Uganda’s main opposition party, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has been warned against engaging in politics that leads to death of Ugandans.
In his first visit to the party headquarters on Tuesday, the Buganda Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga said that politics cannot be a game of death. He cited the Luweero war in the 1980s in which people like FDC President Major General (rtd) Mugisha Muntu participated saying it was because some people decided to rig elections.
Speaking in Luganda, Mayiga called for mature politics that unites Ugandans from all tribes and religious sects. The Buganda Premier urges the FDC leaders to ensure they do not engage in what he called myopic politics.
He also called for politicians to respect the different cultural institutions because their supporters do have cultures they belong to.
For his part the FDC President, Major General Mugisha Muntu said they are working for a future which is different from the present.
The FDC party contributed seven million shillings for the Tofaali project, a campaign used by Mayiga to raise funds for the renovation of Kasubi Royal tombs. The tombs, which house the remains of four Buganda Kings, were burnt four years ago.
