Apparently, IPOD has never given them the answers to their different queries. Mpuuga says even the commitment of NRM on this platform is questionable.
“We are not going to allow NRM to ransom the NUP to go into a platform (IPOD) where the ruling party’s commitment is questionable,” he said.
Mpuuga says much as they are willing to have a dialogue, it can’t be with Museveni. He says they have been exceedingly patient with him but they have been pushed beyond limits.
“We have been so patient with Mr. Museveni. We had chosen to play civil politics but we are being pushed too much. While we are open to dialogue, we can only dialogue with an honest person. Gen Museveni has proved so dishonest, and this is the reason why we are keeping away from IPOD,” he said.
He said this while addressing diplomats from the European Union. He clearly stated that as an opposition leader, he owes people improvement in service and accountability.
“The theme under which we operate in the 11th Parliament is accountability and service. This is because we are alive to the fact that however much you want to deliver without bearing in mind the need to be accountable, along the way, you lose so much. The absence of accountability compromises not just the quality but even the depth and the reach of service delivery.”
