THE Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential hopeful, Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu, has assured supporters that the party will remain strong after the November 22 elections.
Muntu, who was campaigning for the party’s top office in Kayunga district, said supporters should not get worried about the party’s future because of what is happening in their campaigns.
He did not elaborate but added that because of democracy in the party, it would even be stronger after the election of the new party president.
“Because of democracy in the party, I contested twice against the outgoing party president, Dr. Kizza Besigye and the party moved on,” Muntu said.
He called upon Ugandans to put their trust in FDC to liberate the country from poverty, corruption and poor service delivery.
“President Yoweri Museveni says he brought democracy in the country yet he has never allowed any member of NRM to contest against him for the party chairmanship for the people to exercise democracy,” Muntu stated.
He added: “You cannot give what you don’t have. That is why we are asking all Ugandans to support FDC because in the ruling NRM party, there is no democracy like in FDC.”
Muntu, who avoided commenting about Nathan Nandala Mafabi, the other contestant for the seat, asked FDC delegates from Kayunga to vote for him, saying he was the only candidate capable of leading the party to power.
“I was the army commander for nine years and I will use the experience I have in that field to shake and oust NRM from power using various techniques,” Muntu said amidst cheers from his supporters.
Muntu, Mafabi and Tororo County MP Geoffrey Ekanya are tussling it out to replace Besigye.
