The return of Kizza Besigye to the political frontline in Uganda to lead a new pressure group called The Front for Transition, was snubbed by ... the main opposition party National Unity Platform (NUP) of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine. The new party has upped suspicion among Wine supporters, but has also reignited debate of what has been the main problem bedevilling opposition parties in Uganda. And the problem is disunity.
Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok delivered his message emphatically – “we have to rebuild our economy if our political transition is to work.”
That means listening to the calls for economic opportunities from the hundreds of thousands of revolutionaries who had mobilised across the country against the brutality and corruption of then president Omar al-Bashir and the Islamist National Congress Party regime.
