Opposition Forum for Democratic change FDC has cautioned president Museveni against creating unpleasant relationship with the neighboring countries since it will grossly affect the country in the near future.
The party spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda made the remarks in regards to President Museveni’s failure to attend the African Free Continental Trade Area AFCTA asserting that it was as a result of personal issues yet the event was of much benefit to the country.
Ssemujju however warned that unless the African countries put much efforts in investing in production especially in agriculture, tourism, trade and industry the declaration will not be of any benefits to the continent since you can not trade what you don’t have.
He gave an example of unbalanced trade in Uganda which exports goods worth only three billions United States dollars as opposed to the import which stands at five billion dollars asserting that the situation is not so different from other countries a thing he attributed to low production.
Meanwhile FDC has urged clergies and Christians to shun the 316 members of parliament who voted in favor of removal of the presidential age limit from the constitution a move it says crucified the country besides praying for the peaceful transfer of power from the current president during Easter celebrations.
“We plead to the clergies not to allow these 316 MPs to speak in churches, do not accept their offertory, they should be crucified because they betrayed Uganda but we believe one day it will resurrect from the death” said Nganda.
