According to them, if their cause of fight is the same, then there is no need for them to join them. This new pressure group is headed by Dr. Kizza Besigye, former president of Forum for Democratic Party.
“If we are all pushing towards the same direction, I don’t think there is need for all of us to be under one umbrella. You all remember there was a time when we had the people power movement and our comrades had the People’s government and we were fighting in the same direction,” said NUP Secretary-General, David Lewis Rubongoya.
Rubongoya says what matters the most is supporting the group by not joining the new opposition pressure.
“We may not join but we definitely have to support all efforts of removing a dictator.” Alex Waiswa Mufumbiro, NUP deputy spokesperson said.
Rubongoya added that this is not about parties or for parties. He says this is for Ugandans and their freedom.
“This is not about FDC, NUP or ANT but about you as a Ugandan. Each one of us has the responsibility to redeem this country. It is okay for all of us as political actors (to disagree) but above all we are all Ugandans who must unite for a cause.”
He emphasized that NUP is on the side of unity. He said this because people have been saying NUP and PFT are not seeing eye to eye.
“NUP has been championing unity of forces for change. It is about the people of Uganda uniting in furtherance of the struggle. There is no clash whatsoever. These are comrades we speak to. Sometimes we may disagree in approach but as long us all of us are pushing in the same direction, that is what matters,” Rubongoya said.
