Penning his thoughts in a post on his twitter account on Saturday, Makali claimed that the fact remains that the country is in a mess because of a docile and mouthy sellout of an opposition which he says is supposed to check the government of the day.
He alleges that the opposition has been compromised to abdicate it's role and become a lapdog of the executive and accessory to its misdeeds, a post which has elicited mixed reactions from netizens.
"Fact is, we're in this hole because a docile and mouthy sellout of an Opposition that's supposed to check the government of the day has been compromised to abdicate it's role and become a lapdog of the Executive and accessory to its misdeeds," Said David Makali.
Here are some of the comments from netizens on Makali's claims:
"We are in this position because the populace likes the government of the day. It won't oppose a thing and if you try, it will be the first defender of the government's position. Our type of patriotism kills all opposition. Real or imagined. It is who we are," A comment read.
"Fact is, the Katiba you guys keep on praising is the one promoting imperial presidency. There's no official opposition leader in this katiba. You of all the people know this. Yet surprisingly, you don't want it ammended yet you want the help of the opposition," A comment read.
