The head of the Alliance for National Transformation party and presidential candidate, Gen. Mugisha Muntu has condemned the brutal attack on the offices of the National Unity Platform party earlier this Wednesday morning.
According to Muntu, the high handed approach with which the security team conducted the operation is not deserving in any democratic establishment that allows the functioning of a multiparty system. Uganda as a party reinvigorated the multi party democratic system in 2005 but Muntu finds it surprising that the NRM regime operates like a one party state.
Security forces raided our sister party NUP headquarters in Kamwokya, confiscating their property and disrupting ongoingbactivities. The high-handedness with which security agencies handled the situation is an unfortunate continuation of the government’s injustices against members of the opposition. We are all too familiar with this unfortunate, but unsurprising trend,” Muntu writes on Facebook.
“We continue to appeal to all security personnel of good conscience to remember that their duty to serve and protect is to the people of Uganda, regardless of who is in office. A time is fast approaching when those you will report to are those you were formerly ordered to antagonize. And while Ugandans have a huge capacity for reconciliation, it is not without limit. Our country’s political stability depends in part, on your willingness to do the right thing,” another bit of the statement reads.

The Bush war veteran politician adds that as the ANT, they stand with Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert and the National Unity Platform party. “As we’ve been doing, The Alliance for National Transformation continues to stand in solidarity with People Power. Together, we shall overcome,” Muntu says.
