Police have today halted Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) blood donation exercise which was supposed to take place at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi.
Last month, the party revealed to the nation that they were going to launch a blood donation drive starting from today (Valentine’s day) following blood scarcity in the country.
“FDC will commemorate Valentine’s Day by donating blood and this will be a one day exercise and we will later traverse the entire country encouraging Ugandans to donate blood.” Party noted.
However, today members were shocked to see police cordoning the whole place even after when they had already agreed with Uganda Blood Transfusion Services (UBTS) to carry out the activity.
Ronald Muhinda, Dr. Kizza Besigye’s Personal Assistant said, “Today, people assembled at FDC HQ with RED ROSES to donate blood but police had surrounded FDC offices. After waiting for hours, organizers started calling Blood Bank officials who kept saying they are coming until they didn’t show up,”
Muhinda posted on his Facebook wall;
Kayihura Police and Uganda Blood Transfusion Service (UBTS) conspire to block blood donation exercise at FDC HQ.
It’s not only that but Banyankole state operatives who have chosen to conspire to see vulnerable citizens die due to blood shortage.
In three separate meetings held between FDC youths and UBTS officials Mugisha William (Program officer) and Mukundane (PRO) at UBTS boardroom in Nakasero, there was consensus that UBTS will collect blood at FDC offices on 14/02/2018. Mugisha and Mukundane confirmed they were reporting directly to UBTS Director Dorothy Byabazaire. At every stage, there was a munyankole to make decision.
They only asked FDC to provide lunch for UBTS staff, Public Address System and refreshments for blood donors. UBTS provided to FDC posters with a date on which they will collect blood.
Today, people assembled at FDC HQ with RED ROSES to donate blood but police had surrounded FDC offices. After waiting for hours, organizers started calling Blood Bank officials who kept saying they are coming until they didn’t show up.
Officials at Blood Bank intimated that Museveni through state House officials had issued orders that they will not entertain “that no sense of FDC donating blood” to Uganda. An order was passed on to Kayihura who ordered for deployment. They don’t care whether there is blood or not in the country; they don’t care whether people die or not.
Truth is Museveni and his entire militia cabinet, security apparatus and staff in state house, none can donate blood. Apart from their blood being contaminated, they have so much hate against Ugandans that they don’t care how their lives end.
Museveni cannot donate blood, none of his family members can donate blood, Kayihura cannot donate blood, his Minister of Health Jane Ruth Acheng can not donate blood and not even his PS Diana Atwiine. His Vice President cannot donate blood and not even his Prime Minister or deputies. But why block people who are willing to donate blood to save Ugandans? Why? Why this hate against Ugandans? What did Ugandans do to you to deserve this hate? Tell us what we did so that we apologize to save this nation!
We are often told FDC is against Museveni but certainly FDC is not anti Ugandans. No. FDC wishes to have One Uganda for One People. That is why I believe in it. I last donated blood in 1999 but an accident in 2000 forced me to make considerations about blood donation. FDC called me and I responded. I was willing to donate blood.
Even when most people believe the same individuals who captured the nation sell freely acquired blood, they were willing to donate.
I hope now that you have successfully failed the exercise, never again will you ever have blood shortage.
I guarantee you that the God will believe in, unlike the Satan you honour and praise, is the most Almighty. You will die through the same pain you have subjected Ugandans. And all of you, you will die in pain.
