Democratic Party president, Norbert Mao has apologized to embattled Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago for having used offensive words to describe him.
Mao on 21st seemingly referring to Erias Lukwago said he was tired of reasoning with idiots and unreasonable people.
Mao was expressing anger at the time when the two warring factions in Democratic Party had failed to re-unite dissatisfied party.
At a Press Conference today Mao said he has since regretted having used the offensive language.
“That is not my character even when you ask people who know me. I am not an abusive person.”
“I am very sorry about the strong words I used in describing the Lord Mayor,” he added.
Mao said he used strong language to describe Lukwago in the heat of a disagreement over the convening of the party’s delegates’ conference towards the end of July.
Lukwago and his breakaway faction refused to attend the conference at which new party leaders were elected.
He said he had got phone calls from people who expressed disappointment in him for having used such language on his colleague.
Former DP Party President, Paul Kawanga Semwogerere, has called for a mediation meeting for both sides.
Meanwhile, The Democratic Alliance (TDA) had asked Lukwago’s group to work within DP structures because they are still party members.
