Ugandan president is discounting his own achievements by hanging onto power, says the Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party.
According to the FDC deputy Secretary General in charge of administration, Harold Kaija, Museveni’s value expired as soon as he clocked 11 years in power.
He made the remarks while appearing on KFM a local radio station analysing Museveni’s 100 days in power.
Museveni has been in power for approximately 11,092 days.
President yoweri Museveni has been in power for more than 30years. He was in February this year elected to lead for more 5 years as his last constitutional term in office as he will be more than 75 years (age limit).
FDC’s Kizza Besigye challenges the results calling for an independent audit saying president Museveni cheated his way to victory of the highly contested elections.
There are also reported underground campaigns to have the constitutional presidential age limit lifted so as to allow president Museveni stand in the 2021 elections.
Cordinator at NGO Forum Job Kijja blamed Museveni’s long stay in power in MPs who campaigned for the lift presidential term limit.
But Bulisa County MP Birahwa Mukitale said the civil society and the media are naive by focussing all their efforts on parliament.
According to him, the media and CSO tend to focus on trivial issues in parliament like the recent plan to buy them Shs200m car instead of focusing president who moves with a huge convoy.
“The media and the CSOs lack civic competence and in a way attack parliament unfairly,” he said.
