FDC supporters in western Uganda have launched daily peaceful demonstrations in the region “to compel Mr. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to surrender power”.
Western Region FDC publicity secretary, Peter Byamukama, says they have decided to launch countrywide peaceful demostrations to push for what belongs to them.
He was speaking during the weekly FDC prayers held at the party offices in Mbarara.
Byamukama says this is in line with article one of Uganda’s constitution, which says power belongs to people.
“Therefore we ask all youth to support this cause and we rescue Uganda from the tyranny of Museveni.”
Byamukama reiterated Kizza Besigye’s call to block the swearing in ceremony of President Yoweri Museveni scheduled for May this year.
He accuses the president of using state machinery to cling onto power even when he “lost elections”.
“This time we are not allowing Museveni to swear in as our legitimate president is stopped from moving and accessing his people.”
While leading the prayers, Davis Nizeyimana, the head of healing and deliverance at All saints church Mbarara, said Museveni has held Ugandans captive.
He warned the president to beware the wrath of God whose people he has chained in bad leadership.
“Let them arrest us for nothing but this time God will help us as you all know we are all in chains,” the priest said.
