The Democratic Darty president, Nobert Mao who just returned from his political recess says he will still not relent from contesting for presidency. Mao says he is to stand for President even in the 2026 general elections regardless of the poor results in all the Presidential polls (2011 and 2021) where he has been a Candidate.

Mao says that he is a statesman who believes in democracy rather than violence as some groups prefer. This appeared to be a veiled attack on the NUP party which many regime sympathisers believe harbours plans for violence.
“I am a lawyer and therefore I respect the rule of law. I am coming back in 2026 because I know one day the election will bring the change we want.” He said
Mao added that the poor performance of the opposition is because they are not united especially when some parties think they are bigger than others and therefore think they can just drag their counterparts into ideologies they don’t believe in.
“First, as the opposition we need to talk and we get a Common voice. Some groups think they are too big to sit on the same table with DP. That ‘Kamanyiro’ wont work. Thats why you didn’t see me at Africana Hotel.” Mao added
Mao said it is ok for some people to call him a mole but he will never support any one who will try to use unconstitutional means to take power in Uganda.
“Some of you don’t know what a war means. Ask me who is from Nothern Uganda. I freshly remember what we went through when Kony was fighting government. I don’t want my countrymen to ever shed blood again because a certain person wants to take power by force. As a country, we need to talk.” He said
