Former army commander General Mugisha Muntu has warned people handling the affairs of the country to stop taking back the country to back days. Speaking during the frontline Television show on Thursday night, the former opposition Forum for Democratic Change president asked Ugandans to look to concentrate and put more energy on liberate the country other than thinking of 2021 general election. He was responding to Government spoke person Ofwon Pondo who had said that, more crimes were committed during Muntu time as the army commander.
“When issues come up on what’s happening now, Ofwono Opondo goes back to the past. You mean 32 years later, you would want to do things similar to how they were then!? Muntu wondered.
He wondered whether those serving the current regime are comfortable with what is taking place in the country at the moment.
“Are you Ofwono Opondo comfortable with what is happening today? Isn’t there a point where regardless of our political divide, we must all face the same issues, aren’t you aware that there’s anxiety and change could easily be mismanaged?” Muntu added.
Muntu further added that change in any country is important for peace and development and called on president Yoweri Museveni to step down for another person to take the country forward.
“However good a leader is, there comes a time when another person must come in and all you can do is strengthen the institutions.” Muntu emphasized.
He asked Ugandans to use non-violent means to remove president Museveni from office saying it is tact tic that NRM do not understand. Muntu also said that during the promulgation of 1995 constitution, they decided to put two safety valves which included the age and term limit saying that all the two safety valves have been removed from the constitution and it is the reason to rise up against the government.
