President Museveni can rest assured of his future and security if he loses the 2011 general elections, the Democratic Party candidate, Mr Norbert Mao, has said as he urged voters to consider a post-Museveni scenario in the country.
“I have been beating these Army men since my student days and President Museveni is going to lose this election to DP. However, we shall take charge of his security at his retirement home in Rwakitura” Mr Mao told residents of Makulubita, Ndejje and Bombo in Luweero District at his campaign rallies at the weekend.
Mr Mao said he defeated Brig. Noble Mayombo (RIP) in Makerere University guild presidential elections, Ms Betty Bigombe, Col. Walter Ochola - who had the full backing of the President. “Defeating the NRM should not surprise anybody come 2011 general elections,” he said.
People’s needs
The DP will establish the Citizens Economic Empowerment Fund (CEEF) based on the people’s needs unlike many programmes that the NRM has politicised to the benefit of its supporters and not the needs of the youth and rural population. “The CEEF, unlike NAADs and Bonabagagawale among other projects that the NRM has abused, will not discriminate at any level,”
The DP president said Hajj Abdul Nadduli, the Luweero NRM chairman, was preaching politics of hatred based on ethnicity, regional groupings and false claims that the Acholi are responsible for Uganda’s past political mistakes. “I have never been in the Obote government and I cannot be held responsible for the past political mistakes, including the Luweero killings. Haji Nadduli, NRM and the Obote government are responsible,” Mr Mao said.
“Uganda’s past political mistakes should not be an issue in this campaign because Norbert Mao would be the only clean candidate for this race basing on the past history.”
Mr Mao, who was in company of former DP president general John Ssebana Kizito and MP Issa Kikungwe, said President Museveni has continued to make unfulfilled pledges
