As part of the countrywide radio talk shows aimed at popularising the now controversial Constitutional Amendment Bill, Museveni appeared on Voice of Kigezi in Kabale on Monday September 4 followed by Radio West in Mbarara on September 5. On September 6, the president was on Voice of Tooro in Fort Portal before he moved to Hoima for where he appeared on Spice FM on September 7. He was due to appear on Point FM in Mubende later today and Radio Buddu in Masaka tomorrow, September 9 to engage the listeners on the bill.
Gilbert Olanya, the Kilak South MP, says the proposed amendment is unfair and creates an opportunity for corruption and oppression. He says private land ownership should be respected, adding that forceful land acquisition may breed land grabbing in pretext of Government interest.
Dick Nyai, the former Member of Parliament for Ayivu County said the proposed amendment is dangerous and sets a bad precedent for Uganda. He warned the ruling party to desist from riding on its numerical strength to dwarf parliament.
