Mr. Mao was addressing a TDA press conference at former premier Amama Mbabazi’s home in Nakasero this afternoon, and he made the remarks while stressing that as TDA theirs is a peaceful struggle which isn’t after just removing President Museveni from power but after introducing democratic, accountable leadership through non-violent means. The TDA press conference was organized so Mr. Mbabazi and other TDA leaders to speak to the nation about the Supreme Court ruling that dismissed Mr. Amama Mbabazi’s election petition “Our struggle isn’t just after removing the person of president Museveni from power, but after introducing democratic, accountable leadership in the country,” the DP president said. “So we won’t hire an assassin to finish off Mr. Museveni. “Otherwise, there is surely someone out there in Belarus, Ukraine, name it, who would willingly receive the money to assassinate Museveni.” In the same speech Mr. Mao also stressed the need for opposition leaders across the country to educate the masses on how they can successfully challenge and topple the current regime through peaceful means. “We won’t advise our people to carry stones in the street so as to respond to the violence of state operatives. We shall only show them how to succesfully fight a repressive regime,” Mao thundered. Mr Mao is the first opposition politician to go on record talking about a possible assassination of President Museveni.
