FDC ‘devise ways of paying back national debt instead of shifting burden to the citizens’

By Damali Mukhaye

The opposition forum for Democratic change has called for an independent committee of experts to devise ways of paying back Uganda’s national debt instead of shifting the burden to the citizens.

Addressing journalists at the party headquarters in Najjanakumbi, the deputy spokesperson Paul Mwiru said that with the national debt currently at 37 trillion, the burden on the tax payer is becoming unbearable.

The party now wants the government to form a committee compromising both public and private experts to analyse and agree on the most appropriate mode of offsetting this debt.
