On Tuesday 18th October 2022 the Minister of Constitutional Affairs and at the same time
Democratic Party president Norbert Mao, justified that he is preparing Uganda for a peaceful
the transition of power in 2031.
However, President Museveni has claimed there is no agreement on that.
Norbert Mao had assured the public that the President gave him the assignment of ensuring a
peaceful transition at the belated Youth Day celebrations at Bubangizi Secondary School playground Mitooma on 1st October,
President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has asserted that the Memorandum of Understanding that the NRM signed with the Democratic Party in July 2022 did not include any agreement on a political transition. Museveni said that Norbert Mao, the DP president general, was brought on board as a strategy to “bring the opposition into government” but not to oversee any form of political transition.
“That is our doctrine, to unite as many as possible so that the ones who are not with us are fewer. Maybe Mr. Mao is presenting it the way he is presenting it but it is our own old way of uniting anybody who agrees to unite with us. That is his approach and we have discussed unity broadly.” The President emphasized.
President Museveni’s revelation Says it all for those who warned Mr. Mao not to trust the president claiming that he never respects agreements.
President Museveni proclaimed that NRM will choose his successor in line with the party’s values and ideology and that it’s due to the application of the NRM ideology that Uganda has achieved vast development.
