While appearing on the NBS Frontline program, Musumba said that the country has a transition curse. Uganda has failed to totally transit peacefully.
However, as FDC, they came to a resolution that this peaceful transition will never be achieved. Furthermore, Musumba said that contrary to what the new Minister of Justice Nobert Mao has been preaching about spearheading the Museveni transition, it shouldn’t be confused with democracy.
“It’s very clear that there is a transition curse. We have failed as a country to transit. As the FDC, we agreed that democratic transition is unattainable.
Let’s not mislead people that transition is a substitute for democratic change,” said Salaamu Musumba.
Musumba added that just like the French Bourbons, the country has learnt and forgot nothing.
However, another Frontliner, Minister of ICT, Dr Chris Baryomunsi, disagreed with Musumba. He said that for the last 30 years, the country has been transitioning. This is because people go to the polls to choose their leaders.
And as if to banter Musumba, he cited an example of transition in the Opposition where NUP has overshadowed FDC.
“For the last 30 years, Ugandans have gone to the polls and voted for their leaders. Every five years, we are transitioning, and people are given a chance to choose their leaders.
We have seen a transition in the opposition. NUP has overtaken FDC,” said Baryomunsi.
Baryomunsi added that those who think there is a crisis in the NRM, they should just wait for 2026. According to Baryomunsi, the NRM will still field Museveni if they still consider him to be useful.
Meanwhile, Nobert Mao’s tenure as full-time panelist on the NBS Frontline came to an end yesterday. He was replaced with Kiira Municipality MP Hon Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda.
