Forum for Democratic Change president, Mugisha Muntu, is at the helm of Kizza Besigye’s 2016 campaign team.
Muntu who lost the presidential flag bearer position to Besigye, said he would still support his fellow FDC member to ensure opposition captures power in the general elections.
FDC, Uganda’s biggest opposition party will kick start its countrywide public rallies this Saturday beginning in Rukungiri town, Besigye’s home district.
FDC youth activist, Moses Byamugyisha, says this is part of Besigye’s strategy which he presented to the National Executive Committee of the party on Wednesday.
FDC spokesperson, Ssemujju Nganda, confirmed that the countrywide campaign team will be headed by the party president, Muntu.
Nganda says they had divided themselves into three teams; the first team had Wafula Oguttu, Nganda himself, Geoffrey Ekanya and others.
The second team led by Besigye, had Salaamu Musumba, Ssebugwawo and others.
The third team was led by Secretary General, Nandala Mafabi, Jack Sabitti and others.
“All teams have been integrated into one team which will be led by Muntu,” Nganda said.
He also noted that in the initial programme, they will be having regional rallies where they will meet leaders ahead of next month’s nomination.
The party has also formed a 15-member committee led by Mafabi to finalise Besigye’s 2016 manifesto.
Addressing press in Kampala today, Besigye said they will take part in President Yoweri Museveni’s “fraudulent election” and still win it in the end.
This comes after the failure to secure electoral reforms which he has been fighting for.
