During their joint press conference at Besigye’s Katonga office, opposition activists called said they would Thursday this week hold protests in the city to expose the bad state of roads in the city and else where in the country.

Announcing the plans, Bobi Wine, Besigye, Winnie Kiiza, Erias Lukwago among other opposition members said they’re doing this to send a message to the delegates who are in the country for the NAM summit and G77+China that much as they’re cruising on nice roads, other parts of the city and the country are in dire state.


Museveni’s Deputy RCC for Rubaga Division Anderson Burora while speaking to journalists at Uganda Media Centre warned the opposition activists not to dare step an inch on Kampala streets with intentions of protesting because security is heightened in the city giving security to the delegates and they shouldn’t be engaged in running battles.

“The security has been mounted to ensure the heads of states and other visitors come and leave as they came shouldn’t be provoked to participate in now engaging with the people instead of focusing on crime, bad elements and most probably terrorists.”-said Burora

Burora said that government acknowledges such challenges of bad roads in the country and that some roads which were exhibited as being potholed have since been constructed while others are still under construction so he sees no need for opposition to take the direction they’re taking.

“Government of Uganda acknowledges the existing challenges. I also wonder why people thing that it takes Pride in failing to address such challenges. Some roads that were exhibited 4 months ago are already made, some under construction while others are pending. Government works on budget and that is where the money to do all things are appropriated”-said Burora

Now seems the warnings of Burora are just getting on deaf ears as principal of National Unity Platform Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has continued rallying his supporters to join him on the streets today to expose the bad roads. He says Ugandans should plant anything with in their means to remind the authorities that Ugandans deserve good roads.

Bobi Wine says himself will storm the streets tomorrow to expose the bad roads in the city. It remains a matter of reality whether Museveni’s security will allow the opposition to go ahead with their planned activities.

“Now that the attention of the world is on Uganda because of the NAM Summit, let us use this opportunity to increase the demand for our missing people abducted by the Museveni regime as well as all political prisoners. Let us also use this opportunity to highlight the mismanagement of our nation, beginning with the potholes on our roads!”-Bobi Wine posted

Police has since warned the opposition against carrying any activity in the city and would not hesitate but deal with them accordingly.
