Museveni was Tuesday quoted in the media as asserting on a radio station that the joint opposition force held no chance of ridding him since they have no capacity to stabilize national security and other critical issues prevailing in the country.

Opposition Democratic Party in response this morning described the president’s remarks as unfortunate and undeserving to emanate from a country’s Fountain of honour.

“For him to refer to the entire opposition fraternity as immature and inept, I think he could have done better than that,” noted DP’s Hon Ssebuliba Mutumba while addressing press at the party headquarters in Kampala.

“We are not inept. We are a government in waiting: we are the only alternative and without us he cannot move,” he said.

“This shows that his 30 -year stay in office has also had its toll on his capacity. He should know that once anything happened to his life today, we are not going down to the grave with him. We will stay here and run this nation because he doesn’t own it.”

Ssebuliba went ahead to prophesy a devastating blow to the president and the NRM government come 2016.

“We are going to show him that we are not inept, and that there is a vast range of leaders of different calibre in the opposition, which can spur this county ahead in his absence.”

Opposition’s reviewed coalition has lately been seen in their unison to front a single candidate in parliamentary by-election, but also in their ongoing nationwide electoral reforms campaign.

They however, haven’t yet announced officially their intent to front a single presidential candidate for the next poll.
