FDC Besigye Laughing in Cheeks About NUP Over Dictator Removal


Share post:

After the general election in 2021, with the National Unity Platform Party emerging as the leading opposition group in the 11th Parliament, FDC founder Col (Rtd) Dr. Kizza Besigye blessed and wished success in the fight to depose the NRM regime.

It should be recalled that after defeating FDC and emerging as the leading opposition in Uganda, NUP brushed off, faulted, and blamed FDC for having failed to uproot the NRM regime.

This statement prompted Dr. Besigye to issue a two-year ultimatum to the NUP regarding their struggle to depose a dictator, which they claimed FDC had failed to do.

Dr. Besigye hinted in his prophecy that the NUP would never be able to depose the NRM regime in two years, as they had claimed.

After NUP promised that they would remove the “dictator,” the FDC’s four-time presidential candidate, Col. Kiiza Besigye, was brushed off by NUP, but in the end he was proved right.

Two years later, the National Unity Platform has nothing tangible to show when it comes to the political scene, apart from the usual blackmail and lamentations.

According to analysts, NUP’s journey has been all about talk and empty threats to the government, but when it comes to actual policies and performance, it cannot compare to FDC, which has stood firm for the past 15 years, challenging the government for better reforms.

The DP president Nobert Mao once regarded the red camp as a political party of hurling insults.

“NUP can only challenge government on the level of Kumanyoko” said Mao.

NUP, as a party wooing Buganda under the notion that they have been stepping stones for other parties and can now be at the top on their own, worked in their favor, it collected the votes and support, where the other parties had ignored, unfortunately this is not enough to maintain them countrywide, as some regions did not buy that narrative.

The political analysts advance that some voters outside Buganda region denied NUP votes because it is uncultured in terms of image, the ghetto image could have appealed up town, but energizing up country it did not sell NUP.
