By Robert Segawa

The opposition Democratic Party (DP) has revealed that they will be attending the IPOD Summit which is slated for Friday this week. The party believes this is the only platform to tell the NRM government the truth about what is happening in the country.

National Resistance Movement's secretary general Justine Kasule Lumumba confirmed that NRM party chairman who is also the current chairman of the IPOD Summit President Yoweri Museveni will chair the IPOD Summit which will take place at Kololo Air strip.

Addressing journalists at Democratic Party headquarters in Kampala, Opio Okolar La Manu, the Party spokesperson revealed that they will participate in the IPOD Summit because it was their idea to have this summit to discuss the country's current affairs including the kidnap, torture and murder of innocent Ugandans.

Opio Okolar further adds that they believe that dialogue is the best platform for resolving and finding solutions for this country other than using media to fight one another.

He also revealed that DP has no problem holding dialogues with the incumbent president of Uganda because they do it for the good of Ugandans.

Opio Okolar also noted that they are not bothered by Forum for Democratic Change refusal to attend the IPOD Summit because that is their will.
