Analysts: UPC/NRM MoU Not a Surprise (Youtube-Clip)

“Jimmy Akena, the contested president of the opposition UPC and son to its founder the late president, Milton Oboteis set to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the ruling NRM. Political analysts say the new development should not surprise Ugandans as it’s the current trend of political transactions with more politicians expected to switch sides in the near future. While Akena argues that his decision to ally with Museveni was informed by the need for a peaceful transition in 2021, Godber Tumushabe says it’s clear why this alliance took place. It was merely in exchange for ministerial posts and shift of positions regarding opinion Upcoming negotiations are expected to streamline the type of relationship the two parties will enjoy. The two parties are looking at either forming a formal alliance or a cooperation for the good of Ugandans. But is this deal similar to the one between Uganda People’s Congress and Kabaka Yekka in the early 1960s? And on whether or not the UPC/NRM alliance impacts on the UPC party and opposition politics, Godber Tumushabe had this to say” (NBS TV Uganda, 2016)
