By AUSA Communication desk
AUSA a pro democracy forum of Ugandans living in South Africa called for an emergency meeting to discuss the volatile situation preceding the stiff by elections due on Wednesday. The meeting was called after the Gauteng forum was reliably informed about the mistreatment of opposition activists lodging in Kasese district. It emerged that the scene was dominated with several security groups that have done nothing other than intimidating voters, imprisoning and abusing opposition activists.
In the meeting that lasted for two hours, the forum denounced the undemocratic and uncivilized manners under which the government is conducting its activities. The forum’s spokesperson Mr. Tim Mugerwa was quoted saying: “we call upon for the urgent and unconditional release of all opposition activists. All their activities are in line with the constitution of Uganda unlike the security agencies that are operating on unconstitutional orders from Museveni. Deploying heavy security by government at the polling stations is a sign of incompetence and lack of integrity. We are supposed to advance in levels of democracy not reversing to the autocratic regimes. The NRM government no longer has confidence; it is too tired to indulge in free and fair elections”
The forum called upon all opposition activists to join hands and fight the sluggish regime. It went on to ask all the victims of NRM’s brutality to endure and always stand for the truth. “We invite all pro democracy activists to go in large numbers and vote for the right candidate that shall not dance to the tunes of the rotten regime”. The Forum promised to contact legal and rights groups both locally and internationally to ensure that all detained activists are released.
