Uganda Under Leadership Of Thieves – Bishop Niringiye
Retired Kampala bishop Zac Niringiye has attacked Uganda’s leadership saying the East African nation is under the leadership of thieves.
Niringiye made these remarks during the Grand Citizens Debate organised to assess the first 100 days of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party held at Golf Course Hotel in the capital, Kampala.
“Uganda is under the leadership of thieves… State House, Parliament have become centres of fraud,” the retired prelate said.
NRM’s deputy Secretary General, Richard Todwong, Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party President Mugisha Muntu, Democratic Party President Norbert Mao and government spokesperson, Ofwono Opondo were some of the panelists at the debate that sought to examine’s NRM’s progress in its first 100 days.
Niringiye added, “You don’t expect a President that came to power fraudulently to deliver anything but fraud.”
On his part, Muntu who once served as army commander in President Yoweri Museveni’s government said Ugandans should not expect anything productive from this government saying it has run out of ideas.
“Whether its 100 days or 1000 years, toy cannot do the same thing and expect different results. At Museveni’s age, he cannot change his micromanagement style,” the FDC president said.
Todwong shot back saying, “You have elected the same gov’t and same President for the last 5 terms, what new thing do you expect? We have been building on the foundation we have had in place for several years.”
