After failing to defeat President Yoweri Museveni in two presidential runs, FDC leader Kizza Besigye does not deserve another opportunity, DP head Norbert Mao has said.
â€œItâ€™s now time to vote for someone who will trounce Museveni once and for all,â€ Mao said, adding that he was the best suited for the task. He was addressing a rally at Namwendwa trading centre in Kamuli district on Monday.
â€œMuseveni doesnâ€™t know my political tactics. But he knows I am good at defeating his big wheels like I did against the late Nobel Mayombo at Makerere University, Betty Bigombe in Parliament and Col. Walter Ochora in Gulu,â€ Mao said.
According to him, the north has been an opposition stronghold, noting that he was counting on their votes to start his ambition. Mao cautioned security operatives against intimidating opposition politicians and their supporters during the coming heated campaign period.
â€œIf you want to join politics, first surrender your military uniforms and arms, then come and we tussle it out on the field,â€ he noted. Mao said they would employ modern equipment to capture the identities of the Kiboko Squad members.
He also allayed fears that there would be a civil war in case Museveni lost the elections. Mao noted that Busoga was formerly a DP stronghold and urged the residents to return to the party.
Only I can trounce Museveni, Mao says
