Coordinator of Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) Gen Mugisha Muntu has said that despite a few individuals coming out actively to work overnight to make sure change is delivered, many decide to seat back only to wait for change to happen.
“People want change but don’t want to work for it,” Muntu says.
Muntu however says, at times, individuals aren’t the problem but the cultures that have been built by leaders.
“There is frustration among people. Since independence, politicians have been saying nice things but nothing physical to show for it. People want change but don’t know how to achieve it. Some are fearful of the uncertainty that comes with the change,” he states.
He believes that the opposition should push to occupy more political space than the ruling regime.
He says, “The more seats you take, the more you build confidence in people. I don’t think people should give up because taking power is a process.”
As a party coordinator of a ‘baby’ party, Muntu claims he is in to streamline the opposition political arena.
“We (Alliance for National Transformation) don’t panic, we are not emotional; we are consistent and persistent. We are bent on redirecting the path of this country politically,” he says.
