THE Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) secretariat has blocked an attempt by the party’s national chairman, Prof. Patrick Rubaihayo, from carrying out a research on how the public perceives the party, reports Geresom Musamali.

Rubaihayo yesterday, however, said he was seeking the information as an individual and an academic.
He said he would continue collecting his data.
“Information in itself is harmless. It is how you use the information that matters,” he said.
The development has caused a further saaplit among the membership of the 40-year-old party, with the progressive elements urging Rubaihayo to continue, while the conservatives are reprimanding him.
Rubaihayo, a former agriculture minister in the Milton Obote 2 government, circulated the six-page questionnaire last week to several party branches countrywide.
Rubaihayo asked the party members, sympathisers and opponents to respond to his questions and send the papers back.
Party secretary general Peter Walubiri, however, on Monday said party members should ignore the exercise.
“The document, which is misleading and has highly speculative questions, purports to deal with the history, record, work, campaign activities and leadership of UPC,” Walubiri said.
“All party members, supporters and leaders are advised to dissociate themselves from any work or activity surrounding this document,” he added.
