Speaking about his first week of campaigns in different parts of Uganda, Muntu
said that his experience with the voters has been the same.
“We have met
enthusiasm from the population. We have sustained the message that we keep
pushing out to them, raising the hopes of the population that they need to be
confident that change is possible and that actually with the participation of
the population that we can change the direction of politics in this country,”
He also notes that one of the outstanding complaints from the population that
his campaign team has interfaced with is the unfulfilled pledges made in the
past presidential campaigns.
