Speaking on the NBS Frontline show on Thursday night, an outspoken Nganda urged Museveni to respect the rule of law and consider surrendering power peacefully if the country is to have a calm political climate. According to Nganda, president Museveni will take a lion’s share of the blame in case the polling process drifts into mayhem and unrest. Nganda further adds that as the opposition, they only represent the views of the oppressed Ugandans. “We are just messengers of the oppressed. We represent their wails and cries,” Nganda said.
He further told off Museveni that in case Ugandans rise and overwhelm his government, the opposition will have no control of the events. ” We have no intention to disrupt the country but we have no power to stop those who will follow your example in 1980,” he said.
