Uganda Federal Alliance president Beti Kamya is right in saying removing Mr Museveni without changing the Constitution will lead us no where. The present Constitution vests too much power in the Office of the President without giving real independence and powers to other arms of government (mainly Parliament and the Judiciary) which would reign in an errant Executive.
Little difference would be felt if Uganda was suddenly transformed into an absolute monarchy. We are almost at a point where a President can even attain life presidency.
The only difference is that we waste public money and funds going through the motions of having an election every after a few years.
