MBARARA – Buhweju Member of Parliament Francis Mwijukye has asked electorates to demand for accountability from their leaders before they return to them for votes.
Mr Mwijukye, who was voted commissioner of Parliament in May 2019, challenged residents to vote those leaders that will represent their views in Parliament.
“Next year 2020 is a year of accountability. Everybody must show what he or she has done and voters are supposed to ask for accountability that is when you will be able to get services so you must avoid donations and bribes from the leaders,” Mr Mwijukye said.
Mr Mwijukye predicted that the year 2020 will be one of full of political campaigns and electorates need to identify leaders who will deliver.
Mr Mwijukye claimed the NRM party has fought him in Buhweju because he belongs to the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC).
“When NRM people go to report me to President Museveni, I walk to Namugongo, when they plan another thing, I meet the Pope and all my issues are solved because God is better than all other things,” Mr Mwijukye said
Mbarara district FDC Chairman Stanley Katembeya said this time people should be well alert to ensure that they are not fed on lies but rather service delivery.
‘’It is the right time now for people to vote those who have delivered services to their people. Before you go to vote first ask yourself the person you vote in the previous election if he or she delivered his or her promise and whether you have been able to get the basic services in your community’’ Mr Katembeya said
Mr Guma Nuwagaba former FDC candidate in Sheema North by-election said this is time for the truth as electorates have been fed on enough lies the reason why he left NRM as the RDC of Mitooma to contest in Sheema.
“I contested in Sheema by-election after leaving my position as RDC Mitooma, to come and serve people and even when I was cheated, I decided to come on FDC ticket because they tell the truth and was fed up of lying to our people,” Mr Nuwagaba said.
