 “A dialogue is very good, but you don’t go into a dialogue pretending that the conditions are good. Even in war situations, they declare a cease-fire then go and talk. The cease-fire hasn’t been declared” he said.

“Let Mr. Museveni demonstrate good faith. You start by freeing people detained. After that, invite people to discuss the future. After all, their campaign slogan was “Securing the future” he added.
