Newly nominated presidential, Amama Mbabazi, has said he will be Uganda’s president for the first time after 2016 general elections.

“I’m happy I came in after President Yoweri Museveni. This is how things will be…,” Amama told press at Namboole stadium after being nominated by the Uganda Electoral Commission.

Amama said while many things had been said about his candidature, he never responded in words because he would respond in action by being nominated.

“Uganda is going to experience change. From now one, we will reveal how we plan to change Uganda,” he said.

He also talked about The Democratic Alliance [TDA] saying their doors are still open although the alliance has suffered a few setbacks.

Asked on arrest rumours, Mbabazi said he is not accustomed to using that language and doesn’t respond to such.

He said they spoke out after getting information that he was going to be arrested although police denied the claim as baseless.

“We are aware of the obstacles in the electoral process in Uganda and we are ready to overcome them,” he pointed out.

“Our people are yearning for change and nothing will change it.”

Mbabazi said his camp has the strategy and tactics and is organised enough to make him president in 2016 elections.

On getting power, Mbabazi said he will ensure that there is peaceful transition of power from one generation to another.

Asked on whether his wife Jacqueline was poisoned, Mbabazi said he would talk about that in the future, revealing that she is improving.

Asked on when he is pulling followers from the NRM party, Mbabazi told the press to “wait and see”.

Mbabazi also said he was worried about his supporters who have been mistreated by the ruling party.

“I can’t believe that the NRM that fought for justice and freedom can do the things I witnessed.”
