MAJOR Roland Kakooza Mutale has said the certificate of registration for the Civic Education for Development Organisation (CEDO) as an NGO, expired.

He said the Matembe Institute of Technology in Luweero set up under CEDO, was not registered.

Mutale, who is chairman and national coordinator of CEDO/Kalangala Action Plan (KAP), defended himself against allegations levelled at him and his organisation, saying he was being persecuted through “a very worked system.” He was appearing before Parliament’s committee on defence and internal affairs yesterday.

During the meeting characterised by heated exchanges between Mutale and Ruth Nvumetta (Kalangala), some MPs including Ahmed Awongo (Koboko) and Capt. David Matovu (Kooki) defended Mutale, saying KAP had done a wonderful job and apologised to him for ‘the injustice’ levelled against him.

Dressed in a multi-coloured Kitenge, Mutale was accompanied by over 40 people but the committee only allowed in four of them.
He provided documents on promoters of his organisation, certificates of registration, articles of association and objectives.

He said KAP was formed on September 28, 2000 by Movement mobilisers and sympathisers. He said KAP had no legal status and that CEDO, an NGO and a corporate body, was formed to address this.

He produced a video recording of the event and a photo album.

“Our certificate of registration as an NGO expired,” he said, adding that they had filed papers with the NGO Board.

He said the reasons for the renewal delay were both personal and logistical. He said he was one time sacked from being presidential adviser, which did not augur well with members. “For a whole year I had to struggle with that. My credibility was on the line,” he said.

However, he said CEDO/KAP was not illegal “because we assumed a corporate legal status.”

He said the press was being paid to recycle stories against him.
