Few hours after being reinstated because the Uganda Medical Association (UMA), Dr.Samuel Oledo has accused the opposition of the usage of some participants within the affiliation to battle him and president Museveni.
“I sound a warning that whoever in opposition wants to fight me and President Museveni using UMA that you won’t succeed. I will fight you tooth and nail. All doctors will fight you tooth and nail. We are ready to work with President Museveni because he is the sitting president and government to improve the health sector. Whether you want to cry, we are to do it,” Dr. Oledo informed reporters on Thursday afternoon.
He used to be reacting to the High Court ruling that directed that he’s reinstated as UMA president in an order which overturned the end result of an ordinary basic assembly that voted Oledo out of administrative center because the Uganda Medical Association president for breaching the charter of the affiliation when he prostrated ahead of President Museveni.
They changed him with Dr. Edith Nakku-Jolobo who had up to now served as his deputy.
The Civil Division of the High Court on Thursday morning dominated that it used to be incorrect for UMA participants to kick Oledo out of administrative center.
“The status quo prior or as at the time the application was filed in this court on December, 9, 2022, ought to be preserved to avoid prejudice of rights of the applicant pending the determination of the main cause,” Justice Ssekaana dominated.
Commenting at the ruling, Dr.Oledo stated he used to be unfairly handled by way of fellow UMA participants by way of accusing him of breaching the affiliation charter when he knelt ahead of President Museveni and requested him to stand once more in 2016.
“My political inclinage to NRM has not been in secret. I contested in the recent NRM primaries for EALA while I was still president of UMA but none came up and said it was political I shouldn’t not contest. But when I kneel before the fountain of honour to say the doctors pockets are not happy, it becomes a crime? Aren’t those double standards.”
“I know 95% of the doctors are silent but are supporting and the few infiltrated by kawukuumi(weevils) are the ones who feel even if NRM government has done something, it is not good enough.”
Oledo on the other hand warned that he might not be stopped by way of someone from advocating for the uplifting of the running stipulations for scientific docs, noting that although it method supporting the federal government in energy, he’s going to do it.
“I sound a warning to those intending to use opposition to come to UMA and fight it because the president is determined to work with us to improve the health sector that we shall fight you.”
Dr.Oledo stated he used to be returning to administrative center as Uganda Medical Association president lately.
