Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] president, Mugisha Muntu, was forced to fold his sleeves and wallow in the mud somewhere in the forests of Kanungu district.
In an incident that saw the Kizza Besigye campaign team stuck for several hours, Muntu also took part in the pushing of a truck that was stuck in the road blocking the convoy.
This is the third time in the same week that Besigye’s team is stuck in impassable upcountry roads delaying his rallies.

The team was first stuck in Kajara county Ntungamo district on Tuesday and then Kisoro villages on Wednesday.
Today, Besigye was once more met bad roads and broken bridges on his way to Kihihi town in Kanungu district.
Besigye was forced to use his own car to tow a stuck truck.
He is also seen standing in the muddy road with soiled trousers.
Gen Muntu too had to soil his white shirt to push the truck off the road.
It took up to 4pm, only two hours to the official campaign closing time for Besigye’s convoy to reach Kihihi town.
Addressing a mini-rally at Kihihi, Besigye said when “this corrupt government is out of power next year, the tarmac road that started from Ntungamo and ended in Rukungiri will be extended up to here Kanungu up to the boarder.”
Before Kihihi, Besigye addressed other smaller rallies at Mpungu at Butogota.
He is now in Kanungu town addressing his main rally.
