Yoweri Museveni, the NRM presidential candidate has lashed out at opposition leaders under The Democratic Alliance-TDA for playing divisive politics.

 
He particularly singles out Independent Presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi and FDC's Kizza Besigye for attempting to drag the country to the past, where some politicians split Ugandans along religious and tribal lines.
 
 
Museveni who is on his campaign trail in Sheema and Buhweju districts, accuses Mbabazi and his allies in TDA for hoodwinking Ugandans that they will take power from the ruling government come February 2016.


Using a Lunyankore proverb, Museveni told voters in Sheema this morning, that TDA membership is too weak to form a government, adding that political alliances will never succeed in Uganda because of sectarian tendencies.


//Cue in: "Omukago nagwo...........
Cue out:..........fifty percent."//


He urged Ugandans to shun the opposition members saying they have already shown a sign of failure by failing to agree amongst themselves
.
 
Museveni also explained that he decided to sack Amama Mbabazi from government because he was politically naive.  He vowed to expel any other NRM member who acts contrary to the NRM constitution.
