The Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) will not hold the delegates’ conference soon because it is amending its constitution.

The UPC national chairman, Hajji Badru Wegulo, yesterday told a press conference at Uganda House: “We are in a long process of constitutional amendment. We have other problems like financial constraints.”

He dismissed claims by Prof. Patrick Rubaihayo, the party former national chairman, and Eng. Darlington Sakwa, a former member of the national council, that the executive was frightened to hold the conference.

Rubaihayo and Sakwa have given the executive 21 days to hold the conference or face legal redress.
The assistant secretary general, Chris Opoka Okumu, said the aggrieved members participated in the party elections for president and executive members.

“Mama Miria, the president, was given a seven-year term as stipulated in our constitution. Are they challenging her because of male chauvinism?”

On the Juba talks, Opoka regretted the recent publication of a list of the most wanted criminals especially the Lord’s Resistance Army and the Allied democratic Front leaders, saying it was ‘poorly timed and in bad taste.’

He wondered how people who are listed as international criminals could freely negotiate for peace.
