Opposition Forum for Democratic Change FDC has attributed the delay in disposing off the election petitions at the appeals court to the out going deputy chief justice Steven Kavuma who they accuse of un transparent in executing his duty.
Addressing a news conference at the FDC party headquarters in najjankumbi, the acting party president Hon. Alice Alaaso accused the appeal’ court of deal darling and sitting on the election appeals despite the stipulated six months of disposing of such matters.
She thus appealed to the incoming deputy chief justice Alphonse Owiny Dollo to clean up the mess and the Chief Justice Bart Katureebe to follow up on his circular he issued indicating that all such petitions should be disposed off by 31 July a date that is long overdue and take relevant action.
In the sameway Alaaso revealed that despite the challenges in the law for the local council one, village and parish committee elections where electorate will be required to line behind the candidate of their own choice, FDC will not boycott them since they know the disastrous outcomes of boycotting elections in Uganda.
It is on that note Alaaso appealed to the FDC members to offer themselves and support their candidates.
She appealed to Ugandans to resist bribe and support fdc since lc one is a critical office in the community especially on land matters thus the only people that can defend their right are fdc before accussing NRM of greedy.
On the barring of Gen. Mugisha Muntu and Dr Kizza Besigye to speak on kigezi based radio station station despite paying for air time , Alaaso said its a clear indication of how president Museveni fears Ugandans to know the truth
