Leave Issues of Uganda to Ugandans, Ofwono lampoons European Union

Ofwono Opondo

The government spokesperson Ofono Opondo has lampooned the European Union Bobi Wine statement issued during the weekend.

Speaking to Journalists at Media Center early this morning, Ofwono noted that Uganda is not a playground for everyone citing that issues of Uganda should be left to be sorted by Ugandans.

Ofwono also said that Uganda will not bow down to pressure from foreign states since Uganda is a sovereign state.

“The European Union is not going through the right channels to address the matter opting to use other means to peddle into Ugandan politics. Uganda needs no lectures on democracy and how to govern itself.” He stated.

Opondo further urges local politicians to desist from being used by foreign powers to antagonize the country noting that the state will not hesitate to use available means to protect its citizens.

The European Union issued a statement calling for dropping of charges against the Kyadondo east MP Robert Kyagulanyi among other suspects arrested during the Arua by election.

The EU parliament last week in Brussels-Belgium asked Ugandan courts to drop the charges currently pressed against the MPs among other common citizens totaling to 35.
