Opposition leaders have cited selfishness and greed as constraints to their efforts of winning political positions during nationwide elections. 

The leaders from different political parties stated that Ugandan opposition figures have exhibited greed by failing to form a united front against the ruling National Resistance Movement-NRM party. Representatives from the Alliance for National Transformation, the Democratic Party-DP and Justice Forum- JEEMA, among others, were speaking the Busoga Democratic Party-Uganda Young Democrats (UYD) reunion held at Kakindu Stadium in Jinja on Wednesday.  

Arua municipality MP Kassiano Wadri says that opposition hopefuls lost hope when The Democratic Alliance-TDA failed to front a single candidate adding that parties should now work towards supporting one presidential candidate during the 2021 general elections.

Jinja East MP Paul Mwiru says that serving as an opposition leader is a calling which requires all members to selflessly merge their efforts for change rather than waiting for particular individuals to take the lead. 

//Cue in; “tye’nda…  

Cue out…bantu.// 

Mityana Municipality MP Francis Zaake encouraged the youth to rise up and defend their rights just as their elders stood for the same in the past regimes. 

//Cue in; “bakade baffe…

Cue out…tuwangula.’// 

Mugisha Muntu, the leader of the Newly formed Alliance for National Transformation- ANT says that the only way for the opposition to capture power is through making early countrywide consultations and reaching consensus on a presidential flag bearer other than forcing last minute decisions where grieving parties lack enough time to heal and support the struggle. 

During the same meeting, Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi said that leaders should outlive their personal desires and work for the political transformation of the country.
