WOMEN DEMAND FOR UNITY GOVERNMENT

Kampala - Women in Uganda have called for dialogue between President Yoweri Museveni and parties that lost in the just concluded Presidential Elections.

This as the women advocate for a coalition Government between Museveni who emerged victor in the 18th Feb elections and persons that contested against him and more so the second runners up Dr Kizza Besigye.

The women activists are calling for a unitary Government in order to avert the roaming war situation in the country.

Addressing the media at their offices in Ntida, near Kampala, the women activists condemned the continued placement of the armed forces on the streets of Kampala and nearby areas saying this continues to build ego and evil amongst the population especially for those that lost in the elections.

They say a good percentage of votes that were not counted, combined with those whose voter were denied chance to vote sums up to 50%, forming a base line for a coalition Government
