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.

  1. Uganda is under tribalism into politics but until the government creates a fairer society that entitles everyone to basic education, health care, employment, housing and transport that will never end. Tribalism into politics favours some and others are starved and driven into poverty eventually resulting into conflicts. Any political party to eradicate that must show understanding that such problems are linked to each other. Otherwise we shall never progress, any developed nation must address those five factors to create hope and peace.

  2. Oh Mayiga! next is NRM, i understand they were able to fund the 6 billion m7 one man kyankwanzi project among others. we are told it was paty’s money non else. Our Mengo premier should hastly move on there because Etoffaali will be most beyond 100Millions. The mega rich party NRM. For Dp and the rest i reserve my assumption for now.
