Opposition Democratic Party has implored President Yoweri Museveni to respect the law or else face people power as premised in the Constitution.
Addressing journalists at the party headquarters in Kampala this morning, Publicity Secretary Kenneth Paul Kakande said the country has a supreme law and that the president should put that into consideration.
“This is a strong warning that he gets back on the legal rails and accordingly forgets the disreputable bush gimmicks,” Kakande said, adding: “In case he does not reform, we shall not hesitate to tell the nation our next move.”
According to the DP, Uganda is signatory to various international organisations and instruments like the African Charter on Human and Peoples Rights, and that in case President Museveni doesn’t adhere to their appeal, they will seek intervention.
On the attacks in Kasese and Bundibugyo, Mr Kakande asked Museveni to ‘swallow his pride and accept that Kasese voted in favour of the opposition’.
“The President does not recognize non-NRM supporters as legitimate leaders,” Mr Kakande said before imploring the president to ‘stop thinking that cultural institutions should be serving his interests instead of their primary interests and the ones of their own people’.
“The President preaches integration into a wider East Africa Community; he is here back home involved in the balkanization of long already united societies. We, therefore, hope that the President isn’t into the delusions of thinking that everyone in this country is or should be a servant at his table,” Kakande told the media.
