“I appeal to Ugandans to shun their area MPs who will be coming back for consultations. This land bill will not only affect few members of oppositions but all Ugandans,” Kizza said.

Leader of Opposition in Parliament Winnie Kizza has appealed to Ugandans to shun their area Members of Parliament when they go back to consult about the new proposed land amendment bill that may turn into a curse to the nation.

She petitioned as she officiated at the FDC thanks giving ceremony at Kabweri primary school in Kibuku district.

She pledged to fight the new proposed land amendment bill, adding that power belongs to people and there is no reason for government to force land owners to get compensation when they do not wish to.

“Land owners should receive compensation at will but not forcefully. Be ready and on standby because your MPs will be coming back for consultation with a lot of money to corrupt your brains,” she said.

“I appeal to Ugandans to shun their area MPs who will be coming back for consultations. This land bill will not only affect few members of oppositions but all Ugandans,” Kizza said.

Kizza said that as leader of opposition in Parliament, she has started an underground move of luring other NRM MPs not support the proposed land amendment bill.

FDC party president, Mugishs Muntu challenged voters against what he termed as insensitive leaders that are abusing democracy of the country, adding that they should not risk tampering with the constitution to remove age limit.

“The only remaining safety valve in the constitution is the age limit that should not be tampered with. All those in Parliament either support the country or support persons in power,” Mugisha said.

“Some of us know NRM better than those who are now singing its songs. We left NRM and president Museveni remained with the country and we have managed to remain with values, principals, substance and that is bottom part of it,” he added.

He also said that Parliament and judiciary has been reduced to almost nothing, adding that Ugandans should start looking for the way of defending themselves other than trusting these institutions.
