Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] spokesperson, Ssemujju Nganda, says he is shocked by the way in which candidate, Kizza Besigye, is being treated.
“What worries me most is the condition in which Kizza Besigye is living in,” Nganda said.
Appearing on NBS TV morning breeze programme Tuesday, Nganda said the solution for Uganda’s predicament is not through unity government.
“It is through holding transparent, free and fair elections.”
Nganda said if they as FDC fail to petition court, they will present and explain to the public.
“We have evidence of electoral fraud. This is not our thing, it is for all Ugandans. We must find a solution collectively.”
Nganda reminded President Yoweri Museveni that himself [Museveni] said the problem of Africa is leaders who cling and overstay in power.
He said now the military is on the streets and the whole country is in a state of panic.
“We are almost under the military rule [of past regimes].”
Baryomunsi insists Besigye lost
Appearing on the same programme, State Minister of Health for General Duties, Chris Baryomunsi, said it was media and opposition that created an impression that Besigye was going to win.
“When the election results were announced, people started saying they were rigged,” he pointed out.
The minister said it’s an abuse to say Ugandans never voted or participated.
“We all saw people turning out.”
He also dismissed the allegation that no one celebrated Museveni’s victory saying: “It is wrong to say people never celebrated. People in Kanungu celebrated.”
Baryomunsi said Besigye’s utterances during campaigns were so clear and loud.
“He showed he wanted to cause unrest in Kampala.”
He said President Museveni is not here to please foreign media.
“What matters is Ugandans made a decision.”
