The ‘People’s Government’ led by FC Dr. Kizza Besigye, has set February as the deadline to submit a petition to the International Criminal Court (ICC) against President Museveni.
The petition pins President Museveni and his government on alleged human rights abuse and violations among others.
Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago explained their stand on the matter noting that they will be ready by the end of this month.
Lukwago further added that they are still collecting signatures from other parts of Uganda to support their petition but they will soon be done with the exercise and then embark on holding sensitization campaigns across the country to educate the masses about the task ahead of them.
“We are collecting the signatures and also trying to put together the evidence. We have faced a lot of harassment and frustration from the security agencies,” he said.
He told the media that over 80 lawyers will be dispersed across the country to educate the people about their fundamental rights as citizens.
On the latest issue of banning private meetings in the homes as was communicated by the police, Lukwago noted that the Public Order Management Act doesn’t confer any powers to prohibit rather regulate public gathering which has nothing to do with private homes adding that they are going to hold these meetings in both public and private places.
