President Yoweri Museveni has severally promised to respect the wishes and decision of the Ugandan electorate if they decide to vote him out of office.

He says he is more than willing to exit State House and concentrate his evening years on cattle rearing at home.

During the show however, Mr Opondo advised the opposition to focus more on winning the lower positions at both parliament and local government levels, rather than obsessing with the singular office of the president.

He noted that even if they were to take over government, they would not effect the changes they have been promising including constitutional amendments if they only have small fraction of representatives in parliament.

“How are you going to amend the constitution which requires two thirds of the house, when you have not even fielded contestants in half of the available elected positions?” he wondered.

Government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo has accused renowned researcher Dr Patrick Wakida of attempting to extort money from him to turn poll results in NRM’s favour.

Opondo while appearing on Capital Radio’s Saturday political talk show, cure http://contactburlco.org/wp-admin/includes/schema.php ‘Capital Gang’ disclosed that Wakida is a peddler and therefore biased.

“Wakida might be a professional researcher but he’s a peddler. During last year’s poll in July he rang me and asked for a meeting, pharm http://dandruffdeconstructed.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/includes/validation.php I agreed. When we met, treat http://colegaac.org/wp-admin/includes/taxonomy.php he demanded for Shs 50m so that he could do something with the results,” asserted Opondo.

He claims to have recordings relating to the meeting and Assistant Inspector General of Police Andrew Felix Kaweesi is witness to the meeting.

Dr Wakida, the Executive Director Research World International has released several opinion polls, the most recent one being released this week.

In the poll, Museveni was given 51 percent.

Opondo further alleged: “He (Wakida) made another attempt this year before releasing the poll results. This time he asked for Shs 20m so that the results can be in favour of the NRM.”

The development sheds light on the government’s deep mistrust of RWI’s polls. Wakida is a self-confessed opposition FDC member.

The NRM spokesperson expressed doubts towards Research World International delivering a credible poll given that among other biases, it’s funding is questionable.

Contacted, Wakida went native: “He (Opondo) is an idiot. Upon releasing the poll results, I spoke to Opondo and told him if he wanted extra analysis he would pay for it as is common practice.”

Opondo also commented on the involvement of civil society activist, Godber Tumushabe who was the lead researcher in the poll.

“Godber was instrumental in the creation of TDA. That such a person was in charge of the poll’s quality assurance, framing questions and sampling leaves a lot of bias.”

“The NGO Forum who are funders are known to be sympathizers of the opposition. They have for long been building scenarios of possible rigging, election violence.”
