Mbabazi delays manifesto over TDA


Amama at a rally this week

Presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi, has postponed the launching of his 2016 manifesto earlier scheduled for this Saturday.

Amama who was sacked as Prime Minister and ruling party NRM Secretary General is running as an independent under The Democratic Alliance, a coalition of opposition political parties.

In a short statement, Amama said the Manifesto launch that was slated for today has been postponed to allow for a peer review.

“We are also using this time to allow our TDA (U) partners time to integrate their ideas in the Manifesto.”

He added: “We appreciate your patience and understanding and will inform you of the new date for the launch.”

Mbabazi is still in talks with Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate, Dr Kizza Besigye.

The two disagreed in Kampala and once more in Nairobi where they met Kenya opposition leader, Raila Odinga.

Their last meeting was in London under the auspices of former UN secretary general, Kofi Annan Foundation.

Appearing on a radio talk-show on Kanungu Broadcasting Services (KBS) radio in Kanungu, on Thursday, Besigye said he was working with Mbabazi to remove President Yoweri Museveni from power.

Besigye revealed that he was in “agreement” with Mbabazi to work for change and to put in place a pro-people and efficient government.

“We had little time to build the alliance, the time was not enough for us to build consensus.”

On TDA, Besigye said all opposition including Amama’s Go Forward pressure group is committed to remove Museveni.

“Our energy and focus now is to ensure that the current system goes.”

He added: “What will succeed it is not yet clear. We shall continue to work together so that what is there goes, and after that we will work out what to put in the place.”

Besigye swore on air never to betray the struggle for change.

“There is nothing I want in this world other than leaving this country better than we found it. I call upon the youth to come and work with us such that we work to regain power and we leave you with it.”
