Opposition Democratic Party has expressed disappointment with the newly sworn in United States president Barack Obama.
According to Jude Mbabali the party PRO, they expected Obama who won his second term to the White House to uproot all what they called dictators in Africa.
“DP had a lot of hope in Obama, he promised to uproot all the dictators in Africa and Museveni and Mugabe are the best dictators” said during the weekly press conference in Kampala on Tuesday.
Mbabali called upon Obama to develop concern and concentrate on dealing with dictatorship in Africa like what he did with Gaddafi.
He said that Obama must note that there is political repression in Uganda and people live in a society where the rule of law gives way to the rule of brutality and bribery.
“This is not democracy, it is tyranny but sprinkle seemingly democratic elections and now is the time for president Obama to assist us to end this style of governance in Uganda” he said.
President Obama got lots of attention at the start of his first term and during his visit to Ghana in 2009 after the G20 meeting in Italy, he blasted African leaders for misruling the continent and condemning its people to poverty and backwardness.
“Repression can take many forms, and too many nations, even those that have elections, are plagued by problems that condemn their people to poverty,” Obama said.
