FDC tells Museveni to handover power during state of nation address

Museveni State of Nation

President Yoweri Museveni is expected to deliver the State Of The Nation address today, Tuesday afternoon.

This will mark the beginning of the first session of the 10th parliament.

Speaker Rebecca Kadaga, while swearing in early in the month, said the president would deliver the state of nation address on May 31.

Museveni promised that his fifth term will be one of work to take the country to a middle-income status.

His address is likely to focus on energy and infrastructural development.

Meanwhile, the opposition has asked the president to instead of delivering the address today, handover power to Kizza Besigye who allegedly won the 2016 general elections.

According to the electoral commission, Besigye trailed President Museveni with 35 percent against 6o percent.

Addressing press at the party head offices in Najjanankumbi on Monday, FDC spokesperson Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda said handing over power and releasing Besigye from Luzira prison is what they expect of Museveni.

“What we expect Mr. Yoweri Kaguta Museveni to say at State of the nation Address is when he is handing over power.”

He said the party was also calling upon the international community to pressurise government to free Besigye who is accused of treason.
