Charles Rwomushana: Ugandans Need Conversation on Future

According to Rwomushana, government should be willing to have a debate, because in his opinion, they are more vulnerable should the situation spiral out of control.

Former spy, Charles Rwomushana, says Uganda is at crossroads and is in urgent need of a conversation on the route it should take.

Rwomushana, who was picked up last week and held for four days for circulating the picture of the purported body of, Christopher Aine, the missing aide of ex-premier, Amama Mbabazi, told URN in an exclusive interview that the situation in the country is so bad.

Adding that, the only way out is for government to engage in an honest conversation on the direction of the country. He said as far as he is concerned the country\'s constitutional framework has collapsed.

//Cue in: Mr. Museveni and …

Cue out: … like a wound.//

According to Rwomushana, government should be willing to have a debate because in his opinion they are more vulnerable should the situation spiral out of control.

//Cue in: They\'re more vulnerable …

Cue out: … for the country.//

Rwomushana said his altercations with the authorities were sparked by his crusade against increasing insecurity and use of violence and non-state actors in running the country.

//Cue in: My confrontation …

Cue out: … to give meaning.//

According to Rwomushana, a national gathering, akin to the Constituent Assembly of 1994, would be ideal to forge a way forward for Uganda. Ofwono Opondo, the government spokesman, could not pick his phone when called.

Rwomushana\'s call comes at a time when the country is warming up for the first ever presidential candidates\' debate on Friday. The debate is organized by the Inter-Religious Council of Uganda and the national elders\' forum.

A number of opposition figures like Dr. Kizza Besigye, the FDC presidential candidate and UPC\'s Dr. Olara Otunnu have in the past called for a national  dialogue to discuss some of the key issues in the country such as governance and national reconciliation. However, they calls have landed on deaf ears.
