Opposition leader Kizza Besigye has said whether he is arrested or not, he will announce a people’s government very soon.
The opposition leader made the remarks on Monday in an online conversation with Radio Uganda Boston listened to by many Ugandans in the diaspora.
“Whether I am arrested or not, #SitukaMay5 will go ahead. I am confident of the will of Ugandans,” Besigye said in reference to the May 5 demonstration which was banned by Court of Appeal on Friday.
“In a very short time we shall be announcing a people’s Government and the diaspora will still have a part to play,” Besigye assured the diaspora supporters.
He thanked all Ugandans in the diaspora for taking part in the “Free my vote” demonstrations all over the world.
“After all this is done, we shall reorganise our political institutions to work as they should under a democracy system,” he added.
Last Friday evening, National Resistance Movement [NRM] ran to Justice Steven Kavuma for an interim injunction to stop FDC’s weekly prayers and all forms of defiance including talk shows on radio and television.
In Saturday Monitor, Justice Tsekooko said NRM cadres judges were killing court image.
“Justice Steven Kavuma acted unfairly and one sided. The ruling is one of the things on the list I will defy as we can see that the courts are being abused by partisan judicial officers,” Besigye told press on Saturday at his home.
“I know the rights enshrined in the constitution which Justice Steven Kavuma and I took part in drafting.”
“We have evidence that we won the elections and all we want as a political party is an Independent body to table it. Uganda does not have legitimate President because I was denied a right to challenge the polls. ”
