Museveni To Revive Inter-Party Dialogue

sildenafil geneva;”>The President who was a chief guest at the celebrations to mark 25 years in marriage for the Lwengo Woman Member of Parliament, Gertrude Nakabira Lubegan, and her husband, Emmanuel Lubega, at Kinoni Town Council on Thursday said that it gave him joy, happiness and hope that Ugandans had recognised the importance of the family as the fibre of society on which citizens are nurtured and institutions grown.

The President used the occasion respond to DP Secretary General, Hon. Matthias Nsubuga’s, request to have dialogue with other parties on matters of national interest including the Kampala crisis.

“I’m always open to dialogue and I will invite political party leaders under the auspices of the inter-party organisation dialogue,” he stated.

He then added: “I personally launched the inter-party forum in 2006. We shall revive it but the likes of Besigye and Lukwago enjoy chaos”.

This statement follows recent events where the Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago, has been engaged in battles with KCCA councillors and police over his stay at city hall.


Together with former FDC president Dr Kiiza Besigye, Lukwago was arrested and charged at Buganda road court for holding an unlawful assembly and later released on bail.

This followed a foiled planned rally in which Lukwago wanted to address his supporters protesting the findings of the KCCA tribunal report that implicated him on three counts: the abuse of office, incompetence and misconduct.

Later on, Lukwago was impeached as 29 councillors voted him out of office though afterwards, high court re0instated him as the lord mayor of Kampala.

Therefore, the President is confident that with the resuming of interparty dialogue, such chaotic occurrences will be avoided and solutions found for the common misunderstandings.

AIDS Testing and The Marriage Institution

On the same occasion, the president appealed to Ugandans to test and establish their HIV status which he said was good for one to plan their life.

He attributed the new infections to what he termed as unseriousness of Africans.

“We know how AIDS spreads, why should one behave recklessly? The ARVS are not a cure, have side effects, and you know health is wealth,” he said.

The President also commended Hon. Nakabira as an excellent Member of Parliament who is committed to development and poverty eradication in her constituency.

“Whenever Hon. Nakabira meets me, she asks for implements targeting improving household incomes and poverty eradication which every household should focus on,” pursued Museveni.

He further observed that poverty is the main challenge to our society and “we can defeat it through modern agriculture and getting systematic other than engaging in ceremonial agriculture that has no returns”.

In reference to the institution of marriage, the President said all people, young and old are nurtured in families, and if a child or citizen had poor morals, it reflected on the way that citizen was nurtured by the family.

He appealed to Ugandans to uphold the institution of marriage and family set up for a stable society and lay a firm foundation for our nation.

Also on the occasion were the Cardinal Emmanuel Wamala and Bishop John Baptist Kaggwa of Masaka Diocese who commended the President for publicly testing for HIV.
