Mao Celebrates Lukwago’s Exit from DP

Published

on


Democratic Party (DP) President Nobert Mao has celebrated the exit of Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago who officially joined Forum Democratic Change (FDC) party on Tuesday.

Addressing journalists at DP’s weekly press briefing, Mao who has been known to be at loggerheads with Lukwago, revealed that he is not surprised with the Mayor’s decision, especially during this election period.

Mao said that it’s during this period that they are going to find out real members of the Democratic Party from pretenders.

“When a cat gives birth we get both real and wild cats. It scares them and wild cats run away as the real ones remain. The current situation has shown us real cats leaning against the mother party and wild ones leaving the party,” Mao said.

Mao pointed out that DP has groomed a number of politicians from zero and they have been elected in various offices but unfortunately, many of them have turned against the party and abused its leaders.

“I am disappointed by the fact that many people whom we have made are the ones working against the party to the extent of asking many of our people not to contest on any elective position on DP card,” Mao lamented.

Mao added that Democratic Party has free entry and exit and therefore it’s not right for some members to block the entrance for others.

Mao’s leadership has faced a lot of opposition from various long time members to the extent that some had decided to put in place a parallel Central Executive Committee for the party which was recently nullified by Court.

Some members have left the party well as others no longer actively participate in party activities due to the grudges they hold with the current leadership.

After crossing to FDC, Lukwago applauded Dr. Kawanga Ssemwogerere the Former President General of DP for having granted him an opportunity to serve the party through taking on numerous cases against it.

He revealed that his life Card for the Democratic Party will be a Souvenir which will always remind him of his journey within the party.

Muntu Blocked in Kamwenge

Published

Alliance for National Transformation presidential candidate Gen. Mugisha Muntu has been blocked from campaigning in Kamwenge according to a statement he released earlier today.Below is the full statement:

STATEMENT
Today in Kamwenge, as we have done since the start of the campaign season, we headed out to speak with the people. We had earlier in the week agreed on the venue with security agencies. No one had anticipated that it would rain as much as it did, making it impossible for us or the people to access.

After identifying an alternative place only 100m away from the original venue, negotiating with the owner and communicating the same to the public, we headed to the second venue only to be stopped by police.

Our policy has always been to do all we can to be reasonable, even in the face of unreasonable action on the part of the state. We engaged the police leadership in a civilized, respectable manner well knowing that they intended to not only frustrate us, but cause us to act in ways that would give them an excuse to cause chaos. This was on top of their intimidating the radio we had booked and duly paid to appear on.

While we are confident that we are on the right side of both the law and reason, we have chosen not to endanger the lives of our supporters or the general public by escalating the situation. We will do everything humanly possible to avoid a single life being lost or blood being shed on account of our campaign.

And yet this truth remains: the regime’s days are numbered.
