Former Luweero Woman Member of Parliament, Brenda Nabukenya, has announced her plans to unseat Democratic Party (DP) president, Norbert Mao.
She was addressing press in Kampala on Friday where she accused Mao of presiding over a failed leadership and massaging the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) government.
According to Nabukenya, while Uganda suffers from multiple institutional failure, Mao hasn’t offered good leadership to liberate it from state capture.
She said the party now lacks the respect for basic principles like truth, justice and equality, among others, which are the principles upon which it was formed.
“Mao’s inward focus of leadership is to maintain the status quo yet there’s country wide outcry for power transition,” she said.
According to her, Mao is just collaborating with NRM to keep it in power.
“We must resist the wrong tendencies of massaging this dictatorial government. I declare to run for the president of Democratic Party to restore a credible and accountable leadership.”
To her, DP should be focusing on the bigger struggle of liberating the country with the other progressive forces of change.
If am elected the president of Democratic Party, Nabukenya vows to build a strong coalition with People Power’s leader Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine to unseat Museveni in 2021 general elections.
DP in its road map preparing for 2021 elections, set March 28-31, for the delegates’ conference where they will elect the new party president.
