Go Forward candidate, Amama Mbabazi, says he will create a Uganda that works for everyone.
Amama made the remarks while addressing a rally in Kasese town yesterday.
“When you go out to cast your vote, make sure you vote for change,” he told voters who turned up in large numbers.
He asked voters to “please stay at the polling stations until all votes have been counted so that don’t steal our votes”.
Amama said the hospitals will have the best doctors and drugs will be available to all the residents once he is voted into power in 2016 elections.
He faulted President Yoweri Museveni’s government for having failed its citizens when it comes to the issue of corruption.
“I intend to end it.”
Amama said the Go Forward manifesto will tackles issues like corruption, medicare and infrastructure.
“We are going to create jobs for the youth, but we must also improve our education system.”
He also promised to work on the Kasese airstrip and also on the issue of Kilembe mines.
“During my tenure, we shall work on Kilembe mines and ensure that there are jobs in that sector. We will also work on Kasese airstrip as this is important for tourism which contributes significantly to the economy of Kasese.”
“What do you when you find yourself in a bad situation? You change it, don’t you?”
He further promised to oversee the peaceful transition of power in Uganda come 2016.
“All the executive power in the government comes from the president and I am here to ask you to give me that power. I have to ask for vote for the coming presidential elections in 2016.”
Amama further appreciated the people of Kasese for the warm welcome.
Speaking in Fort Portal town a day before, Amama promised to restore cooperative unions.
“I took the opportunity to urge all people of Tooro to stay true to their culture of being peaceful people and not yield to provocation from any side especially the ruling party.”
The most pertinent issue for the people of Tooro, he said, is land grabbing.
