Election Can Never Change Government In Uganda – Frank Gashumba

Frank Gashumba has said an election can never change the government in Uganda. He says this is the reason why he didn’t vote in 2021, apparently, his vote would change nothing. Frank said while on NBS commenting on the democracy of the country.

“An election can never change the government in Uganda. I didn’t vote in 2021 because my vote doesn’t count. President Museveni now has power over all the institutions of government.”

Gashumba says the country has a strong opposition in 2016 that made them believe in removing the government but now it’s impossible. He says all efforts made by FDC were frustrated by the dictator.

“We had a strong opposition in 2016. It made us believe that you can remove a government peacefully or with force, but now it’s impossible. When Besigye formed FDC in 2006, he thought Uganda was as democratic as the USA, but the dictator ensured that he destroyed everything they created. If he saw someone resourceful in the opposition, he looked for all ways to get them to his side,” he added

On the other hand, Hon. Nambooze says democracy will still work but other nations have only been lucky to get there fast.

“Democracy is a process. It takes time. Democracy has grown faster in other countries because they are lucky to have better leaders. Democracy has still failed in Uganda because we don’t have a father of the nation. In countries like Tanzania, whenever they are in a crisis, they ask, “what would Nyerere do?”
