No way through for divided opposition against a tired NRM

As NRM continues to suffer from fatigue and voter apathy, as a result of long stay in power, rising cost of living, youth unemployment, corruption, high taxation, impunity, recycling of leaders, nepotism, poor remuneration of public servants, and poor service delivery that has disabled the performance of our social services, the government has instead opted for an enlarged unproductive stale public service that is basically hinged on patronage appeasement.

The observation was made by Mr. Mugoya Paul Polly, a FRONASA Veteran, and a Transformer.

Mr Mugoya says, “Uganda is a low-income country. The Social Services are at the lowest, the high cost of living, the debt burden in our necks, corruption is at its peak, etc”.

In a dossier he shared with our reporter yesterday, “his disappointment however is the opposition who he described as tired because they have failed to do their diligent duty of checks and balances.

In reference to the Mpuuga Money heist. He said, “What is the justification for awarding a few individuals colossal sums on Service Awards? This is a very poor country. Its citizens are living in abject poverty and many go with one meal a day. Even our foreign reserves have dropped to $3.3 billion from $4 billion. We are even struggling to meet our scheduled payments. Isn’t the Parliament of Uganda plundering the people who elected it”.

Mugoya alleges that, “the NRM government for the first time has both a Constitutional President and a named co-president, Gen. Muhoozi, to challenge this unconstitutional development, where the country now has 2 Presidents.

He says, “The recent structural changes and realignments of positions in the UPDF, Gen. Muhoozi’s position as the CDF, has been strengthened, this has given him more powers by CIC, which a preserve of sitting President”.

According to him, “This means our President has abdicated his responsibilities as the Head of the Armed Forces to the Army Commander which by nature of command instantly makes him a co-president”.

He added, “The endless unabating wrangles within the opposition where leaders are busily preoccupied with the scramble for power amongst themselves, has allowed President Museveni to sneak in these changes. Please take note, that the CIC of the Armed Forces takes control of not only the Army but also the Police, Prison, and other armed sections of security”.

Mugoya says, “I’m not opposed to Gen Muhoozi becoming President but the normal norms, and procedures as the law stipulates, have to be observed, as safeguards, to avoid a repeat of the past bad history and chaos ahead”.

“We should not leave loopholes that a rogue person can take advantage of to destabilize our country. This is just a cautionary warning. It can be taken or ignored, it’s not not mandatory”.
