KAMPALA – The Democratic Party (DP) has on July 2 asked the government to reduce taxes on CCTV cameras to enable many Ugandans to install them in their homes and business.
Addressing journalists in a press conference, Mr. Norbert Mao the DP president said that taxes on solar lights, CCTV cameras should be scrapped off to allow Ugandans to install them for their own security.
“On top of national IDs, get Security Cameras,” Mao advised Ugandans.
Mr. Mao condemned the rampant killings in the country and requested the government to guarantee security and safety to all the Ugandans and their property.
He further lashed out at police over the decision to connect private CCTV cameras to the main police servers in a bid to further ease monitoring and investigations claiming that the move will infringe on the privacy of Ugandans.
This comes a few days when two unknown thugs murdered a boda-boda rider known as Derrick Mulindwa a resident of Nansana in Wakiso district and were recorded on a public CCTV camera on the wall of a nursery school in Mengo.
On the other hand, Mr Mao revealed that DP will use Jose Chameleon real names Joseph Mayanja to recruit more members into the party.
“We will be launching ‘Operation Jail Break’ tomorrow at sharing hall in Nsambya where Chameleon and his brother Pallaso will be unveiled as new party members,” he said.
Chameleon confirmed last week that he has joined DP as he eyes running for the Kampala City Mayorship in the coming elections.
The music legend tweeted appreciating that “I Thank the entire Democratic Party comrades for honouring me this invite to your Headquarters at City House today [Wednesday] evening to discuss the best way we can work together for the best benefit of our Countrymen and Country at large.”
