NRM is a hyena, opposition faulted for losing togikwatako grip

FDC Deputy Spokesperson Harold Kaija

Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] deputy secretary general, Harold Kaija, says he feels pity for Ugandans who are not saddened by the current political situation.

“These issues can’t fail to make you sad. I really feel pity for someone who is not feeling sad about the political situation in this country,” he was Sunday appearing on NBS TV “Eagle” programme.

According to Kaija, these issues are not only for the opposition.

“Museveni’s government is a hyena. Hyena can’t get satisfied,” he said, adding that Ugandans have realised the level where this country has reached and now is the time for them to participate.

NRM youth league mobiliser for Sembabule district, David Kabanda, said the day some of the MPs went for inter-parliamentary games, is the same day Museveni called Oboth Oboth [Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee chair] to meet the legal committee.

“While they were scoring goals, Museveni was busy scoring political goals,” Kabanda said.

He recalled that Democratic Party whip in Parliament and Kalungu West MP, Joseph Gonzaga Ssewungu wasn’t even on the list of the MPs who were suspended from Parliament.

“Kato Lubwama was in the corner dancing calypso. These MPs making noise will not even be seen at the parade against age limit,” he noted.

According to Kabanda, opposition doesn’t have an agenda.

“They were running around with “my life, my land’ campaign when the government was busy cooking the age limit amendment,” he lashed out.

He added: “They were now becoming too much on age limit and now the 7-year term limit has kicked in.”

But opposition says it has lined up “Red Week” #Togikwatako activities to reject the report by the committee approving the removal of the age limit clause.
