The leader of opposition in Parliament , Mathias Mpuuga has described the recent attacks from the Opposition Democratic Party General President Norbert Mao towards the National Unity Platform and other opposition leaders as personal, saying that they don’t decipher to DP.
“The altercations are personal and wouldn’t decipher it to DP. I have known the person of Norbert Mao and for a while, and for the person I know, there are no surprises I think he is beyond frustration and I think he is dispirited,” Mpuuga said.
Mpuuga who was on Wednesday appearing on a local TV station, noted that Mao looks dispirited, advising those around him to talk to him.
“Growing up and looking at the days of UYD and what he was, for what he ought to have been and who he is now, I feel he is dispirited and those around him ought to talk to him and let him know all will be well,” he said.
Adding, “The desire to meet as opposition albeit our differences cannot be contested. There are individuals who thought they were patrons of opposition and with patronising tendencies. If there are individuals who believe we are less deserving to lead, that is their problem.”
Mpuuga described some individuals in the opposition as wiseacres who think they own opposition.
“These are individuals who are wiseacres, thinking they own opposition both within and outside Parliament,” he noted.
Mao has in the past days launched attacks on NUP and its officials, calling them hypocrites and fake opposition.
He accused the party and its leadership of hypocrisy, betrayal, and corruption.
“A tornado is going to blow apart the plumage covering the red rooster’s behind exposing what is hidden. Keep your eyes peeled. You’re holier than thou attitude is a bogus facade for ineptness and corruption,” Mao said.
