GOLDEN JUBILEE OF MULTIPARTISM IN UGANDACONFERENCE ORGANISED BY UGANDA PEOPLES CONGRESS
We multipartists assembled today, on this 25th May, 2002 in the Cardinal Wamala Hall, Christ The King Centre, Kampala to mark and review 50 years of multipartism in Uganda, congratulate the people of Uganda on this auspicious occasion. We recognise the various roles and contributions of the parties in their participation in shaping the destiny of Uganda, at times, under very difficult and trying circumstances.
Aware of the similarities between the pre-colonial day challenges and those that confront the country today, we hereby resolve as follows:1. All political parties and organisations in Uganda today must work collectively to emancipate Uganda to regain her Independence from the oppression of the one party, military dictatorship of the National Resistance Movement.
2. Realising the determination of Lt. Gen. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to cling to power indefinitely, we bind ourselves to work tirelessly to do everything possible to ensure the removal of Museveni from power.
3. Conscious that militarism, violence and corruption have currently become the mainstay of politics in Uganda, we are determined to overhaul and re-direct the course of our politics so as to remove these evils from our political landscape.
4. We further commit ourselves, collectively and as individual political parties and organizations, to oppose, reject ad fight against the draconian, immoral and unethical Political Organisations and Parties Bill.
5. We do unequivocally condemn the un-ending violence and wars in and around the country sponsored by the NRM Government.
