.

According to FDC, Government promised to provide Septrine to Ugandans as enshrined in the World Health Organisations, WHO protocols.

FDC instists that government should task the minister of health to come out and explain why it is spending billions of money on foreign trips instead of people`s health.

Septrin tabs is often taken by People with HIV to complement ARvs which in turn makes the virus dormant.

About security in the country, the FDC Party President put the emphasis on the weird proposal of government to provide security to MPs and advised government to instead provide security to Ugandans not only MPs.
