“My side is known, I am on the side of peace, truth and justice. To many Ugandans, the NRM is hope that has become a problem for everyone. I am known for starting fires, but I want to put out fires. This country is hurting, we have never seen peaceful transition. It is my expectation that the conversations around the presidential transition will heal the hearts of those hurting Ugandans and this conversation is continuing,” Mao said.

This comes on the back of numerous calls for a national dialogue on presidential transition that have failed to yield fruits.
