FDC adds that Ugandans should remember that Gen Museveni and some senior UPDF officers were taken to the International Court of Justice for stealing Congo’s resources between 1997-1998 where the Court ruled that Uganda pays Congo $325 million which is Shs 1.1 trillion.
The Najanankumbi based party added that of recent, in 2022, over Ushs 90bn was spent on Operation Shuja, an operation that was never sanctioned by Uganda parliament and with no clear benefits but only led to losses to Uganda hence leading to accumulated debts.
