The shadow ministers who include the minister of Agriculture, Animal industries and fisheries Francis Epetait, Betty Anywar the shadow minister of Energy, Oil and mineral resources together with the parliamentary government assurance committee boss Odonga Otto says that they can not support Mufabi to be the FDC president because he is not eligible to head a big party like FDC.

“Am supporting Major Gen Muntu for FDC president because he is the only person in FDC apart from Dr Besigye who can bring hope, vision and respect to Ugandans. Those who say that they do not need Major Gen Muntu because he is a westerner are trying to segregate people. There is no way of controlling this country without involving Westerners” Otto noted

“I don’t want the leader of the opposition at parliament Mafabi to take me as his enemy because of not supporting him. The fact is that Mugisha Muntu is more eligible than him” Otto added

Elsewhere the shadow minister of Energy, Oil and, mineral resources Betty Anywar says that she is supporting Muntu because he has enough experience in government  and he is capable to head both FDC and Uganda.

“Major Gen Muntu severed in Army for 10 years; he has the capacity to fight corruption because he is incorruptible which puts him in a  more suitable than Mafaba” Anywar stressed

“Although Mafabi is my boss at parliament, I will not support him because I want a person who has a vision of reconciling this country which can be only be done by Muntu not Mafabi.Major Gen Muntu is a man of God, very peaceful and ready to reconcile this nation” She noted

Other shadow ministers who crossed to Major Gen Muntu’s camp include; the shadow minister of Gender,labour and social development Ekwau Ibi Florence,Kevinah Wanaha Wandera the shadow minister of Tourism, Trade and Industry,Fungaroo Kaps Hassan the shadow minister of Defence,planning and economic development among others.

    It is not that Shadow MPs are shunning their boss; it is that they are following their conscience in choosing an FDC Party President. Shadow cabinet is not comparable to a national party like FDC. The Leader of Opposition, leaders elected opposition MPs, but a party presidents shall need to work with everybody to ensure that new members join the Party. This persons needs to be in FDC but not so engaged like Leader of Opposition. And someone who can respect people of all walks of life. That person is none other than Gen. Mugisha Muntu. Any person can decampaign Gen. Muntu but not grounds of wit, vision, consistency, mobilization skills,modesty, humility, leadership and respect, commitment among other attributes of a good leader.
