Some DP supporters do have this false faith in part politics and party loyalty without knowing if actually party politics work in Mukono and also in Uganda generally.Mukono politics is not based on political parties as people give their allegiance to individuals and not to political parties.For instance,Muyanja Senyonga has always been voted as an individual and not as NRM person. Muyanja Senyonga is a great supporter of Betty Nambooze and he has always been there for her in the good and bad days.Betty Nambooze and Senyonga both have supporters who are torn between NRM and the opposition.
I want you to understand that Nambooze was not elected by the people of Mukono simply because of Norbert Mao. Nambooze and Senyonga both have roots which are so deep in people’s hearts and they will always be supported and adored by the people of Mukono until their marriage with the same breaks down which is also difficult.
Senyonga and Nambooze are people that have grown up through difficulties and the people of Mukono see them as their own. They have seen them go through challenges and they see them as children of the land regardless of their political party affiliations. DP supporters like Muguluma and Semusambwa have always failed in Mukono because people know them as weak individuals. Yet DP gunners like Nkoyoyo and Katono are favoured by Mukono people because of their honesty and track record. They are also seen as children of the land who are dependable.
Lastly, where do some people get this foolish and hopeless hope that Mao is going to win the elections and that Museveni is going to peacefully hand over political power to him? One of the Mao supporters in London called Aisha Nankya is a social worker who studied organisation theory, social controls and social order, values and ethics critical thinking, psychology and law. Therefore she should be well placed to know what Uganda is going through and where it is heading. Can’t some of you see that Uganda’s problems are only going to be solved by the gun? Museveni has made it very clear that he won’t leave power after discovering oil. That he will not lose an upper hand on the electoral commission, that free and fair elections will not be allowed, that power is not like ground nuts which can just be given away, that he will go on and on like the Israeli politicians, that he is a quarter pin which can only be removed by a harmer. Why can’t Ugandans see the obvious? Why can’t you see the gray area between white and black?
