The Kyadondo East Member of parliament, Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has called upon all Ugandans to join hands and fight the Museveni rule in 2017 because their legislators showed them that they represent their own personal interests instead of the views of the people who sent them to power.
While congratulating Ugandans upon completing 2017 which he defined as a difficult year, Bobi wine blamed the government for spending a lot of money on the age limit bill which could have been used to for other developmental activities.
“When you look at the amount of money spent on this Bill and compare that to how many things that money would do for our citizens, you cannot help but wonder what kind of people manage our affairs,” said Hon. Kyagulanyi.
Kyagulanyi further added that it was very abnormal for the NRM and other rebel MPS to pass the bill and also increase their years of rule which according to him is a curse both to the MPs and the nation. He believes that the manner in which the bill was passed was very illegal and against the voice of 85% Ugandans who were against the amendment.
“Now to crown up this state of affairs, our Parliament which spent almost half of the year bickering over the Age Limit Bill passed it in total disregard of basic constitutional principles. Most NRM legislators and a few other traitors voted to remove age limits in our Constitution and make President Museveni life president. When you look at the amount of money spent on this Bill and compare that to how many things that money would do for our citizens, you cannot help but wonder what kind of people manage our affairs. Our legislators did not think about over 85% of our people who were clearly opposed to the Bill. As if under a curse, they even voted to extend their term by two years!” Bobi wine condemned.
Much more, Bobi Wine alleged that the country has gone from bad to worse and therefore citizens should make decisions that can lift the country from its collapsing stage.
“So our governance system has gone from bad to worse and therefore, Ugandans should prepare themselves for tough times if they do not make tough decisions,” Bobi wine added.
Hon. Kyagulanyi has further added that Ugandans should remain hopeful in this New Year and continue to play their role in securing a brighter future for themselves and other generations to come.
