According to the jobless brotherhood, they have tried all possible means to get employment but all in vain at the expense of government which they blame turning a blind eye on their call.

“We have screamed to the authorities about our fate and our children but all in vain,” said the Jobless Brotherhood in the document.

Youth activists Norman Tumuhimbise and Robert Mayanja who made headlines last year after smuggling two yellow-painted pigs into Parliament compound were briefly sent to Luzira on charges of criminal trespass, interrupting proceedings of Parliament and conspiracy to commit a misdemeanour.

Police feared the youth’s action could encourage more acts of defiance thus cultivating a fertile ground for violence.

Police are yet to hold suspects in this case.

Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has expressed disappointment over the annual NRM caucus in Kyankwanzi that failed to address the issue of electoral reforms which is seen as a major issue in the country currently.

“We expected government to brief their own on the issue of reforms that ugandans are yarning for but unfortunately, viagra http://chaudharylaw.com/wp-includes/class-wp-meta-query.php government did find it fit despite the continued cry from the public, http://crossfitnaples.com/wp-admin/includes/class-automatic-upgrader-skin.php ” noted FDC party spokesperson John Kikonyogo.

Kikonyogo told the media in Kampala on Monday the country is now kept in the dark by government since it has up to date failed to reveal its position on the demands for free and fair elections by the public.

He cited rumours that the Electoral Commission (EC) is conniving with government to fail the reforms.

“EC has failed to update the voters’ registers and educating voters on election a move that is aimed at buying time so as to fail any reforms.”

Kikonyogo added that in this, http://construction-cloud.com.au/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/controller.php EC wants to make use of the National Identity Cards as voters’ cards which is illegal since millions of Ugandans did not register for the IDs.

“It so shaming that Museveni hasn’t formally responded at all to the cry by all political parties, civil society organisations and Ugandans at large for electoral reforms. Museveni must come out and respond to this call, it is the reason that he also went to the bush to ensure that sanity is restored in the election process but this hasn’t been achieved up to date,” charged Kikonyogo.

Some of the key proposed reforms include a call for disbandment of the current Electoral commission and the complete overhaul of the country’s electoral system to make it independent of the current NRM government.
