The national Vice-President of the Democratic Party Fred Mukasa Mbidde has lashed out at the leader of the People’s Development Party (PDP) Abed Bwanika for meddling in the affairs of the Democratic Party.
Mbidde revealed this after his supporters were barred from entering the venue of the DP reunion meeting at Liberation Square in Masaka, Friday. But Mbidde claims all this was fanned and made possible by the area MP, Mathias Mpuga and PDP’s Abed Bwanika.
“You (Bwanika) have got your own political party which is not the DP. You have insulted Dr (Kiiza) Besigye, Betty Nambooze, Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and today have insulted me and even repeated the historical insults for which you (Bwanika) are actually known,” Mbidde said.
“We wont allow anyone whose aim is to abuse those on the opposition. Bwanika needs to tell us who he works for. We have since discovered that he always comes to the presidential ballot paper only to make sure Museveni goes to the bottom of it by Alphabetical order to make it easy for voters. The last we heard, he was swearing an affidavit saying Museveni never rigged 2006 elections. Who pays Bwanika, who does he work for?” Mbidde added.
Mbidde also turned onto Masaka Municipality MP, Mathias Mpuuga whom he accused of hiring students to cause chaos at the reunion and chase him and his supporters. Mbidde has expressed interest in Mpuuga’s sit come 2021.
However, Bwanika shot back at Mbidde for choosing the wrong forum to make his campaigns for the parliamentary seat.
“This was an event which was for uniting opposition parties and groups, when he went off that original objective, he got himself in trouble,” he said.
According to Bwanika, Mbidde is greedy and he doesn’t understand why he has an interest in upsetting Mpuuga with whom they share a political party.
Bwanika said that Ugandans now have capacity to tell who is and who is not a mole which makes Mbidde’s accusations inconsequential.
