We Need To Emulate Peaceful Transfer Of Power – Hon. Basalirwa

Bugiri Municipality MP, Hon. Asuman Basalirwa has said Ugandan leaders should emulate how Kenya is transferring power peacefully.

He says in Uganda, this is like a myth because we have had one consistent president for over 30 years.

“There is a lot of optimism and confidence in candidates. They are rallying their supporters to be peaceful. The issue of peaceful transfer of power that one President serves and hands over to another without bloodshed is one of the things we need to emulate in Uganda.”

Basalirwa also applauded the absence of police and the army in these elections.

“You don’t see the police, you don’t see the army, and there is no teargas. It is more of citizenship policing, and that is different from what happens in Uganda. Internet is available here, and there are no plans to disconnect it.”

“The media has been allowed at polling stations. The media can take photos and post them. That is the kind of transparency they are fostering in their electoral process,” he added.

Kenya will go into the polls tomorrow, 9th/ August/2022. The race is among four candidates; Raila Odinga, William Ruto, David Wahiga Mwaure and George Wajackoya. Ugandans have been applauding Uhuru Kenyatta for not standing for the presidency this time round.
