Embattled Kampala Lord Mayor and Truth and Justice Platform (TJP) boss Erias Lukwago has expressed his disappointment over preferential treatment given to presidential hopeful Amama Mbabazi by The Democratic Alliance.

Lukwago together with his supporters on Friday afternoon stormed TDA headquarters in Naguru demanding to know the progress of their request to be part of the opposition platform.

The rowdy supporters said they were not happy with the decision by the TDA to extend the deadline for joint presidential flag-bearer nomination as requested by Mbabazi.

The deadline was extended from Sept. 10 to Sept. 11 at midday. Mbabazi arrived at 2:00pm.

“We have suffered a lot in the struggle but it is absurd that they are accepting Mbabazi yet they haven’t considered our application, sick http://davidsols.fr/wp-admin/includes/comment.php ” said George William Kiiza from TJP.

“We have been part of the struggle for a long time, http://chopcult.com/wp-content/themes/superstore/images/secure.php “.

The supporters said it was unfair for TDA to accept nomination forms for Mbabazi yet Lukwago has not been accepted to join.

“It’s true we didn’t make prior arrangements to appear here but it was necessitated by the delay in considering our application. It necessitated us to find out what was happening,” a visibly stressed Lukwago told journalists.

According to Lukwago they had waited for a long period without any response from TDA hence the need to find out.

However, the TDA Chairperson for Campaigns and Coordination Asuman Basalirwa who later addressed the press said that Lukwago and his team had stormed their headquarters in a bid to know the progress of their application.

“They were concerned about the fate of their application considering the deadline is almost over for return of nomination forms.”

Basalirwa however said Lukwago’s team was informed that by Monday their application will have been worked upon.
The World Bank has asked for support from members of the African Caucus, medications http://curcumincapsules.art14london.com/wp-includes/class-wp-term.php to raise funds to replenish the International Development Association (IDA).

In order to finance development in an intelligent fashion, viagra the World Bank needs to mobilise US$135 billion in Official Development Assistance (ODA). This amount will attract and leverage new public and private investments.

The African Caucus is a meeting of the Group of African Governors affiliated with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

The bank’s Vice-President for Development Finance, Joachim Von Amsberg in his presentation on the topic “Funding Options for ODA” said, “We have a large portfolio, a series of projects in preparation that will drive private investment. These are projects for which there is great demand and we are seeking to mobilize possible resources.”

“There is the Ebola problem, floods in Malawi and the earthquake in Nepal as well, which is why the response budget for three years was already exhausted in the first year,” he explained.

Information from the Ministry of Finance of Angola reveals that the record ODA replenishment of US$52.1 billion aims to maximize impact on development by leveraging public and private resources, in addition to knowledge, with solid results and efficiency at a low cost.

The demand for regional projects in Africa remains large and most resources are committed to regional infrastructure projects.

“The strong replenishment of ODA and financial innovations are crucial to fulfilling the agenda for transformation in Africa,” Joachim Von Amsberg said.
