A shocking revelation has emerged that all opposition political parties in Uganda have been infiltrated by government agents, sparking concerns about the integrity of the country's democratic process.

Sources within the parties have confirmed that government operatives have infiltrated the highest echelons of the opposition, gathering intelligence, influencing decision-making, and sowing seeds of discord.

The infiltration is alleged to be a systematic effort to weaken the opposition, discredit their leaders, and maintain the ruling party's grip on power.

Opposition leaders have expressed outrage and concern, saying:

"Our parties have been compromised, and our ability to effectively challenge the government has been severely undermined."

The implications are far-reaching, with many fearing that the infiltration will lead to:

Manipulation of opposition policies and decisions, Disruption of opposition events and activities, Character assassination of opposition leaders, Erosion of public trust in the opposition, Consolidation of power by the ruling party

The government has denied the allegations, but opposition parties are calling for an investigation and urgent measures to safeguard their integrity.

This development raises questions about the future of democracy in Uganda and the ability of the opposition to hold the government accountable.
