“I Haven’t Joined FDC With Ill Intentions,” Lukwago

Published

This morning, Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, announced his move from the Democratic Party to Forum for Democratic Change. This came as a shock to very many people as Lukwago was always looked at as a die heard of DP. 

In a statement today, he has said that he has not joined FDC as schemer or someone with ill intention. He made the remarks during a function where he was officially unveiled by the party president Patrick Amuriat as a member.

“There are those charlatans that are ill bent on maligning me. I am a seasoned politician but not a seasonal one. I have taken this decision to join FDC as a seasoned politician but not a seasonal one,”he said. 

” I am at peace with my conscience, my heart and  my soul. In good and bad times, sickness and health, swallowing teargas and watermelon, we shall always be together,”he added  

 Lukwago said it is the gun that is responsible for the crisis that the people of Uganda  are facing today as It was described by Dr.Besigye in his book as the unfinished business. 

“It is our responsibility to finish that business. I am not here because I have come to scheme anything. I have not come to FDC as a fortune hunter. I have not come here for a meal card,”he said. 

He urged members of color blue family with the FDC ticket not treat it as a meal card. 

” I request that you bear with me. I will not go into those issues, the reason why I left DP. What I will focus on is the reason why I joined FDC. My decision has not been informed by the desire to come for anything material,”he said.

The Presidential Address on COVID-19 has been postponed to Sunday, September 20, 8pm according to Senior Presidential Press Secretary, Don Wanyama.

Wanyama through his Twitter said: “Good people, the Presidential Address on COVID-19 has been rescheduled to Sunday, September 20th, at 8pm. It will be live on TVs and radios. Asante,” Mr. Wanyama tweeted.

This week, the President summoned a special cabinet meeting to determine the future of learners and other sectors such as bars, sports and music events.

Last week, there were reports that schools, especially candidate classes are set to reopen for the second term that will end in mid-December, and that third term was to begin in January or February, whereas UNEB exams are to be written in March or April 2021.

However, Minister for Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and National Guidance, Judith Nabakooba urged the public to ignore these kinds of reports that are speculating about the reopening of academic institutions.

Nabakooba said that only President Yoweri Museveni has the mandate to reopen schools and all other institutions that were closed as a measure to combat the spread of the Coronavirus.

“The mandate to guide the nation on the reopening of schools and other institutions is with His Excellency the President of Uganda,”

“When it comes to the national COVID-19 response, I want to call upon Ugandans to be calm and ignore some of the speculative messages regarding the reopening of public institutions.”

The Ministry of Education was the first to dismiss the reports as being untrue and asked parents to disregard the same.

In total, Uganda’s health ministry has to-date declared 5,594 Coronavirus cases, of whom over 61 have died and 2,544 have recovered.
