While campaigning at Mende trading center in Mende Sub county
of Wakiso district on Monday, the former army commander of the Uganda People’s
Defence Forces (UPDF) said that security forces are currently making grave
mistakes because of the wrong orders issued by Gen. Museveni in his bid to
continue clinging onto power. He believes that the only way to subject the armed forces
to a relief is ending the 35-year-old regime in the coming election and retire President Museveni peacefully.
// “cue in: kubanga Gen. Museveni ..
Cue out: .. okulemera mubuyinza,” //
Muntu who was blocked by the police from campaigning in a
number of places in Wakiso district appreciates the developments realized under
President Museveni’s rule but insists that he has failed to deliver the most
important item of a peaceful transfer of power.
He said that there are countries which developed their
economies to an admirable level but they almost lost it all because of the
failure to respect the most desirable principle of ensuring a peaceful
transition leadership from one person to another.
Muntu told the people of Wakiso that Libya had extended
electricity and piped water to almost all its citizens, constructed better
roads than those of Uganda and ensured jobs to all graduates and other
developments but the country is now down to zero because of failure to
implement a peaceful transition.
// “cue in: Libya, amasannyalaze ..
Cue out: .. kikulu nyo nyo nnyo,” //
It is against this background that he requested the people of
Mende, Wakiso and Uganda in general to entrust him and those contesting for
positions of responsibility on the ANT ticket with their votes because they are tested and have respect for
Muntu explained that unlike President Museveni who took over
power before serving in other positions of responsibility for a reasonable
period of time, he served the country in different capacities which he ably completed
with great discipline.
He has assured them of restoring the term and age limits
attached to the presidency whose removal he contested while still in
// “cue in: era ssinga ebintambuza ..
Cue out: .. enzikiriza n’endowooza,” //
He urged Ugandans to financially support their political
parties by contributing a small fee towards their existence in order to counter
President Museveni who is using state resources in his bid to continue ruling Uganda.
Hamida Nassimbwa who is vying for Busiro East parliamentary
seat on the ANT ticket requested her constituents to entrust her and other party
candidates because they work as a team and they had better plans for Uganda’s
future than anyone else in the race.
