He said: “My position on the Uganda scenario is that the current acrimony created by foreign instigators under the guise of “walk to work” is a simple CIA mechanism of regime change in Africa.”


Dr Matsanga who is an expert in conflict resolution, said engagement rather than confrontation would serve the country better.


“What we see on the streets of Kampala and what is developing in other parts of Africa can be resolved by constructive dialogue that builds consensus, not violence,” he said.


Denouncing the brutal treatment of opposition leader Dr Kizza Besigye by Ugandan police, Dr Matsanga pleaded with President Museveni to ‘seek national dialogue and reconciliation’ with the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) leader and former presidential candidate Dr Besigye and others ‘for the better future of our country Uganda’.


However, the controversial politician-cum-businessman who was once the Uganda People’s Congress party Youth Leader used the letter to accuse the Ugandan opposition of coining the word ‘walk to work’ to seek the attention of the world media while hiding their real purpose of trying to settle what he called ‘unfinished business’ with President Museveni.


He accused Dr Besigye and other Ugandan opposition leaders of having created the conditions that, in his opinion, merit the use of brutality as that seen in extraordinary scenes during the arrest and beating up of Dr Besigye.


He said: “It is shameful to see images of a Ugandan opposition leader thrown like sand bags on a pick up and then he comes out days later threatening further action of “walk to work.”


Matsanga seemed to be supporting the action taken by the Ugandan security forces in dealing with the peaceful protesters when he said: “…violent demonstrators have no room to complain when the state protects the same international law with any amount of tactics available as long as there is order and laid down procedure to be followed.”


He condemned the walk to work protests and called upon the opposition in Uganda to use other means to air their grievances.


He said the actions that the Ugandan opposition had taken upon risks undermining what the country has achieved in the last 49 years.


“Our opposition leaders should acknowledge that despite their rights being enshrined in both the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Supreme law of the land does not give them express rights to use their inborn rights to cause havoc in the country. They should instead use other mechanisms which can be able to benefit Uganda and Ugandans at large.”
