When Ms. Miria Obote handed over office of the President of UPC to Dr. Olara Otunnu she went silent.
When Col Dr. Kizza Besigye handed over office of the President of FDC to Maj. Gen Mugisha Muntu he disappeared from party meetings including meetings at Najanankubi, Kampala.
When Hon Nandala Mafabi lost to Maj. General Mugisha Muntu he went silent only to resurface a few weeks ago announcing his resignation from the political office he held in FDC.
After resigning, Hon Nandala Mafabi is now being quoted in the press telling Maj Gen Mugisha to either transform FDC or resign from the Party Presidency. Even Col Kizza Besigye has of recent been quoted critising Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu.
If we are to have a strong opposition in Uganda collective responsibility has to take precedence over individual responsibility. So if FDC President Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu is failing then we should all agree that all leaders in FDC have failed the party.
Else where in the world for instance in USA, the situation is different.
The Party interests are above individual interests. That is why Hillary Clinton and others before her have always respected and supported the official office holders/ nominated party candidates.
That is a lesson for us in Uganda. Otherwise, we should accept that multi party democracy has failed in Uganda and we return to individual merit.
