Free Uganda Chairman and former coordinator of intelligence services, General David Sejusa, is now preaching coordination of all groups involved in the struggle to form what he calls “an army of free citizens”.
According to Sejusa, opposition must build the capacity of the People of Uganda to “resist vote-rigging, killings and the capture of power by President Yoweri Museveni through force”.
“My guidance at this critical juncture in our country’s history is that Free Uganda will work with and support all groups involved in the struggle, but our emphasis is on building capacity to resist the dictatorship,” Sejusa said in a short statement.
He added: “And, just as we have been doing in this patriotic endeavour, we shall continue to guide, coordinate, share capacity, etc., with any group fighting for freedom.”
In a statement issued by Dr. Vincent Magombe, Secretary Free Uganda Leadership Committee, and Press Secretary FU, Sejusa calls upon opposition to encourage the people to organise themselves into “an Army of Free Citizens” saying “people and not individual political leaders, will resist Museveni vote rigging”.
Sejusa says opposition has managed to eclipse NRM in national election campaigns, with ordinary Ugandans rallying behind the two main opposition leaders, Dr. Kizza Besigye and Amama Mbabazi in incredibly huge numbers, even in the remotest of villages.
He says the “ecstatic display of support for the opposition” has rendered Museveni extremely worried about the increasingly successful mobilization skills by the two main opposition presidential candidates, “so much so that he, (Museveni), is now openly and evidently putting in place elaborate plans to sabotage the outcome of the coming vote, scheduled to take place early in 2016”.
Millions of state-sponsored militias, backed up with tens of thousands of Special Forces Command troops, commanded by Museveni’s son Brigadier Muhoozi Kaneirugaba, says Sejusa, are being assembled and mobilized with the sole intent of helping to ensure that Museveni wins the elections, even when he will have been denied the support of the majority of Ugandan voters.
Museveni, according to the former spy, can only be defeated by an equally mobilized and effectively empowered citizenry, who must be prepared to proactively counter the rigging machinery, to the extent of rising up in a powerful People Power Revolt as necessary.
In this endeavour, Sejusa urged opposition leaders to play their part in mobilizing and the bring awareness to the masses in the cities, towns, and villages across Uganda, so that the Dictator is denied even the smallest drop of rigging opportunity, as has happened in past elections.
The “Army of Free Citizens” is based on what Sejusa calls the ‘Rear Guard Action Groups (RGAGs).
Rear Guard Action Groups are resistance cells in all parts of the country with the capacity to organise other citizens into ‘Vote Guarders’, but, in the eventuality of action requirement, to organise groups in readiness to take orders.
Sejusa is on record for saying the result of the 2011 presidential elections were doctored by special units of state intelligence at a secret location before being given to the Kiggundu Electoral Commission to declare.
He says it is imperative, therefore, for the opposition leaders to preach the gospel of liberation to the masses, who are now attending opposition rallies in their millions.
