Opposition Democratic Party (DP) President, site website http://clubcycloautun.fr/wp-admin/includes/image-edit.php Norbert Mao has revealed that The Democratic Alliance (TDA) is still in the business of coming up with a sole candidate to face incumbent President Yoweri Museveni in the 2016 general elections.
Mao assured Ugandans at a press conference at City House in Kampala that talks are still ongoing between the two TDA candidates, adiposity http://concernedafricascholars.org/wp-content/plugins/gravityforms/gravityforms.php Dr. Kizza Besigye and Hon. Amama Mbabazi to ensure that they reach consensus.
“Our first outside meeting was in Nairobi (which I didn’t attend personally) where members met with Kenya’s opposition leaders Raila Odinga, http://cutteraviation.com/wp-includes/ms-blogs.php who advised us to take some time off and give consensus another shot,” Mao noted.
“We are indeed taking our time; we have ceased fire against each other and we are rather concentrating our guns on the common enemy who is president Museveni,” Mao said.
Mao revealed that their second meeting was on Friday which he failed to attend despite being invited due to failure to acquire a travel visa to UK, but happy that it was attended by Amb. Olara Otunnu.
“The discussions with the former UN Secretary General, Kofi Anana were cordial and we still hope that sanity will prevail, otherwise Ugandans might punish us during elections.”
“We still repeat our appeal to Dr. Kizza Besigye and AmamaMbabazi to look at the suffering Ugandans rather than their ambitions; we need to get the obstacle out of way.”
He observed that the Kofi Anan Foundation has been involved in many successful negotiations that have realized breakthroughs including the one between Mwai Kibaki and Raila Odinga.
“We shall continue to put pressure on them so that they can find a common ground for the good of all Ugandans.”
Mao added that all members shall get a full briefing on what transpired in the London meeting on Thursday to forge a way forward.
