Nyendo-Mukungwe MP, Mathias Mpuuga Nsamba, has called for honest dialogue among change-seeking forces to ensure a peaceful transition of power in Uganda.

Speaking at his thanksgiving mass at Kitovu Sports Arena in Masaka City on Friday, Mpuuga emphasized the importance of shifting the political landscape towards peaceful leadership transitions rather than bitter confrontations.

Mpuuga, a member of the National Unity Platform (NUP), acknowledged internal conflicts within his party but pledged to focus on building unity among opposition parties.

“It has been over 60 years since we gained independence, but we continue to regard each other as enemies. It is time now that we define what divides us and unite for our common progress as a country,” he said.

He urged change-seeking forces to avoid pride, selfishness, and confrontational behaviour, which he argued hindered efforts toward a political transition.

Mpuuga emphasized the need for mutual respect and reflection on the opinions of all stakeholders to collectively shape the future of Uganda.

Despite facing ridicule, hatred, unfounded accusations, and betrayal from within his party, Mpuuga remains committed to championing good governance principles.

He has faced challenges, including calls from NUP’s top leadership to resign from his position as Parliamentary Commissioner after receiving a 500 million shillings “service award” while serving as Leader of Opposition.

Busiro East MP, Medard Lubega Ssegona, also called for reconciliation within NUP and urged the leadership to enforce discipline among its members. He expressed optimism that the party could recover from current disputes and regain public confidence.

Monsignor John Baptist Ssebayigga, representing Kampala Archbishop Paul Ssemogerere, led the mass and challenged leaders to promote unity and fairness for the country’s betterment.
