Democratic Party President General Norbert Mao has labelled government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo “ignorant” for allegedly arguing like Donald Trump.
Donald Trump – star of The Apprentice, owner of four bankrupt companies and a weird wig – is the US Republican Candidate.
Trump – the man in charge of Miss USA and Miss Universe – is infamous for labelling Mexican immigrants “criminals and rapists” and threatening to imprison African dictators after expelling blacks from America.
Appearing on “NBSFrontline” programme on Thursday, DP’s Mao lost his temper and rated Opondo with Trump–it was Opondo who started it–[he had it coming].
Ofwono Opondo [cynical]: I don’t know what DP stands for anymore.
Norbert Mao [furious]: Then you are an ignorant spokesperson!
Still dissatisfied, Mao turned to fellow frontliners and stated: “Opondo is paid to misunderstand us.”
The DP leader said it was hard to educate a person like that.
“He [Opondo] argues like Donald Trump.”
Mao reminded Opondo who doubles as the ruling party deputy spokesperson that he doesn’t see NRM surviving after President Yoweri Museveni.
The same sentiment was shared by former Ethics minister Miria Matembe who said the ruling party had turned into a den of thieves.
Meanwhile, Mao said DP has had a number of leaders and survived throughout the time.
“Let one of your [NRM] leaders be killed the way our leader [was killed and we see if you will survive. If you think the effort may yield results, you don’t give up. That’s why after 62 years, we are not giving up.”
The leader in question is Benedicto Kagimu Mugumba Kiwanuka, the first prime minister of Uganda, a leader of the Democratic Party, and one of the persons that led the country in the transition between colonial British rule and independence.
Mao insisted there is a reason to celebrate the 62 years urging Ugandans to understand that it is not only people who won the elections that should have reason to celebrate.
He noted that DP laid Uganda’s foundation and that Benedicto Kiwanuka was supposed to be the first president but colonialists sabotaged.
He praised FDC’s Gen Mugisha Muntu for being a strategist as compared to tacticians.
“According to Sun Tzu author of ‘The Art of War’, Strategy without tactics is the slowest route to victory. Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.”
Mao described opposition Cabinet appointments by President Museveni as mere tokenism meant to entrench family rule and hegemony.
