The people’s development party (PDP) Presidential contender in the just concluded election Dr. Abed Bwanika, who came in the fourth position has laid out a number of brilliant ideas in contribution to the development of the country.
In what he terms as the “Post-Election Statement,” Dr. Bwanika who garnered 0.90% of the total votes tallied puts government unity at the forefront of his option remedies for the current situation.
He advises FDC’s Col. Dr. Kiiza Besigye, and President Yoweri Museveni to come together and form a unity government with the help of interreligious council members who he says should mediate the talks.
Here are the Ideas as laid out by Bwanika:
1. The many Ugandans who are aggrieved may choose a court option and seek redress from the Supreme Court. Our recent experience with the courts of law on issues of political adjudication is bitter and sour.
2. The second option is for the people of Uganda to put pressure on the establishment and demand respect in regard to their rights and vote expression. This option is always not predictable in terms of direction and cost to the Nation. It is the most tempting and likely to render the nation into a direction not desired by any of us. We need to count the cost in terms of both human loss and the economy. In the recent past, Uganda has paid huge price in this area, do we want to pay another price?
3. The third and best option would be a Government of national unity. The elder’s council and credible religious leaders should foster this option as the best way to avert the impending chaos and destruction that may result out of prevailing anger. This option is the best but most difficult because it calls for great humility and compromise from all establishments. Uganda must be the thing and any peace loving person should be able to give up value to secure a peaceful Uganda.
If this process ever succeds, my greatest respect and honor will forever go to both Col. Kiiza Besigye the most aggrieved and President Yoweri Museveni who has the mantle.
