“Democratic Party president, Norbert Mao, has called the National Unity Platform (NUP) a dubious project which is delaying change. “What I see here is the reason a party that seeks to lead Uganda should not encourage its supporters to use mind-bending substances. I will not be distracted. NUP is a dubious project for delaying change. They malign everyone but in reality they are a creation of the shadow State,” Mao wrote on his Twitter handle” (Carol Kasujja Adii – ‘NUP is a dubious Project – Mao’ 08.03.2022, New Vision).
It is hard to imagine that Norbert Mao has been the Democratic Party President for over a decade at this point. He has run the DP Party since before the ‘Walk to Work’ demonstrations and haven’t succeeded in the 2011, 2016 or in 2021. This is why his on a expedition right now to make himself relevant and sound resounding. However, that is all backfiring.
His instead being loved by the National Resistance Movement Youth League (NRM-YL). The DP President is being supported by Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerubaga and being boosted by Andrew Mwenda. It is him who can be claimed to be the “shadow state”. That is only speculating, but he surely does the work of the state and their allies. Ofwono Opondo is soon irrelevant and the GCIC should just hire Mao. He would do the work for them and finally Opondo could lavish on a farm in close association to Kayihura somewhere. That would make sense after all of these years.
Mao is working so hard to maligned Bobi Wine aka Robert Kyagulanyi as a shady actor or political leader. That his forgetting his own mission or supposed work as a Party President. His so obsessed and focused, that he is tweeting more about NUP and Bobi Wine, than certain radio stations are pinning Sheila Gashumba.
He is working on overtime to discredit and say the NUP is the modern version of Kabaka Yekka (KY) party. A Baganda party and not a national one. That is following the rhetoric and message, which resembles the NRM. I would think a man of the opposition like Mao wouldn’t like to sound like NRM. However, he thrives in the space of NRM and speaking their points of view. That’s maybe why he uses the same points, agenda and means as the NRM has done.
Mao has gone after the party, the way it was formed and everything in between. Soon he will post a picture of Bobi Wine smoking weed and dancing with a woman on stage in his early career. Because, that is what you do… when you cannot see someone aspire or create a new avenue for themselves. Nevertheless, Mao is only burning bridges while speaking of dialogue, which is ironic as his supposed to be the wise-man of the political space. Alas, we can say with time that wisdom has clearly withered into the winds of time.
Mao isn’t as bright or the future of leadership. Instead his a washed-up uninspiring and a depressing sort of character. All the promise straight into the storm-drain and all for nothing. He could have done a lot and be remembered for something. Instead, his just one of them suits with no aspirations or prospects to generate hope. No, his a empty suit and enjoy the perks of that office. Peace.
