FDC Founder, Dr. Kizza Besigye, Foretells Food Shortage In Uganda

Political Activist, Dr. Kizza Besigye, has foretold the coming food shortage in the next few weeks that could cause another crisis in the country. He says everything has gone high but the salaries of people are still the same.

“On top of high fuel prices, we are going to have food shortages pushing up prices. Maize flour prices have doubled but people’s incomes have not changed. So those who are saying we shall survive, hunger will wake them up. Schools will not be able to buy food,” he warned during a news conference held in Kampala.

Kizza Besigye has continued to accuse the government of doing nothing about the intensifying crisis. He says the only thing they are doing is telling people to tighten their belts which is unfortunate.

“Maybe the government should supply the belts. Yet the comfort of the people who control the country hasn’t changed. In spite of the repression we have met due to our wake-up call, the intention of the campaign is being achieved. More and more people are waking up to the crisis and the crisis itself is helping us in waking up Ugandans since its intensifying.”

Besigye says this crisis is an urgent need that government should, by all means, look into. However, it doesn’t seem so for the government.
