FDC party president, Mugisha Muntu, says Uganda risks falling into turmoil of President Yoweri Museveni doesn’t leave power in 2016.
Muntu made the remarks in Kabale on Tuesday insisting that if wins the 2016 elections, the country may fall into chaos as is happening in Somalia.
Muntu who is campaigning for FDC presidential flag bearer appealed to western Uganda to release President Museveni “so that he can go alone not with our country”.
“If Mr Museveni is announced the winner in 2016, I predict what you see happening in Somalia shall be seen here because majority people want change,” Muntu is quoted as saying.
He said the opposition FDC can provide alternative good and democratic leadership if given an opportunity.
Muntu reminded the people that power lies in their hands and if they chose, they could make the president leave in peace.
In the evening, Muntu appeared on Voice of Kigezi radio where reminded opposition that the only way to win is to unite.
He said Museveni does not fear individuals like Muntu or Kizza Besigye or Amama Mbabazi but unity and organisation.
“Museveni fears unity of purpose and organisation. He aims to destroy any group that threatens him,” Muntu said.
“That is why we (FDC) have been trying to build our structures, organise and unite the masses behind us.”
Muntu who has concluded tours of western Uganda; Bunyoro, Toro, Rwenzori, Kigezi and Ankole sub regions, is now headed for remaining sub regions.
“We have already arrived in West Nile sub region,” he said in a social media message.
He added: “We shall be meeting all our delegates from this sub region in Koboko. There after we shall be heading to Acholi, Karamoja, Lango and Teso. We shall wrap up with the rest of the sub regions of Bugisu, Bukedi, Sebei, Busoga and Buganda.”
