The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) secretary general Harold Kaija has said that Uganda’s economy is on a time bomb that is soon exploding but the head of state seems to be relaxed with the prevailing situation.
Speaking while appearing on radio talk show CBS FM a local radio station in Kampala, Kaija puts into consideration the crane bank take over, eviction of vendors from Kampala streets, the high cost of living, and even the closure of Makerere University as some of the things that depict a bedridden economy.
“Ugandans are taking one meal a day, some are even surviving on water and government is not bothered. Resources are just being injected in luxuries not necessities.” Said Kaija.
He also accused President Museveni of being extravagant and wasting tax payers’ money in less developmental things.
“What is ‘Kisanja Hakuna Mchezo’ when people are dying of hunger? Ugandans need to know that Mr. Museveni spends about a billion shillings to commission a shs.500.000 project. He also leaves state house to ride a bicycle for poor and hungry Ugandans” added Kaija.
He concluded by calling upon Ugandans to pass a vote of no confidence in Museveni’s leadership by joining the defiance campaign.
