Former agriculture minister and senior mobilizer in the pressure group, Go-Forward, Hope Mwesigye, has launched her campaign to recapture Kabale District Woman Parliamentary seat, which she lost in the 2011 general elections.
Mwesigye who is also a sister in law to the independent presidential candidate, Amama Mbabazi on Monday launched her bid at Bufundi Sub -County with a call on Ugandans to abandon President Museveni whom she said is tired and has nothing fresh to offer to Ugandans after 30 years in power.
The former minister said that Uganda has enough resources for its entire citizen, but very few people especially those in power and their families continue to enjoy good life as majority of Ugandans that pay the taxes languish in poverty.
‘Museveni and his small clique in state house spend one million per minutes yet millions of Ugandans are going without medicines and enough health workers in their respective health centres,’ Mwesigye told hundreds of supporters who turned up for her first rally at Bufundi sub county.
Kabale District woman Parliamentary seat has attracted four candidates and they include the incumbent ,Rona Rita Ninsiima independent, NRM Catherine Ndamira, Viola Nahabwe of Uganda People’s Congress and Hope Mwesigye of NRM pressure group Go-forward.
