What you need to know:

  • After the January elections, I had a lengthy phone call with Member of Parliament-elect (and now Leader of Opposition) Mathias Mpuuga. A dignified fellow, Mr Mpuuga told me ‘since the party is poised to lead the shadow government, we intend to act in a manner that reflects our strength and dignity’. This was a hint NUP would not engage in public protests.

So, what is it with Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and the Nation Unity Platform (NUP) party? Have they reduced what they call ‘their struggle’ against the Museveni Junta to a turf war (associated with urban ghetto sub-culture)?
