The Uganda Peoples’ Congress (UPC) faction under the leadership of Dr. Olara Otunnu have accused Lira Municipality Member of Parliament, page http://demo.des.net.id/wp-includes/class.wp-scripts.php Jimmy Akena for betraying his late father, Milton Obote to form an alliance with President Yoweri Museveni ahead of the 2016 general elections.

Addressing journalists at Eureka Hotel in Ntinda, The Party’s former mouthpiece Okello Lucima said that on top of masquerading as the UPC party president, Akena had ‘shamelessly’ allied with late father’s greatest enemy.

The Otunnu administration, he said, had severally warned UPC members against Akena’s leadership and that their fears had just been vindicated by the ‘sale’ of the party to the ruling National Resistance Movement.

“Akena’s alliance with Museveni is empty; his wide and broad rejection by grassroots party leaders and members is precisely because he is regarded as an agent of the State and Museveni’s Trojan horse to destroy UPC,” Lucima emphasized.

The angry Lucima added, “No self-respecting UPC will surrender to Museveni after 30 years of resistance and struggle for full democratic rights for the people of Uganda; in this long running struggle, many including Milton Obote, Haji Musa Sebirumvi, Imat Cecilia Ogwal, Dr. James Rwanyarare and many others made enormous sacrifices.”

“This party will not betray their cause and desecrate their standing by capitulating to Museveni for silver coins and positions in his government. All UPCs, especially in Lango must stand firm and mobilize to defeat Akena and Museveni.”

Lucima described Akena’s claims that he is joining with Museveni for a peaceful transition, national reconciliation and unity as bogus since it is only focusing on uniting two families who have been at logger heads and not Ugandans.

“UPC has been explicit about truth telling and accountability that should lead to national reconciliation. Both Maama Miria Obote and Olara Otunnu as party presidents could not be clearer on this but Museveni has consistently rejected this idea.”

“Akena must abandon his simplistic, narrow and personalized understanding of political and national matters; reconciliation is not between him as an individual and son of Milton Obote, and Museveni as a person.”

“The tragic national circumstances in the history of our country are not personal matters between the two families as principal protagonists; these are national questions that affect the people of Uganda, the political parties, communities, nationalities and other national stakeholders, and go beyond Akena and Museveni shaking hands and sharing political platform.”
