Inflation and unemployment are top on the agenda of the Democratic Party (DP) retreat taking place at Seeta, in Mukono district.

Party spokesperson Kenneth Kakande told a weekly news briefing in Kampala on Tuesday that the two-day national executive committee is to discuss alternative policy programmes to solve the current country’s problems.

Among other issues to be tackled include unemployment and an education policy.

Meanwhile, Kakande has asked government to come up with descent habitable houses for Police officers saying that most of their quarters are dilapidated and condemned.

He challenged the internal affairs ministry to prove its constitutional mandate by providing better accommodation facilities.

“If the ministry cannot provide these basic facilities for the force, what’s its relevancy to Ugandans?” he charged.
