Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) party President Gen Mugisha Muntu says that the fear of change and desperation are continuing to hurt Ugandans by compromising the decisions they make.
Mugisha Muntu who was on Thursday morning speaking at the opening of the ANT party offices for Ankole sub region located along Ruhaara street in Mbarara Municipality, revealed that the biggest number of Ugandans are craving for change but they continue to find it hard to stand firm as their mindset has been compromised by the situation within which they live and operate.
Gen Muntu said that the sitting government has instilled fear among Ugandans to the extent of making them believe that they will be destined for the worst in case the ruling government is overthrown which he says must be discarded.
He further revealed that the country will continue to grapple with insecurity unless the leadership moves in to address the challenges that people go through.
He stated that the deplorable living conditions and absence of employment opportunities drives people especially the youth to engage in crime. The retired serviceman further said that the locals continue to live in disturbing conditions as they struggle to fix meals, get access to quality education and other basic needs of life.
Daniel Kafureka the ANT Coordinator for Ankole said that the locals mobilized resources from members in the Ankole sub region and beyond to carter for the office space.
Mweteise Bintabara the ANT mobilizer for Ankole sub region also noted that the opening of a new office will ease on mobilization of party members.
