“The NRM is not and should never be defined as a political party because unlike others, it possesses a military wing, and unless someone comes up with an equivalent of a militarised party, there will never be a favourable democratic political contestation and we can as well forget about regime change,” he said at a conference in Kampala on Friday.
“The only remaining option, therefore, is for the opposition parties to perhaps be disbanded and be replaced with an equivalent of [Exiled Gen David] Sejusa’s Freedom and Unity Front [FUF] – something that has got both political and militaristic elements in it, that’s where all hope lies.”
He added: “That is when you will see real competition, otherwise, all this while, the NRM has never had a real competitor, because it has got behind it the entire national armed forces, and public money.”
Gen Sejusa, partnering with another exiled Col John Ogole formed The Freedom and Unity Front last October, which has since been considered by observers as a budding avenue through which to launch a militarised offensive that could see the NRM government finally overthrown.
It has been described by spokesperson, Vincent Magombe, as having been formed by “all those with a high sense of purpose, history and determination and the desire to transcend the divisive and criminal actions that have for years threatened the very existence of Uganda”.
Hon. Fungaroo’s views were echoed at the conference by Major [Rtd] Okwir Rwabwoni, who described the UPDF as President Yoweri Museveni’s “remaining Ace of Spades”.

“The national army is always the last card in the hands of dictators. They will deploy it at any occasion deemed to facilitate their elongated grip onto power.”
Fungaroo continued thus: “When I joined the UPDF, I was told that I was going to serve the peoples of Uganda, by securing them peace and stability. Little did I know that I was going in to safeguard the political interests of one man, and that’s why I opted out. “
