The Forum for Democratic party (FDC) in opposition has revealed plans to mobilise Ugandans to demand for accountability of all the funds that have been dispensed to fight COVID-19 as well as fighting insecurity in the country.
This was revealed by the FDC party president, Patrick Oboi Amuriat while addressing party members during the swearing-in of new party leaders to different party organs.
Amuriat said that despite a lot of money voted every year for Peace and Security, little is seen to be done in ensuring safety of Ugandans referring of the recent murders in Masaka district as well as other parts of the country.
“We condemn the wanton killing and murder of innocent Ugandans in greater Masaka. This is not experienced only in Masaka but we recently witnessed murders of women in Wakiso and Entebbe as well as killings in cold blood by gun men,” Amuriat said.
Amuriat said that the arrest of legislators Mohammed Ssegirinya and Allan Ssewanyana in connection to the murders of Masaka is simply a scape goat intended to blind and hoodwink Ugandans.
Amuriat said that with a lot of money voted for security and intelligence, Ugandans have continued to be killed which leaves everyone wondering how the funds are being spent.
“We shall unite as FDC and soon launch a drive to mobilize Ugandans to demand accountability from government for the funds that have so far been allocated to security and COVID-19,” Amuriat said.
On the other hand, Amuriat noted that the party won’t get tired of making a call to all democracy seeking Ugandans to join hands and push for the long-desired change.
“We are ready to work with all political parties, civil society organisations and individuals who mean well for this country but we warn that the traitors won’t be tolerated and once discovered, one would be treated as such,” Amuriat said.
