Following Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi’s statement in which he blamed some forces in the opposition for the defeat in Hoima, the Democratic Party President General Norbert Mao has responded saying it is not time to cry or apportion blame for the loss.

Earlier today, Bobi Wine expressed disappointment in the wake of NRM’s win in the Hoima byelection.

Ms Harriet Businge trounced the joint opposition candidate — Asinasi Nyakato, something that angered Bobi Wine who said there was backstabbing by some members of the opposition because Nyakato identified with Bobi’s people power.

“There are those who have decided at every point to put their personal or party interests above the interests of the people of Uganda. We condemn this behavior and moving forward, we must have discussions and decide what is more important.

“It defeated all logic to see some leaders, apparently, in the opposition, do everything to frustrate comrade Nyakato’s victory simply because she embraced and identified with People Power,” Bobi Wine posted on his Facebook page.

Following Bobi’s statement, Mr Mao tweeted, noting that the opposition are too big to cry.

“HOIMA! We’re too big to cry, but it also hurts too much for us to laugh. We remain defiant. Asinansi Nyakato held high the banner of change. This is not a time to apportion blame. This is a time to apportion work. This is a time to turn to each other, not on each other,” Mao tweeted.
