FDC presidential candidate, Kizza Besigye, spent the weekend in Kabale district where he pulled a mammoth crowd.
“Kabale is home to me right from my school time, I am always happy to be back home,” the retired colonel said.
“I remember the good old days, I know what we want and I am before you to serve you as your worker rather than being a boss to you.”
Besigye told the crowds that swarm his rallies that the difference he will bring is that “my leadership will respect the power of the people of Uganda”.
On Sunday, Besigye joined christians at Christ The King Catholic Church Kabale for a mass
“We are thankful of God’s blessings to us all. Thank you Father David Byaruhanga and all those who prayed for us in Kabale,” he later said.
Pictures from the event show Fr Byaruhanga blessing Besigye ahead of the February election.
“Not forgetting many of you who are working hard to make sure that this is a historic election of change. Your prayers are needed as we embark on our last push. God bless you all with your families this day,” he said before proceeding to the villages to look for votes.
When Museveni visited Kabale, he was also blessed by Fr Gaetano Batanyenda, in a move that shocked many.
The priest later explained that he was praying to God so he can guide Museveni to retire.
On Friday Besigye campaigned in Kiruhura, the home district of President Museveni and later Ibanda town.
He urged Kiruhura voters not to succumb to intimidation and vote a candidate who is not their choice.
“Vote secretly, don’t accept when you are told to tick from the table. Go and tick from a basin,” Besigye said in Kazo town council.
