Former Go Forward presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi says by 2021, the whole of Kanungu district will be behind him.
Amama stood against President Yoweri Museveni during the 2016 general elections and lost.
He went to court to challenge the results only to have his petition thrown out for lack of evidence.
He was on Sunday speaking at a thanksgiving ceremony of a Go Forward member and Kanyatorongo sub county LC3 chairman, Kenneth Tumuhamye.
This was his first appearance in his home district since elections.
Mbabazi requested President Museveni for a meeting with other opposition candidates to discuss how best they can keep Uganda peaceful after elections.
“Both losers and winners, we are all winners because we tried,” Mbabazi told his audience.
He congratulated Go Forward candidates who won elections in February.
He said by 2021, he will have ensured that the whole district supports Go Forward pressure group.
“Nobody will go through under any other ticket in Kanungu come 2021 apart from Go Forward,” Amama said.
He said during the February election, some Go Forward people contested under other tickets.
Mbabazi said personally he has never left the ruling party NRM.
“I just separated from its leaders.”
He added: “I am strong and nothing will change my resolve to fight for peace and change. It is what I have been since childhood and it is what I will die for.”
Kanungu LC5 chairperson Josephine Kasya asked all leaders and civil servants to put a side politics and work for the people of Kanungu district.
Emeritus Bishop John Wilson Ntegyerize who led the service asked politicians to work hand in hand with church leaders to stabilise the country.
The chairperson for Kanyantorongo Tumuramye thanked people who came in large number to accompany him during his thanks giving where Shs6m was collected.
