Besigye to knockout Museveni in round one


FDC presidential candidate, has dismissed any hopes of a re-run in February 18 elections.

Besigye told his home town Rukungiri on Monday that he will knock out Museveni and his rivals in the race in round one.

“We will give them a knock out in round one. We will not give them a chance for round two,” he told the cheering crowd.

Besigye stood three times against Museveni and lost all of them.

“If you watch on televisions, you will realise that all opposing government and even those who have been supporting it are now united,” Besigye continued.

He said Ugandans eagerly want change.

“That is the good part of this election.”

Besigye was given a stool as a symbol of power.

In Rukungiri, Besigye received a massive homecoming ceremony that saw him offered a red carpet and gifts including goats and money.

He spent the entire day traversing the villages of Rukungiri canvassing for votes.

Besigye launched campaigns in Rukungiri town but did not campaign in other counties.

“It’s now up to everyone of us to spread the message of hope for real change,” he urged supporters.

“Let’s shake the big tree together since the roots are already out, branches falling off.”

He added: “On Feb 18th, I will have the power to end Kaguta Museveni’s patronage.”

He said RDCs “will be no more” and those making threats to shoot Ugandans will be fired.

He said its under NRM government that striking teachers have been threatened with a sack.

“We shall give unions a real voice.”

Besigye Team said it will not sleep until “we liberate the country has meticulously combed an incredible 102 districts out of the 112 districts within the limited”.

“Despite the prevalence of both physical and nonphysical challenges, no candidate has covered more districts than the Besigye campaign team.”

The team says its physical hurdles involved maneuvering through impassable roads, creating roads out of the bushes, endless pushing of vehicles in muddy surfaces in some parts of the country road networks are like panya routes completely untraceable roads.

“In Sebbei for example we had to detour a few meters into Kenya to get a road to find access into Uganda.”

“The nonphysical of course involved the hostilities rained on us from the police and an attack on our convoy by hooligans organized by the deputy speaker of parliament.”

Besigye has always said the ruling party that is fused with the state used the police in many districts to disrupt his rallies by arresting his mobilizers, confiscating their materials and defacing his posters.

“Nevertheless, we still managed to cover more grounds without the luxuries of a chopper and a grader to clear the roads, we now have a manageable 10 districts left to cover.”

Besigye spent two days in Kabale last week because the district has 7 huge constituencies and “if you have been tracking our campaign our rallies are mostly concentrated in visiting all sub county”.

He will be revisiting Masaka and Wakiso to comb more sub counties in the district.

“Therefore, to our supporters countrywide we still have 16 days to voting day, with only 10 districts left, we are going to campaign in more places in the coming days. We shall wind up our campaigns by spending 4 days in Kampala.”
