Democratic Party (DP) bloc has opposed the proposal to the coffee law by government saying its demands are economically segregative.
Addressing media during a weekly press conference, at the DP offices in Kampala, Dr Abed Bwanika a member of the DP Bloc said this bill aims at eliminating some individuals from the coffee business.
Dr Abed Bwanika who is also the President General of the Peoples Development Party asserts that this bill shouldn’t be supported by the legislators as it’s geared at discriminating some group from the coffee business.
The coffee Bill yet to be tabled before parliament seeks to regulate coffee farmers, enhancing quality of coffee and registering of all coffee farmers.
DP President Norbert Mao re-affirmed the Party’s stand to back Artists Joseph Mayanja a.k.a Chameleons saying Mayanja does not belong to the National Resistance movement, NRM as earlier asserted.
Nobert Mao dismissed allegations that Jose Chameleon is just opportunist, who joined DP for selfish economic interests.
According to Mao Joseph Mayanja equally has a right to any political affiliation adding that other Ugandans cannot influence his decisions through criticisms.
Mao also condemned President Museveni policy of militarizing the Uganda police force, saying that the army is trained to kill opponents at the battle fields and not performing police duties.
