Government Should Ask FDC For Advice On How To Dispense The Stimulus Package

A few days ago, opposition party Forum for Democratic Change came out to allege how the government had stolen their idea of the COVID 19 stimulus package.

This was after the government announced that it is set to give out relief aid inform of money to people termed as vulnerable.

This came after President Museveni declared a national lockdown of about 42 days.

It’s expected that this lockdown will affect a lot of people negatively especially those who work on a hand to mouth basis.

While appearing on NBS’ Frontline program, FDC top cadre Salaamu Musumba said the government should approach them for advice on how to carry out the exercise.

“I’m glad they have finally decided to take FDC’s advice to give money to people. They should ask the FDC how they would do it. I would like to see the data that exists under UBOS. I hope the government knows the importance of periodic data.” Musumba said.

Musumba’s comments were supported by fellow FDC party spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda who was also attending the show.

The Kiira Municipality legislator said that government should treat this as a crisis.

They should therefore start right away to dispense the money instead of commencing  many meetings.

Contrary to what government said of giving urban people priority, Musumba said that upcountry people should be thought of too equally.
