Forum for Democratic Change Vice President Hon. Salaamu Musumba has warned the ruling National Resistance Movement [NRM] party members against treating Uganda as if it was “their fathers’ farm”.
“Today we are a party and tomorrow we are threatened that by 2021 there will be one Party no opposing parties to NRM,” Musumba said while appearing on NTV “On The Spot” programme.
“But I want to congratulate ourselves for the work done,” she said in reference to the concluded party elections that brought Patrick Amuriat into power.
Musumba said the opposition party is currently swimming against a big tide of ignorance where “we have polarized ourselves”.
“You are either with us or against. My culture of politics is we are not enemies, this is not my father’s farm. I am just a citizen,” she warned the ruling party.
Musumba said FDC delegates did not throw out former party president Mugisha Muntu because the elections were transparent and tamper-proof
“As a party, we need to take a deep breath. We have money, money is not the problem.”
She said running a party is more complicated than running a government.
“We want to re-align our elections. Without FDC, NRM would be nothing,” she said.
She said the party is still at the same pace and is looking for justice as before.
