FDC president candidate, Kizza Besigye, spent Friday campaigning in Kiruhura district, the home district of President Yoweri Museveni.
In Sanga subcounty- Kiruhura district, people raised money for the Besigye’s fuel.
“Change is coming even to the people of Rushere,” Besigye noted as supporters handed him NRM cards.
Besigye aka Mr Swagger urged the crowd to “unite, together and we liberate ourselves”.
“You are selling one litre of your milk at Shs 700…. but spend Shs 2000 to buy a litre of drinking water… this must change,” he said.
He made another stop over at Omukitongore Ekigaiga where supporters waved FDC posters and cheered.
Besigye then entered Kazo county which for years has been “monopolised” by Hon John Nasasira.
“We want an independent and competent state,” Besigye told the crowd.
According to his handlers, the OC Kazo, a one Musinguzi reportedly attacked Besigye and damaged the windscreen of his vehicle.

Visits kraal disguised as a school
While police has been stopping Besigye from visiting state institutions including schools, in Kiruhura, they exhibited some loopholes which the opposition candidate utilised to his advantage.
Besigye visited and inspected another rotten primary school in Kiruhura district.
“The school is in a very sorry state,” his handlers told us.
According to Besigye’s team, at first they mistook the school for a kraal and vice versa.
“Water tanks, latrines and school blocks that were set up by donor funds mainly USAID are dilapidated beyond repair.”
Kiruhura is the home district of President Yoweri Museveni who has been in power for the last three decades.
Worse, the rotten school was built using foreign aid but it compares with a cattle enclosure [kraal].
Besigye later entered Nyabushozi constituency, the home of Col Fred Mwesigye.
He was received by thousands of people who came to listen to his defiance message.
He noted the high poverty levels in the area saying people could not even afford basic human needs.
“You can’t even afford to educate your children. That is why time for change is now,” Besigye painfully reminded the residents.
The retired colonel pushed on to Ibanda district to conclude his day.
