He was addressing guests at a victory celebration held for the Ngora county Member of Parliament, Dr. Francis Epetait, at the sub-county headquarters recently. Isoke criticised the Oyal south MP, Dr. Okullo Epak, Ben Wacha (Oyam North) and Patrick Mwondha (Bukholi North), for encouraging the debate yet “it was not the time” for multiparty politics. He said there was time for everything, adding that it was time for development. He said article 74 of the Constitution states that the multiparty debate would start in June 2004. “it is time for development, not parties,” Baguma repeated. He cautioned the youth not to be divided by multiparty diehards. “Don't disrupt the government's programmes like UPE, PMA and disarmament. Do not divert the Government’s attention from development to problems,” Baguma said. He advised the youth to avoid contracting the AIDS virus. “I don't know whether Ngora is safe. On certain occasions like this, people come from towns to infect those in the villages with HIV,” he said. The Kumi Resident District Commissioner, David Masereka, denied reports that there were few supporters of the movement Government in his district. Ends
