The Democratic Party Was Not Represented In Besigye’s Pressure Group

The democratic party leadership says their party was not represented at the pressure group. This has come after the unveiling of Walter Lubega Mukaaku as the DP representative in the new block.

However, in a statement DP spokesperson, Okoler Opio Lo Amanu said no one is representing the party at the pressure group.

“The Democratic Party has noted with sadness, concern, and amusement the attempt by one Kalinge Nyago and some former members of the Democratic Party namely Sam Lubega Mukaaku, Sulaiman Kidandala, Kenneth Paul Kakande, Vincent Mayanja, and Christine Ikiria purporting to be leaders in Dr. Besigye’s People’s Front and claiming to be representing the DP Bloc,” Okoler said.

The Democratic Party spokesperson says the people who introduced themselves as representatives of the DP bloc are only impostors.

He warned the new pressure group People’s Front for Transition (PFT) against associating with such people.

“Some of these self-seeking individuals whose trademark is indiscipline and opportunism once claimed that they had joined the National Unity Platform (NUP) as members of the DP Bloc. We warned NUP about them and their disruptive tendencies. Fortunately, NUP distanced itself from them and even denied them their party ticket in the last elections.”

Meanwhile, DP said they welcome the new platform. They also remain in commitment to principle cooperation with any formation that is struggling to oust President Museveni.

They, however, noted that this task requires putting the country first and not selfishness.
