Canada-based Consultant Paediatrician and Neonatologist, mind http://dailycoffeenews.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-list-media-v1-1-endpoint.php Dr Muniini Mulera has blasted FDC strongman, clinic http://cippico.com/wp/wp-includes/pluggable-deprecated.php Dr Kizza Besigye, http://columbiavehicles.com/components/com_k2/templates/default/item_comments_form.php accusing him of failing to show leadership during The Democratic Alliance’s tumultuous process of selecting the coalition’s flag-bearer in the 2016 presidential elections.

“I am deeply disappointed by his (Besigye) conduct, together with the reckless methods of his supporters, which raise serious questions about his readiness to lead a peaceful transition from the authoritarian and intolerant regime that he has so valiantly challenged,” said Muniini.

“What would happen if Besigye became president and appointed some of his supporters to key positions in the State security services? Might the very evil that Museveni and his courtiers have visited on the land not be replayed by the new owners of the keys to the armory?” he wondered.

Muniini, a respected elder and FDC ideologue, made the rabble-rousing remarks in his weekly column in the Daily Monitor on Tuesday.

He was responding to the storming of The Democratic Alliance meeting at the Royal Suites Hotel in Bugolobi, Kampala by Besigye’s supporters last week.

Besigye’s loyalists led by several radical MPs said the TDA processes had been manipulated by the secretariat officials to favour Hon Amama Mbabazi.

Besigye, who has already been selected as the FDC 2016 election flag-bearer, was forced to leave the TDA meeting with the youth forcefully taking him to the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi.

He told a press conference that TDA members were concerned that Mbabazi remains a ruling party member but seeks to represent the opposition-leaning alliance in the 2016 elections.

Blackmail

On his part, Muniini described the raid of the TDA meeting as a “reckless campaign of intimidation and blackmail, complete with a mob invasion… It was reminiscent of the conduct of some Museveni supporters and militias.”

He added: “Whether or not Besigye had prior knowledge of this well-choreographed invasion, is unknown. However, where one would have expected him to show leadership by insisting on respect for the TDA, he followed his group and became their spokesman, justifying their attempt to bully his colleagues.”

Muniini further said he hoped that “Besigye’s heroic struggles over the last 15 years were focused on transformation of the country, not so that he becomes president.”

FDC officials maintain the TDA process must fair for members to reach a consensus.

TDA spokesperson Hon Wafula Oguttu told journalists in Kampala last night that the alliance was optimistic of selecting its flag-bearer by Wednesday this week.

Muniini said when the Democratic Alliance (TDA) was formed three months ago, its stated main goal was “to win power and form government in order to build a Uganda where there is equal opportunity and shared prosperity for all citizens.”

However, Muniini revealed, it seems that the “Besigye group entered the alliance with a predetermined expectation of only one outcome. It had to be Besigye and no one else. This was akin to Yoweri Museveni’s sole candidate project.”

He said, “Just as we reject Museveni’s personalisation of the NRM and the Ugandan State, we reject the personalisation of Opposition leadership.”

Mbabazi defence

In a surprising turn of events, Muniini, a known FDC donor, defended Mbabazi’s candidature to carry the TDA flag, wondering how the former Prime Minister’s continued membership in the NRM has suddenly become “a problem” for some in the TDA.

Yet, he said, the agreement three months ago was that membership in the alliance would be open to recognised pressure groups and citizens’ formations, as well as eminent individual citizens vetted and admitted in accordance with the TDA protocol.

Muniini said the political homes of the groups or individuals were not deemed an obstacle to membership.

“Mbabazi is the leader of the “NRM Go Forward” pressure group, which has been represented in TDA from the beginning. His conduct and statements since he declared his intention to seek the presidency have been fully consistent with the stated goals and objectives of TDA.  The claim that he cannot be a member of the NRM and belong to the TDA is, therefore, false.”

He said to achieve its main goal; the TDA must be an inclusive organisation that opens its doors for an influx of card-carrying members of the NRM who seek genuine change.

“They do not have to relinquish membership in their party,” emphasised Muniini.
