The Alliance for National Transformation(ANT) presidential flag bearer, Gen Mugisha Muntu, has urged Ugandans to stop taking money from politicians if they want to have good leaders who can work for them.
Appearing on NBS Frontline show on Thursday night, Muntu said there is need to change the mindset of the people in order to make Uganda a better country.
According to Muntu, there are many people in the country who desire to see change but take money from politicians who don’t deliver which is one the biggest challenges at the moment.
“Mindset of our our people need to change because I have noticed that there are so many people who run in a party which they don’t believe in,”he said.
He said he interacted with some candidates who were seeking NRM tickets but many don’t believe in the party and are only there because they feel it is the only path to their victory.
“We are glad that there are a number of young men and women who joined ANT out of conviction because they knew that we didn’t have resources. They knew we didn’t have large number of MPs in parliament,”he said.
He said as a party, they face a number of challenges which include limited resources among others but that won’t deter them from carrying on with the struggle.
“As long as we want to have good leaders in politics, people must choose to support the party because of its principles and ideological direction so that they are able to invest in those parties,”he said.
Muntu said the problem with some voters is that they feel that someone must be given money because NRM has monetised politics in the country.
“The mindset of our people is quiet strange. They should start learning.The Bible says you reap what you sow. People desire to see change but take money from politicians who don’t deliver but we will transform this country,”he said.
