Why doesn’t his best man Sejusa join him to recover his victory like Mugisha Muntu did?” wondered Mande, what is ed who is also in exile in Sweden after his rebel group, more about People’s Redemption Army (PRA), was annihilated from the jungles of Ituri, DRC, in the early 2000s.


Mande’s remarks came against the backdrop of Sejusa’s claims that Besigye had won the 2006 presidential election with a 69 percent and that intelligence agencies which were involved in the rigging of the exercise had to twist results so as to give Museveni a 59 percent win.


“Instead Sejusa who admits to have been one of those that robbed Besigye’s victory launches another political party to compete with him instead of joining the FDC in their bid to recover the lost victory,” Mande charged.


“When Maj. Gen Mugisha Muntu realized he was serving a wrong camp he came out apologized and joined the people in the struggle to change the regime. He humbled himself before Colonel Kizza Besigye despite the fact that Mugisha Muntu was senior in rank. He acquired membership in the FDC and served ordinarily.”


Mande further stated that Muntu could have formed a political party but realised that it would be just proliferation and fragmentation rather than consolidation of the opposition against Museveni’s NRM.


“Mugisha Muntu also sympathised with Dr Kizza Besigye and tried to help him recover the lost victory. No wonder a good number of members of FDC have rewarded Mugisha Muntu to lead them, despite the controversies surrounding his election,” he observed.


The fugitive Colonel has in recent months stepped up harsh rhetoric against Gen Sejusa, at times accusing the latter of committing atrocities in Northern Uganda.


Observers say the animosity between Mande and Sejusa started way back during the war in Northern Uganda where the two army officers clashed on how to conduct military operations against insurgents who were rebelling against President Museveni’s government.


Mande recently claimed that Sejusa was highhanded and that the latter was to blame for a string of atrocities in the region.


Sejusa denies the charges.


“It is very true that Dr Kizza Besigye has been winning elections but robbed of his victory Why is Sejusa then not willing to join Dr Kizza Besigye and help him recover his victory but he is instead launching a political party to compete against the good doctor and his best man?” Mande wondered.


Ugandans living in Diaspora have since intimated to Chimpreports that Mande has for a long time been in talks with government officials to facilitate his return from exile after reconciling with President Museveni.


Both Mande and Sejusa were pivotal in the NRA war that brought Museveni to power in 1986 and also defeating militants in the north who had taken up arms against the ruling government.
