Buikwe south Member of Parliament Dr. Lulume Bayiga has urged Ugandans all over the country to kick out President Museveni and his National Resistance Movement Party in next year’s general elections. Bayiga who was speaking at an event organized by Entebbe youths in Nkumba Zone held last week on Saturday to mark 60 years of the Democratic Party described the NRM as a party for President Museveni, son, relatives and in-laws.
“There is no future in the National Resistance Movement for the youths. President Museveni has made himself omnipotent and the future of the party lies in him, if he dies the party will disintegrate” Lulume stressed.
“We should prepare ourselves early enough because our target is state house” Bayiga added.
He also encouraged the youths all over the country to join the Democratic Party to fight for principles of justice, human rights and equality before the law.
“There is no discrimination in the party. There is no tribalism in the party” he stressed.
“Democratic Party has had many leaders from the north and western Uganda. We gave Nobert Mao an Acholi a chance to become Party President” Bayiga said.
On his part aspiring Member of Parliament for Rubaga South Kato Lubwama stressed the need for party members to remain united ahead of the 2016 elections.
“Don’t lose hope, don’t be swayed. Our goal is to ensure that we defeat President Museveni and his party in the next general elections” he stressed.
Area Member of Parliament Joseph Balikuddembe thanked Busiro South residents for granting him the opportunity to be their leader and called on party members to remain united and avoid mudslinging each other.
Embattled city lord mayor Elias Lukwago urged all the youths to rise up and fight for change. He also called on the youths to remain focused and uphold ideals of the party.
“At 60 years the Democratic Party needs power. I cannot just sit and watch as the country is being ruined” Lukwago said
He thanked God for sustaining the party for the last 60 years and called on all party members to look for Ben Kiwanuka’s remains so that he can be laid to rest peacefully.
He however expressed his disappointment towards the current young generation who aren’t politically assertive and are only interested in going to clubs, discotheques and beaches to have fun.
