The Uganda Peoples’ Congress (UPC) is also engaged conflicts with a group led by Lira Municipality MP, James Akena, which is questioning the competence of the party leader, Amb. Olara Otunnu, who has ignored several petitions asking him to call for a delegate’s conference.


Talk of the biggest opposition party, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) which has left many Ugandans in misery in 2013 after failing to resolve the election malpractice issues between the newly elected party President Mugisha Muntu and the Leader of Opposition in parliament Hon. Nandala Mafabi.


The second oldest party in Africa next to the ANC of South Africa, the Democracy Party (DP), has ended the year without ironing out the critical issue of the wrangling UYD members which split the party into two parts.


The DP party president, Norbert Mao, early this week said, “I want to admit that we still have a problem of conflicts in the Democratic Party which is mainly about those who don’t respect the constitution of the party”.


Mao noted that however, the conflicts within the party have been media managed adding that conflicts are part of any society and every organisation has conflicts including heaven.


“If God could be challenged by a mere angel, what about Norbert Mao being challenged by his fellow leaders? This is very normal. I would be thinking much of myself to expect that everybody will be saying ‘yes sir, you are right’ to everything that I suggest,” he explained.


“Even Jesus with his 12 apostles, 1 out of 12 was a traitor and so even in DP, 1/12 of the members, we move with them knowing they are betraying us,” Mao added.


He further noted that “I think DP is the most mature party in Uganda; we have changed leaders six times and we are the only party that has had its leader killed and has survived and the only party that has been here for 60 years out of power but still operational”.


Moa, however, assured all Ugandans that the party will stabilise its house come 2014 as it prepares to take on the big house come 2016 general elections.
