Go Forward Manifesto

Fellow Ugandans:
I  greet  you  in  Yumbe  and  Kaabong,  in  Hoima and Busia, in Bushenyi and Kamuli and in every household that sits on this favoured land. I greet you  in  neighbouring  Kenya  and  Rwanda,  and  in far away Beijing, London and Boston.

Wherever you are, we need to look to the future. This  is  the  task  that  what  we,  The  Democratic Alliance (Uganda), have undertaken in the last few months  whilst  putting  together  this  manifesto.

But this is not something only our leaders must consider,  it  is  also  our  task  as  Ugandans.  It  is the  duty  that  each  of  us  as  citizens  owe  to  our children and grandchildren, to the children of our neighbours,  to  our  respective  communities  and to the generations to come.

Uganda  at  53  years  of  age  has  come  a  long way from the time when Africa was a continent of  kingdoms  and  self-governing  nations,  clans and  kinsfolk.  In  these  53  years  we  have  known violence,  terror  and  death.  But  we  have  also learned  that  it  is  possible  to  have  peace,  calm and  longer  life.  And  although  we,  as  a  country,
are  not  where  we  want  to  be,  it  is  important  to recognise  that  our  former  presidents  have,  in their own ways, contributed to our advancement as a nation. Still, the time has come to take this country in a new direction.

It is time to mature. It  is  time  to  individually  and  collectively  hold ourselves to a higher standard. It  is  time  to  build  trust  and  confidence  in  our society.

Trust  between  citizens  and  the  State; between  ethnic  groupings  and  social  classes; trust  among  political  parties  and  various government  and  non-government  institutions and organisations.

Building this trust is no easy task. It will take time and  will  be  a  result  of  accomplishments  made, goals achieved and promises kept. The best way for us to start this process is to understand what is expected of each other. The citizens must know what  the  government  can  and  cannot  do  for them.

The government, in turn, must understand what its role is in the life of every Ugandan and then endeavour, to the best of its ability, to fulfil that  role.  Communication  is  key,  as  it  is  in  any relationship.  As  such,  before  we  present  our manifesto, we will present to you our pledges.

After  our  pledges  and  promises,  our  manifesto. This is our plan for the developments we would like to achieve in the future; the plans we have set in  place  to  create  new,  and  strengthen  existing institutions that will help organise our society for the comfort and safety of our nationals; the steps we  will  take  to  transform  the  economy  so  that all  our  citizens  can  participate  and  contribute through their own work effort; the initiatives we propose to ensure that the Rule of Law becomes a cornerstone of the functionality of this country.

Furthermore,  our  manifesto  includes  plans to  ensure  sure  that  security  services  are  well equipped,  adequately  remunerated  and  that their  main  goal  is  the  protection  of  Ugandan citizens.  You  will  read  about  our  plans  in  the healthcare  sector;  you  will  see  that  we  believe an individual’s good health is not only a human right but a requirement for the prosperity of our country Uganda.
