“Uganda should not be seen in such negative light since it has an adverse impact on the economy”
The Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) has urged government to uphold the rule of law and constitutionalism and appreciate multi-party dispensation.
Addressing journalists during the weekly party press conference, the party spokesperson, Michael Osinde said: “We also call upon the peace loving Ugandans to bear in mind the question of protecting our image to the right thinking national, regional and international community.”
Osinde claimed that some of the violent situations were ruining the economy with investors scared from investing in the country.
“We regret that some actions threatened investors who would be interested to come and invest in Uganda since they look at the country as politically unstable,” he said.
While addressing journalists in Kampala on Monday, the board secretary of the Association of Uganda Tour Operators (AUTO), Farouk Busuulwa, said: “Many of our members have received queries from intending travellers and international travel agents about the political situation in the country. Some have received notifications from clients to postpone travel while some have even lost potential businesses.”
Osinde said Uganda should not be seen in such negative light since it has an adverse impact on the economy.
