Noisy Opposition Parties Shouting For Unity Get Support From Foreigners, We Won’t Allow Them To Control Us – Mao Warns…

Mao addressing journalists today

Democratic Party (DP) president Norbert Mao has blasted opposition members who are calling for unity among all opposition parties.

While addressing the press today at the DP headquarters at City House along Dustar Street in Kampala, Mao said said that they don’t oppose the unity among opposition political parties, what they oppose is some opposition members thinking that they are very powerful and that without them, opposition cannot exist.

“There are those who say let us unite provided I am the leader and I am the one with the biggest share and honour, they want to be the alpha and omega,” he said.

“Some opposition members call other members Moles, why is it that those who think that they are powerful have failed to defeat Mr. Museveni?” Mao asked. He urged Opposition members to agree with the terms and conditions in the coalition of creating unity in order to rescue Uganda.

“A united coalition is there for all people who believe in change of power, it is not after friendship but determination. It is not after those who want to warm the coalition but those interested in defeating Museveni,” he added.

Mao revealed that in the unity struggle, the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) is already to join the coalition by April 2020.

In a letter that Mao distributed, ANT agreed to join the coalition on terms that; the strength of the coalition will be dependent on the strength of the component parts, the stability of the coalition is dependent on the stability of the component parts and finally trust amongst the participating is a key component.

Mao further revealed that the party is set to construct party headquarters in 2020 after 65 years of its existence and it will cost a total sum of Shs.9billion and a Kenyan company that will contribute two thirds of the costs.

“We are going to start the construction of our Party headquarter this coming year 2020. The construction will cost Shs.9billions, we have got a Kenyan company that is willing to help us and contribute two thirds of the total cost on an agreement yet to be agreed on,” he said.

When he was asked his take on the increasing conflicts within the Democratic party, Mao said the wrangles were created by those DP members who use the party for personal benefits.

“Some DP members use the party to get support from the foreigners in form of Donations, that is why they try to insist in the party,” Mao revealed.

He added that when he started screaming, Angume ordered his men to put him on handcuffs and they continued beating him until other people came to his rescue him.

“He gave me Shs200,000 and pleaded with me not to open a police file against him. I took the money but after I was advised to return the money to Angume, I gave it to our area chairperson to return it to him,” Muweke said.

He explained that what he wants is justice, not money. Efforts to speak to Angume were futile since he was not picking our calls.

Don’t Be Fooled, Kutesa And M7’s Families Are Positioning Themselves For A Bigger Project – Semujju Nganda, NRM’s Dombo Explains Why They Did Not Use Tibuhaburwa Name On M7 Posters…

L-R: Dombo, President Museveni and Ssemujju


Emmanuel Dombo, The National Resistance Movement (NRM) Director for Information and publicity has disregarded the widely spread perception that his Museveni led party is gradually loosing it’s authoritative ground, having failed to resolve a feud between Museveni’s brother Aine Kaguta alias Sodo and Minister Sam Kutesa’s daughter, Shartsi Musherure.

Sodo and Musherure were nominated as independents to run against each other in the Mawogola North constituency parliamentary race after they failed to agree on who won the party ticket.

Dombo projecting a win for one of the two, said with confidence that whoever will be elected in Sembabule will still be NRM leaning because the opposition could not raise a candidate.

He said, “When you look at the elections that have been conducted so far, the performance of the opposition has been very low. In these areas where we have had our councilors unopposed, who will be their (opposition) polling agents?”

Kira Municipality MP, Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda, referring to the same incident insinuated that in Sembabule, NRM is projected to win because it is Museveni’s own family matter.

“Kutesa and Museveni’s families don’t need Parliament salary. They are positioning themselves for the future. To them Uganda is their property. The country must begin looking at the transition from Museveni because it is about to happen,” he said.

On why President Museveni’s official campaign portrait was unveiled with his other official name Tibuhaburwa missing, Dombo explained that they started the process at the secretariat minus putting the president’s Tibuhaburwa name.

“It is going to be fixed with time. It is not true that we fix the president’s picture because when he is speaking on TV he is live,” Dombo argued, disregarding MP Ssemujju’s sentiments that President Museveni has to have his face made up to look younger on set. Semujju reiterated that President Museveni is an old man who is literally tired.

Dombo provocatively stated that Semujju like other opposition entities should admit that President Museveni is too hard for them to beat. He added that Semujju’s verbal energy should rather be diverted to the population to decide who’s more powerful.
