The Deputy Speaker of Parliament Jacob Oulanyah has asked Ugandans to reject violence that can plunge the country into war.
Oulanyah made the call while presiding over a thanksgiving ceremony organized by National Resistance Movement Party Treasurer Rose Namayanja and her mother Catherine Namirembe. The function was held on Sunday at Kalagi village in Kasangombe Sub County in Nakaseke district.
Namayanja survived a nasty accident in 2015 at Kigoogwa village along Kampala-Gulu highway. She was heading to a fundraising ceremony for the reconstruction of Buddabugya Health Center III in Nakaseke district.
Oulanyah wondered why Ugandans have become so violent to the extent of wanting to kill each other yet there are big things which can unite them to work for the development of the country.
Oulanyah also condemned the youths who are standing for nothing but money for survival.
He noted that what might be sparking off the violence is something very seasonal there by calling upon to preach the spirit of brotherhood since they still have life to live after today.
