Charles Rwomushana, a political analyst, says FDC presidential flag bearer, Dr Kizza Besigye, is too desperate to capture power and will stop at nothing.
The former chief of political intelligence desk in State House was speaking ahead of the concluded FDC Namboole Delegates Conference.
Speaking on NBS TV morning breeze programme, Rwomushana started by attacking the ruling party.
He said NRM has lied for the past 30 years and are now teaching the new cadres how to do the same.
“Amama Mbabazi was hounded out of the NRM party through the Kyankwanzi Resolution and most of the opposition members are NRM cast always.”
He turned attention to FDC saying, it was not right for the FDC party to parade its assets for everyone to see.
Another political analyst, Mary Mutesi, also pointed out: “The fact that Ugandans were giving Besigye money for campaigns is a sign that they aren’t poor”.
As for the impasse that happened at Namboole where police clashed with Besigye supporters, Mutesi said police was “merely carrying out the order from FDC officials who didn’t want campaigns posters displayed at the venue of the delegates conference”.
She said while Muntu’s campaign was based on establishing structures, Besigye concentrated on the masses [perhaps this explains the outcome at the delegates conference].
Muntu camp also accused Besigye of “smuggling in” fake delegates halting the conference for hours.
Rwomushana compares this to the way NRM delegates conference at Namboole had fake delegates meant to oust Amama Mbabazi in December 2014.
“Besigye is so desperate for power.”
He wondered why MPs loyal to Mugisha Muntu voted for the constitution amendment bill instead of abstaining or voting no.
He was sceptical as to whether Ugandans can trust the newly created The Democratic Alliance (TDA).
The Sheraton debate
Rwomushana called for a further interrogation of how and who set questions for Muntu and Besigye during their Sheraton NTV presidential debate.
“Ofcourse I was watching and following Mr Charles Mwanguhya. He was not alone. He was being fed. The question whether Mr Besigye was ready to be on the ballot paper was critical, was initially a trap and a snare and it instead demolished the intended beneficiary Mr Muntu.”
He said Muntu made a case for participation in the elections and Besigye made a case for no elections before reforms saying although the reforms “are not there and won’t be given”, it is as if the Namboole group voted for No Elections.
“The only way you can impose No Elections to Museveni is through War to paralyze ground. Therefore in very crystal clear terms, the FDC Namboole gathering voted for war.”
“Besigye reminded that gathering that Muntu for FDC committed to the Hotel Africana document which binds TDA to No Elections before reforms (reforms that won’t be any way…). Therefore TDA is for war also.”
Rwomushana concludes that “armed violence as a means of struggle is now legitimate before Uganda’s opposition”.
