Ms Joyce Sebugwawo, the Lubaga division LC 3 chairperson, is confident if Ugandans are ever to get out of “NRM regime captivity”, FDC strongman, Kizza Besigye, is the answer.
Sebugwawo who was named Acting National chairperson of the opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) in 2013, was on Sunday campaigning for Besigye in Mukono town.
“If we want to get out of captivity, Dr. Kizza Besigye is the answer,” she said.
“We must know what the people of Uganda want. Am calculative, I know the winning candidate.”
Sebugwawo said together with Prof Bwogi Kanyerezi who was Dr. Besigye’s lecturer at Medical school in Makerere Unviersity, and other eight Kabaka’s ministers, they joined Besigye in 2001.
“We found a strong willed, courageous, straight forward person. We believe that he will lead us to the Promised Land.”
She asked Mukono residents to desist from using abusive language because “this is one family”.
“We must never give up.”
While some claim that Besigye dumped the party, Sebugwawo says the opposition icon stepped aside to give room to others.
“He has been moving around to popularise the party here and abroad. I want to inform you that he has done so.”
On the same event, Mukono municipality MP, Bakireke Nambooze, thanked Besigye for taking her for medication to South Africa when she was about to die of “the dictator’s poison”.
“Those saying that I should leave Besigye, where were you when I was sick? Would you find me in the graves?” she queried.
Besigye also met FDC delegates from the greater Mukono district, Kayunga, Buvuma and Buikwe at Jobiah hotel in Mukono town.
The team then connected with the masses at Kyaggwe Ssaza /county headquarters near St. Paul’s cathedral in Mukono town for a rally to drum support for the party.
Besigye was escorted by Kumi MP, Hon. Amuriat, Hon. Sesaga Budadiri, Hon. Roland Mugume, Hon. Nzoghu William, Owek. Joyce Nabosa Ssebugwawo, Hon. Betty. Nambooze, Mayor Mukono Muwanga Senyonga and other activists.
At the rally, Besigye dwelt on importance of mobilisation saying like charity, it starts at home.
“In areas where I come from and where I stay, those representing me are FDC. In Rukungiri, my area MP is Roland Kaginda of FDC and in Kasangati, my area MP is Hon. Ibrahim Nganda Ssemujju who is also FDC.”
He said this was an advantage they could utilise to mobilise support for the opposition to capture power in 2016.
Today, Besigye’s team will be heading to Lugazi, Buikwe, Mbiko, Njeru for more mobilisation campaigns and rallies.
According to Harold Kaija, an FDC diehard, the team will end with a radio program in Jinja.
Meanwhile, on Saturday, Besigye paid a visit to Godfrey Bbale, his supporter who was shot by police on the Nomination day of “The People’s President”.
Bbale is still undergoing medication.
