MOREEN KYALYA CALLS FOR REGIONALIZED ARMY.

By Nabbuye Rehemah, Namakula Sylvia and Nanziri Winnie.

Former presidential candidate Maureen Kyalya Walube has proposed to regionalize the army which she say will help to improve the welfare and performance of the army officers.

Maureen Kyalya Walube who doubles as the Executive Director of Uganda Toris told journalists at centenary Park in Kampala that the failure to have a regionalized army is the reason for the poor performance of most Army offices as they often think about their families.

Kyalya Walube who is the mastermind of a political drive code named waking sleeping Giants advises Ugandans who have a political ambition to actively come out and declare their ambitions in order to develop Ugandan politics.

According to Kyalya she describes waking sleeping Giants as those interested in becoming presidents but reluctant in the field.

Kyalya gave reference of former premier and presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi whom she describes to be in hiding leaving Ugandans in suspicion.

About empowering Ugandans through cooperatives and social welfare, Maureen Kyalya, says there is need to mandate vulnerable people to improve on their wellbeing.

Kyalya sounded to be attacking politicians who think of being rewarded in return yet they can serve Ugandans genuinely which has contributed to the retarded growth and development in the country.

About the increasing deaths in the country, Kyalya wants to have reduction of guns amongst Ugandans.

END.
