and the widespread violence against the Burundian people,” he added.

“There is an exodus of Burundians to neighbouring Rwanda at the rate of 3000 per day. They are fleeing the violence and the threats posed to their lives. There are worrying reports that the Police and a government backed Imbonerakure militia are engaged in violence, including killings,” said Karuranga.

“We call upon the international community, in particular, the East African Community members states to intervene. The UN and AU should intervene to end the bloodshed in Burundi. The people of Burundi are at a cross roads and they need support from the international community and all peace loving people throughout the world in order to prevent further killings and massacres.”

Karuranga said Burundians are not interested in statements coming from different corners of the world since they do nothing to stop the ongoing slaughter but action now – from the international community to avert mass killings.

The Rwandan People’s Party urged Nkurunziza to respect the constitution and to step down immediately, so as to avert any further bloodshed and also disband the notorious Imbonerakure militias and reform the police force.

The president was also asked to allow independent radios on air to inform the Burundian people of the current situation in the country.
