You Have Allowed Some Bars To Work And Exposed The Country To Terrorists – Activists To Government

Activists have attacked the Ugandan government for allowing some bars to operate which has exposed the country to terrorists.

Apparently, proprietors of some of the bars working people with political connections to the government.

Sarah Bireete, the executive director, Centre for Constitutional Governance said the unfortunate terror attacks on the bar helped to expose some politically connected people who take themselves to be above the law. She was speaking during a virtual town hall meeting. It was under the theme, “Have they given us all we must know about the pandemic?”

“Officially we know bars are closed but bars of people who are politically connected or privileged have been working and this has been exposed by the unfortunate terror attacks on the bar in the night beyond curfew when such places are supposed to be closed,” said Bireete.

Bireete also says the preferential treatment of the government has kept so many people in poverty.

She also said the entertainment sector is under lockdown because the leading opposition member comes from there.

“We have the entertainment sector under lockdown and politicians have taken advantage of this by giving handouts and trying to control the business sector because the leading opposition figure comes from that sector,” she noted.

In any case, this has always been the vice Ugandans have complained about for long. Many have blamed their poverty state on the way government runs the country. Apparently, there is so much nepotism and favoritism in the country.
