Democratic Institutions In Uganda Are Undermined – Robert Kigongo

Democracy Activist, Robert Kigongo, has said Democratic institutions in Uganda are undermined. He says even institutions like Electoral Commission can longer perform their duties.

“Undermining democratic institutions is one of the challenges we have in Uganda. This includes the EC which can no longer perform its duties. Elections are militarised here but we were in Kenya, did you see the military taking over the elections?”

However, Robert Kigongo says the limits of a dictator are determined by the oppressed. According to him, Ugandans are the ones who have to say enough is enough.

This is if they are tired of dictatorial leadership. Some members of the public asked themselves how Museveni feels to consistently watch other countries change power while he is stack in the presidential seat.

“How can one president attend four swearing in ceremonies of different presidents in Kenya yet you keep on complaining, M7 must be brought to an end…,” a one Bollahk Obadiah said.

However, a member of the NRM Youth League said even if Kigongo says there is no democracy, everything must be done democratically because Uganda has come from far.

“Uganda has come from far, it’s no longer a jungle. So, anything you want to do must be done democratically and constitutionally. There is no room for violence.”

“Security reacts to how you act, there is a reason why we have decent elections in particular areas and other areas are violent,” he added.
