The Democratic Party president general Norbert Mao has pledged to provide UN Security Council with more lists of highly profiled officers fond of violating human rights.
His comments came shortly when US imposed travel sanctions on Gen Kale Kayihura and his family arguing that the former police boss had overseen gross violations of human rights when he led the force.
Addressing the media at the party headquarters in Kampala on Tuesday, Mao noted that he is ready to produce the full list of all the top officials who violate human rights.
“My message to US government is that when you are sweeping the stairs ,start from the top going downwards. We want to alert President Trump that there is still a lot of garbage on the upper stairs. There are lot of things that need to be swept,” he noted.
Mao noted that the move to impose sanctions on Gen Kayihura was long overdue arguing that it should have been done when he was still in office.
Kayihura has since denied all the allegations labelling US statements against him as hypocritical, spurious and full of concoctions.
On the issue of FDC’s Judith Adyaka quitting the race in the Kaabong by elections at the last moment, Mao urged political parties to always vet candidates.
“There should be processes of assessing candidates so that we get candidates which are not easily compromised, recruiting a candidate for the sake of having a candidate can cause embarrassment, now we are extremely embarrassed,” he said.
