The President General of the opposition Democratic Party (DP), Norbert Mao has declared that the days of ruling Uganda with guns are over.
“I saw President Museveni in Bududa recently carrying a karishinikov 47, may be he was thinking that landslides were rebels,” Mao, who is also the LCV chairperson of Gulu district, says.
He adds, “I want to declare to all Ugandans that there will be no stepping on dead bodies on DP’s journey to statehouse in 2011.”
Mao says the era of political watchpersons like President Museveni are over and the days of Uganda experiencing true democracy and the voice of the people have started.
The DP president further asserts:
“I was born after Uganda got independence in 1962. My hands are clean; I have no blood in my hands. I tell you in 2011 the power of the ballot will defeat NRM guns.”
In a press statement distributed to journalists at DP head offices in Kampala by the party’s Legal Advisor, Mukasa Fred Denis Mbidde, Mao said those persons with blood in their hands will escape the wrath of law in future.
