“Museveni is only president up to May ,” Kizza Besigye announced while speaking at Mayor’s Gardens in Kisoro town on Wednesday.
Besigye fell out with Museveni back in early 2000s saying the president had deviated from the NRM principles.
He stood against Museveni in 2001 elections, 2006 and 2011 elections losing them all.
Today, Besigye gave the corrupt officials in Museveni’s government a grace period until May next year to steal as much as they can.
“The corrupt can only steal up to May. After May, whoever dips his hand in government coffers, it will stay in there,” Besigye said.
Besigye, escorted by FDC chairman Wasswa Birigwa and FDC president Mugisha Muntu, spent the day traversing Kisoro villages.
He addressed mini-rallies in Mulumba village where he slammed the poor road network characterised by slippery and impassable roads.
He promised to build a modern, robust and versatile infrastructure.
Speaking at Mayor’s Gardens, Besigye told a rally that his government shall focus on empowering different persons to help them leave meaningful lives.
He promised to empower young people, invest in women, sports, entertainment and creative arts industry.
He said the FDC has good programs which will include revamping the education system and ensuring a robust health care system.
He also promised to digitize Uganda through optic fibre cable.
“We want an empowered local government where resources are shared 50-50 between central and local governments.”
He added: “We shall establish a functional executive, efficient Parliament, independent, professional ethical and efficient judiciary.”
Besigye said the FDC has better programs on boosting economic capacity and capability, through restructuring agriculture and industry.
After holding successful rallies, Besigye met FDC Kisoro district mobilizers and the leaders of P10 (POWER 10).
