Former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Party President Maj Gen (rtd) Mugisha Muntu has said that Uganda’s young people have begun to rise and take charge of their own destiny.
In his New Year message, Gen Muntu said the country’s young generation is now rejecting yesterday’s politics that required them to serve politicians’ interests and embracing the idea that politicians ought to serve the people’s interests.
“The winds that blew through Kyadondo East last year continued to blow through Arua, Rukungiri, Bugiri and several other parts of the country in 2018,” he noted.
Muntu who recently quit the country’s main opposition party also said “On our part, what started as a grossly misunderstood decision to address the gridlock within the country’s biggest opposition group is steadily turning into a popular recognition that parting ways institutionally can sometimes achieve more good for all involved and unleash both parties’ potential far more than pretentiously keeping together.”
