Aruu county member of parliament hon Odonga Otto said Uganda in a sorrow state as there is general breakdown of state institutions and the country is only run by president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as a sole decision maker.
Appearing on NBS frontline on Thursday evening, Otto said the constitution has been thrown under carpet and only martial law is working in the country.
“We should accept that there’s a big problem with this country, all the safety nets have been removed from the constitution. Now we have a martial law because recruiting LDUs is by default martial law. The whole country is like a casino, we’re operating in a suicidal way,” Otto said.
He decried the rampant corruption in the country adding that everything in the country is privatized rendering the country useless.
“The society should protect the weakest, if we don’t corruption will start from the grass roots. In this country, everything is privatized and this is very dangerous,” Otto added.
He urged the leaders the country to country to urgently address the issue that is affecting the country as the country prepares to celebrate the 56th independence.
“I would think that we need to address 2 challenges, one is population growth, the rate at which the population is growing is worrying because the streets will wear down if not controlled. The second issue is ethnicity, we’re seeing a wider ethnic division than that during our forefather’s time,” Otto continues.
He warned president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni of unemployment and poverty in the country stating that it would lead to end of his presidency if not addressed.
