KACITA Shuns Planned NUP ‘ Non-Violent’ Protests, Here are Reasons Why

The Kampala City Traders’ Association (KACITA)  body has with great concern shun the planned National Unity Platform non-violent protests which were slated for 10th March.

The City traders’ leadership singled out a couple of reasons why they would not participate in the demonstrations that were slated to kick off today right from Kampala city and cover the entire country.

This comes after the National Unity Platform (NUP) principal and former Presidential candidate Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu called upon Ugandans to stand up and protest against the ruling NRM government affirming that the just concluded elections were marred with several irregularities and malpractices.

However, on contrary, the letter addressed to NUP leadership through KACITA secretary-general Mr. Musoke Thedeus  Keno declines the move by NUP giving several reasons why protests should not take place in Kampala.

Among some of the reasons are the just lifted lockdown that KACITA affirms that it had paralyzed businesses and therefore there is a need to recover from the financial losses.

He further stresses that in the capital Kampala, the demonstrators usually target innocent business operators and loot off their property subjecting them to more harm just after being hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic.

This letter, therefore, is to seek reconsideration from NUP leadership about the planned demonstration and look at the business sector as a vulnerable sector that does not need to be interfered with.
