Opposition Should Have It’s Own Agenda Not Centred On NRM – Hon Asuman Basalirwa

Bugiri Municipality MP Hon Asuman Basalirwa has said that it’s very wrong for the Opposition to have an agenda based on the NRM.

The MP says that the Opposition should have its own in order to run their activities diligently. The MP adds that the Opposition has been around for quite long and therefore need their own separate agenda.

“It would be a big mistake for the opposition to anchor their agenda on NRM. Ideally, the opposition should have its own agenda. We have been around for a long time to be able to draft our own agenda,” he said while appearing on the NBS Morning Breeze.

This is something that the Opposition has for long been blamed about. Most Opposition political parties don’t have an agenda and are more ingested in fighting an individual, President Museveni.

The agenda, therefore, is Musevenism for most Opposition parties and figures. Even if they have agendas and manifestos, their priorities have been shifted to fighting Museveni than spreading the gospel of what they intend to bring to the country once they take power.

These believe that the axis of all Uganda’s problems is Museveni. Therefore once he’s done away with, everything will just melt away. Whether they are wrong or right, time will tell.

Basalirwa also talked about the transition process which he said is natural.

The MP said that time was going to come for bush war Generals of 1986 to get tired. And indeed they had. The MP added that if these had the ability, they could have asked God to make them younger as they seem drunk into power. Unfortunately they can’t because it’s a natural process and they can’t avoid aging.

“I want to agree that transition is a natural phenomenon. It was going to be a matter of time before the bush war generals get tired even when they don’t want. If they had their way, they would have asked God to make them younger.

Unfortunately, that’s not how God works. It’s a natural process, and they have nothing to do about it. I am glad nature has set in, and some realities have to be faced,” the MP further added.

It seems the class of 86 is all but aging and slipping out of active service. Its only a few that remain and they might soon also be hanging up their boots.

There are also rumours of the succession that might be already building up. This is evident with Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba’s recent birthday celebrations.
