KAMPALA – Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde has December 21 launhed a brail manifesto to enable people with a seeing impairment embrace the message for change.
While addressing persons with disabilities from across the country at the ‘Renewed Uganda’ offices in Kololo, Tumukunde requested all political aspirants to consider PWDs in their manifestos.
“PWDs are over 8million in the country it is therefore not fair to leave them behind yet they also have a share of the country,” he noted.

“Today I launch this as a start point but then tommorow we may build on this. This is just the foundation,we may build on this and make sure that we turn around this country,” said Tumukunde.
Tumukunde expressed sympathy for people with disabilities and pledged to improve their lives incase he becomes president.
“This is a commitment,when time comes,we can be judged by our deeds and we shall make sure that we turn you into better people than you haven’t been,” he said.
He added, “I ask the disabled people of Uganda to stage a revolution, you are not too few to stage a revolution.”
