The National Unity Platform(NUP) party president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has lashed out at media platforms that have made it a tendency to demonize key players in the opposition.
His response comes just a couple of days after NBS did an exclusive report showing that the once leading opposition Forum for Democratic Change(FDC) party has backtracked.
In his words issued this afternoon, he says that this is a state strategy to antagonize the liberation efforts. He added that the demonizing of FDC makes it difficult for the opposition to unify and make a formidable force against the ruling party.
“The continuous attack on the Forum for Democratic Change by this media house must not be celebrated by anybody fighting for freedom and democratic ruling in Uganda”. Bobi Wine said.
He also said that one of the methods used by dictatorships world over is to discredit, embarrass and humiliate the opponents. In his last words, he pointed out other tools used by dictatorships to weaken their opponents.
“The very regime uses money, violence and other tools against those that oppose their unconstitutional governance. We must reject this blackmail with the contempt it deserves since we have the same objectives though from different fronts”. Kyagulanyi remarked.
He concluded by saying, “WE STAND WITH FDC”.
