The Democratic Party (DP) Youth wing identified as Uganda Young Democrats, has indicted party Chairman Nobert Mao saying that he is compromised and cannot not be trusted ‘in the cause of the liberation of the people of Uganda.’
Over the weekend Mao convened a Youth symposium which the UYD have termed as a ‘purported UYD-Symposium’ that came up with a number of resolutions which the UYD have called ‘ridiculous and unfortunate’.
In a statement, the UYD President Brenda Nabukenya says that they are also appalled by Mao’s conduct who they blame of using state agencies and Police to suppress, torture and injure UYD members in a bid to stop their Delegates conference on three occasions In 2013, 2015 and again over the weekend when he hosted a few people at Nabinonya Beach and pronounced his UYD take over.
Nabukenya accuses Mao of destroying DP to its core saying that the party no longer has a general secretary, national treasurer, national chairman, deputy women leader and its vice president is in a romantic relationship with the regime and that Mao has failed to organize a single meeting of the National Council because he is compromised.
“The Uganda Young Democrats is therefore revising its working relationship with the current leadership of the Democratic Party. We find the current DP leadership in breach of our trust and at different wave length with us in regards to the struggle. Norbert Mao is preoccupied with weakening the only viable youth organization that has been the engine of the struggle and the Democratic Party for the last 25 years. We can now reliably informed the country that Mr. Mao is compromised and the UYD indicts him,” the statement reads in part.
The Uganda Young Democrats say they will inform the Country about their next course of action while warning all those that are interested in change not to trust Mao and his current leadership in the liberation cause.
