Uganda, Kampala- Nathan Nandala Mafabi, the Secretary General of Uganda’s biggest opposition party, the Forum for Democratic Change-FDC, has petitioned World Bank-WB and the International Monetary Fund-IMF on the state of affairs in the country.

In his petition, Nandala notes that some of the money being used to finance the illegitimate activities of the regime such as buying politicians to lift the presidential age limit comes from World Bank and IMF.

“The money that has been already disbursed must be strictly followed to ensure that it is used for purposes it was requested for,” he said.

He accuses President Yoweri Museveni, who has governed Uganda since 1986 when he forcefully took over power, for eroding the independence of all institutions in the country.

“Under his leadership, soldiers attack courts like they attacked parliament recently. The police is headed by a soldier Gen Kale Kayihura whom Mr. Museveni has severally praised as a good cadre and indeed his cadre ship is to ensure that the opposition doesn’t carry out any political mobilization,” he said.

Adding that, “We call upon the international bodies to isolate the people perpetuating injustices against the people of Uganda.” He says the implicated officers shouldn’t be allowed to travel to foreign country.

“These people must not be allowed to travel to your countries and there must be interest in their properties acquired and saved offshore,” Nandala wrote.
