Activists of the banned For God and My Country (4GC) have vowed to make a comeback should government fail to heed to calls for electoral reforms.
The opposition last week gave government a deadline of end of April to review its response on the proposed ten baskets of demands.
Mathias Mpuuga, the National Coordinator For God and My country activists says that as they struggle to make the regime appreciate change, any negative response would mean the return of disruptive street action. However, he is confident that as they speak with one voice, their efforts will bear fruit unlike before where they were working individually.
According to Mpuuga, the opposition has paid a heavy price by trying to work individually citing Nobert Mao, who resisted earlier attempts to work with other parties.
Currently Norbert Mao, the DP president is among the opposition Party Presidents attending countrywide meetings and holding rallies to sensitize Ugandans about free and fair elections. Mpuuga is hopes that some of the leaders working with them do not turn around since NRM is also not sleeping and would do anything to undermine the current consensus.
He adds that the most important thing for them now is to ensure ordinary Ugandans understand what they are doing. On the silence of 4GC Mpuuga says he is now well oriented on how to handle politics after two and a half years working with politicians and those in Parliament.
He adds that this period has been a good experience to know how to handle an environment laden with gullible and greedy politicians and people with no direction sometimes. Mpuuga says currently he is preoccupied with building an opposition consensus on the next phase of elections.
The 4GC National Coordinator also expressed concern that Ugandans are taking long to find means of dislodging the current regime. Mpuuga says they are going to try and convince the elite who he described as the sausage eaters to join the struggle as they go around the country.
The opposition also plans to submit their electoral reforms to the Speaker of Parliament to be debated on the floor of Parliament after the responsible Parliament committee has handled the issues. Mpuuga reveals that the unfortunate bit is that since Parliament has had more recess periods than sittings recently they are yet to submit.
