Other party leaders speak out of DP coalition

By Robert Segawa
Following the formation of DP Bloc which was sealed by signing the Memorandum of understanding between DP and three other opposition political parties on Thursday, several political players have reacted.

The Democratic party, Social Democratic party ( SDP) , People’s development party ( PDP ) and Truth for justice ( TJ ) leaders appended signatures on an MOU agreeing to work together to strengthen the Democratic Party to lead the cause of Regime change.

Recently the president of SDP Mike Mabike, the president of PDP, Abed Bwanika, Lubega Walter Mukaku of TJ among others announced that they were returning to the Democratic party to be part of it’s rebuilding.

Speaking at the signing ceremony at Hotel Africana in Kampala DP president Nobert Mao announced that DP was no more disunited .
At the function, PDP president Abed Bwanika and Kyadondo East member of Parliament Hon Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi wine on top of calling for opposition unity attacked opposition player’s particularly the Forum for Democratic change ( FDC) and it’s former presidential candidate Col Dr Kiiza Besigye for working to undermine the opposition unity steering public debate.

The DP Bloc has since suggested the opposition election campaign strategy for 2021 dubbed “One to one model. On top of proposing to field a joint presidential opposition candidate against NRM, the strategy proposes opposition fielding joint candidate at parliamentary and local government levels depending on each parties strength.

Mukono Municipality MP, Hon Betty Nambooze, advised the opposition to desist from waging war against fellow opposition player’s and walk the talk of unity.

She urged the opposition not be diverted from the real enemy of democracy,who is Museveni and NRM and waste time in opposition in fighting.

Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda the opposition chief whip in parliament who doubles as FDC spokesperson, says FDC doesn’t have time to discuss the programs of other opposition player’s but they are concentrating on internal party programs intended at liberating the the country from dictatorship.

Meanwhile the NRM party spokesperson Roger’s Mulindwa disclosed that the opposition can attempt to form the coalition but at a certain point they will disagree

Mulindwa adds that the opposition is struggling to form a coalition against president Museveni and the NRM was a sign that individual players are weak to cause change.

He retaliated that as NRM they are just waiting for the right time to front their candidate and Ugandans will decide.

President of Justice Forum and MP Bugiri municipality, the opposition should stop labeling and smearing each other, but focus at United opposition which many Ugandans are yearning for.

He adds that it’s only United opposition which will deliver victory to Ugandans. He pledged that JEEMA will work with the DP block through constructive engagements along side other opposition player’s to achieve regime change.

The signing ceremony was among others attended by General Mugisha Muntu who is about to launch a new party Alliance for National transformation ( ANT), former DP president Paul Kawanga Ssemogerere Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi who called for unity among the opposition.

Pastor Male defends Bobi Wine’s Tuliyambala engule song re-edition

By Deo Wasswa
Pastor Male Solomon has noted that the Bobi wine song ‘Tuliyambala engule’ has actually come at right time and the people in government especially President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni must spare some time and listen to the song, internalize the massage and guide the on how to come up with fitting solutions to the problems facing Uganda today.

According to him, the song actually is communicating the country’s problems like lack of justice in the country, increased use of tear gas against innocent Ugandans, insecurity in the country, lack of democracy, discrimination among others.

“I call up on president Museveni to sit down and listen to the message in this song so that no one continues to mislead him that the song is bad.’’ Pastor Male added.

He also noted that those pastors who have come out to condemn Hon. Kyagulanyi for singing this song should stop it because what he is communicating in the song is truly happening in the country.

“When Bobi Wine sings a song, how does it become evil, one Pastor Sempa has never composed that song, two it was never composed by born again, three the person who composed that song died around 300 years ago.” Male argued.

According to him, His excellence always quotes the Bible but he has never started a church neither being in the ministry. He reads scriptures for his political aspirations but none of single clerics has ever come out to tell president that you are a politicians stop quoting the Bible.

Recently when asked about the meaning of the song, Bobi wine responded that the song is trying to unearth the massage that whatever problems one goes through, after the struggle these problems go and victory comes.

The Tuliyambala engule song was composed and launched at in October at Bobi wine’s concert held at one love beach Busabala. However the song come into video recently featured by other musicians such as Irene Ntale, Pastor Wilson Bugembe, Irene Namatovu, Kiyaga Hiraly(Hilda Man) among others.
