Kabale and Rukiga District residents have credited NRM party for its high level of corruption.
Speaking to our reporter in town, the residents termed NRM’s 36 year of Anniversary as years of Dictatorship, corruption and Embezzlement of Government funds.
Wilkins Arinaitwe the chairperson UPC Kabale district said the Ruling party stole guns from UPC and started using them to rob people’s Property.
He added, it’s so unfortunate that those that started with the 10points program the party is slowly weeding them out.
“I remember one time during Election campaign, Ruhakana Rugunda told people that we have people from Government and those from Govermenta,’’ Wilkins noted.
Wilkins added that it’s absurd to find Kabale Municipality doesn’t have any single Health center 3 and there is no referral hospital which was constructed under this regime.
Wilkens said that if one is to make research among the big people including the MPs, none have their children in Government schools.
“NRM Government brought USE and UPE, Why is it that parents and Teachers are not taking their children to these schools? It means something is wrong in these schools,” he added.
He said the Party can’t do anything until the community stages a strike giving an example of Kabale- Kisoro road, Kabale Municipality Roads which were worked on after the Authorities threatened to stage a demonstration.
He added that a lot of Radio stations have been closed in Kabale (voice of Kigezi when it hosted Mugisha Muntu and Hope Radio when it Hosted DR Kiiza Besigye) and that Two Radio Presenters have been forced to exit Kabale.
Hamuza Jungu Mechanic in Kabale Garage Street said those to celebrate the NRM anniversary are those that started with the President.
Hamuza pinned the NRM Government for not following up its project on the potential beneficiaries.
He asked why the NRM Government project has continued fading and no action is being done.
Hamuza said that NRM Party is now Fully Occupied with the Mafias who have practiced a high level of corruption and Embezzlement of Government funds.
The Kabale District vice chairperson Ms. Miria Akakwansa Tugume who doubles as the councilor LCV for Kahugye and Butanda Sub Counties applauded the 36 years of anniversary as years of empowering women in the county.
She added, women nowadays occupy big offices and give in their opinions and views unlike in the past where they were always in their homes cooking for their Husbands and not allowed to participate in any communal activity.
The Rukiga District LCV Chairperson Robert Mbabazi Kakwerere said that the NRM Government has fulfilled the 10 points programme.
He added, the ruling party has brought democracy and now people are free to elect their own leaders.
Kakwerere said the NRM part has constructed schools, Hospitals and Roads unlike in the past where it was difficult to get one who was educated.
He however called upon the Government to establish Electricity in Kamwezi Sub County.
