NUP cannot silence us, says FDC’s Nyanjura

Kampala deputy Lord Mayor Doreen Nyanjura has said they can’t wait for the National Unity Platform (NUP) to give them instructions on what to do to resolve the leadership ‘crisis’ in Uganda.
NUP, which is led by musician-turned-politician Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine, is the second-largest party in Parliament after the ruling National Resistance Movement.
“Should we all just sit and watch as we wait for NUP to give us instructions? What if we don't get any instructions from them in the next five years?” Nyanjura, who is also the secretary for trade in the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), asked on social media.
Nyanjura, who is a great admirer of FDC former president and four-time presidential contender Dr Kizza Besigye, claimed this country is in a crisis and in need of leadership and direction.
“We shall not merely watch, we shall do what we can, we shall not be silenced when we are supposed to act and yes, we shall not succumb to blackmail,” she argued.
She asked what they could do in order not to suffocate other 'strong opposition politicians?’.
She contended that all opposition political formations were engaged intensely before a new coalition named “People’s Front for Transition' under the slogan, Twetaase, was launched on October 7.
“NUP and Alliance for National Transformation promised to get back to us,” Nyanjura said.
She, therefore, said this “empty talk” of The Red Card Front being formed to fight NUP is diversionary and should be treated with all the contempt it deserves.
“I am not aware of any activities that have been organized by NUP that we are fighting,” she stated.
