Uganda president Yoweri Museveni has blamed his political opponents as major problem that is facing the country economic growth. In reference to jailed Kyadondo East member of parliament Bobi Wine, Museveni said that the groups trying to destabilize Uganda are being funded by foreign agencies who do not want to see Uganda develops. He also revealed that Uganda has been exporting more good to neighboring Kenya than what Kenya export to Uganda.
“Yesterday while talking about the Security forces and the Bobi Wine group, I made reference to financiers of rioters who hope to damage the economy of Uganda which is, finally, taking off by developing fast.” Museveni said in a statement released on Friday afternoon.
He went a head to list three issues that needs to be solved. He cited high rate of crimes which has resulted into death of a number of high profile individuals in the country, political indiscipline by opposition political actors and corruption by government officials as the major problems affecting Uganda.
We have just three issues to solve; Crime in the towns which we are addressing by installing cameras in Kampala; political indiscipline like we saw in Jinja East, Bugiri and Arua and finally corruption.
