Mugisha Gregory Muntu, has Tuesday morning in a press conference lashed at government and the security agencies over the continue brutality and human rights violations.
Muntu said that in the recent past 3 weeks, many opposition politicians especially where FDC’s Kizza Besigye is involved, have faced the wrath of government where many have been picked out of media studios while on air, suppressing political legal gatherings and trumping up illegal charges.
Muntu added that what is being exhibited, signals that the country isn’t at peace. “Peace isn’t the absence of war but peace is the presence of justice” Gen. Muntu said.
During the same media engagement at the party headquarters in Bukoto, Muntu revealed that the 22nd May 2019 shall be the official launch of the newly registered party at Serena Hotel in Kampala.
“Registration of our party was a little bit hectic but we authoritatively say that we have our certificate and we are set for the launch on 22nd May at Serena Hotel” Muntu revealed.
While commenting on Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu’s remand to Luzira, Muntu said that like any other opposition politician, the honorable is facing the same treatment and that most of the time, the government uses such charges to weaken some players.
He has further added that, his party is ready to dialogue with progressive forces of change.
