The group is being commanded by Habib Buwembo, one of the FDC party members, and it has been backed and launched officially by a renowned activist, Dr. Stella Nyanzi, today in Mutundwe, a Kampala city suburb, in Lubaga Division.

Buwembo said, their aim is to recruit 2000 members from each Division that makes up Kampala City.

He added that although they are not an armed militia group, they will make sure, they cover other areas outside Kampala, to ensure that FDC votes are not rigged.

With the existence of the United Forces Brigade, Nyanzi, said, they will not give any body a chance to block their activities during the elections.
