Mukono municipality member of parliament Betty Nambooze has said president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni need to pushed out of power as soon as possible in order to have a better Uganda.
Appearing on NBS morning breeze, Nambooze called on the people of Uganda to rise up and push president out of the state house.
“I Kindly beg Ugandans to not focus on the 2021 elections, the totality of the election process will be fake if we wait for the ballot. People shd take the power in their hands. Article one of the constitution states that power belongs to the people,” Nambooze said.
She urged opposition members to unite and focus on common enemy who is president Museveni rather than fighting each other.
“At the moment, the opposition is very strong because we have the majority of Ugandans on our side. Even in parliament, the opposition is growing. We can operate under different command as long as we’re pushing in the same direction,”
She adde: I think Gen. Muntu has just booked himself a chair at the high table, he’ll represent himself as a party president. Beyond that, I don’t see anything he’s done and I don’t see a problem with him doing that.
She stated Uganda should prepare for transition government through dialogue adding that, Uganda is not ready for another war.
“I’m happy that the opposition has come up with benchmarks for the dialogue. We need it because we can no longer dialogue through parliament because it has been taken over by one man who bribes the MPs. The only viable direction for this country if we’re not going to go into war is the dialogue but it should also have clear guidelines,” she asserted.
She continues: One of the issues we have to address is a transition, we want Mr. Museveni to come and tell us how he is going to hand over power, that’s what we want. We shall not be able to discuss transition when Mr. Museveni is still in power, once we have dealt with that then we can talk about everything else like the security challenges, land, and so many others. The biggest issue is to have a transition and have people in offices by the power of the people. People power is our wave as opposition, we got a new addition in Hon. Kyagulanyi. We’re moving towards a crisis as a country if we don’t move to arrest it. Mr. Museveni has lost direction, we need to push towards a transition.
