We have less than a day to the polls but the National Unity Platform party has continued to give false hopes to the youth of Uganda that they will remove President Yoweri Museveni on 14th January.
They, however, don't give facts on how they will manage to do what Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and other opposition political parties have failed in the last 35 years. NUP which hatched from a mere pressure group does not have any known ideology or vision for the country that we could say Ugandans should base on to vote for them.
A political party should be having principals, goals and ideology. They should be having reasons as to why they seek the mandate of Ugandans to be entrusted with power. NUP apart from chanting 'people power' do not have any clear goals and vision for the country.
They are lucky to get the attention of the enemies of Uganda, the groups which have been jilted by the progress of our country hence working with them to forge a way of throwing the peaceful and stable county into violence and maybe war.
While appearing on the famous Morning Breeze program on NBS TV, Bobi Wine made us laugh again when he exposed his lack of capacity to answer important questions hence doubting his competency. When the host asked him about his strategy to boost the economy when he becomes president, Bobi Wine simply went irrelevant.
He said, "We don't want to talk about numbers, we want Ugandans to develop in vernacular".
This is not the first time Bobi Wine is failing to answer questions about the economy, foreign policy, security and several others. I think if we had a chance to have a presidential debate, Bobi Wine was going to be embarrassed. Any person who seeks to take leadership of any country without knowledge about the economy, foreign policy and security is simply incompetent and does not deserve to be voted into power.
In these times when Ugandans are civilized, educated and modernized, they put every candidate on a weighing scale. It will be difficult for Bobi Wine to force himself on Ugandans as their president just like Idi Amin did in the 70s.
Idi Amin managed to overthrow an educated and more understanding president and took over. All the years that he spent as president ruining the country, Ugandans regret them up today. Actually, not only Ugandans but also the neighbouring countries because they also got issues with an illiterate leader who simply did things the way he wished without thinking if they're right or wrong.
The FDC under the leadership of Dr Kizza Besigye tried to take on President Museveni and NRM. They started as a pressure group, Reform Agenda in the early 2000s and their struggle has never yielded any results. FDC has been having only 35 members of parliament against NRM's 300.
The irresponsible communication of NUP leaders will make their struggling party fail to win. While addressing journalists Joel Senyonyi the NUP mouthpiece said "some people will die but the struggle will continue". That means he didn't care and he didn't value the lives of those who have died and neither does he value the lives of the young people who run after them wherever they go.
Any understanding Ugandan wouldn't risk voting such a group of irresponsible people who don't take the lives of people important.
Also, Bobi Wine's continued romancing with foreigners who are against the growth of our country will make Ugandans choose otherwise. There's no sane Ugandan that will risk the future of Uganda into the hands of the merciless foreigners.
