Mao said as the year closes, the opposition still insists on the call for a National dialogue bringing together all stakeholders, political parties, traditional institutions, civil society organisations, religious leaders with an agenda of ensuring peaceful change of power within the country.


“It is not enough for president Museveni to say; ‘I won the elections so you must shut up until the next election’. That’s the most primitive kind of politics,” he lamented.


“We should all come together to give Ugandans a gift that they have never achieved which is peaceful change of government.”


He observed that all the East African Community countries have changed presidents peacefully a part from Uganda and Rwanda.


“As DP, we celebrate the end of year because we have spent the year doing what our founders dedicated themselves to; combating injustice and upholding the dignity of the downtrodden and that’s why DP was founded.


He added: “The downtrodden have had a very bad year where taxis have been impounded, incidents like Owino fires, poor tenants like in Naguru and Nakawa have been evicted, the gap between the rich and the poor is widening and the poor people in Kampala are being treated like garbage.


“DP wishes to assure the downtrodden that we are still committed to continue fighting for truth and justice for the people of Uganda come 2014,” Mao swore.
