Muntu, who was among the country’s longest serving army commanders, explained the use of guns to capture power has made leaders to overstay in power.
“I do not want to be like president Museveni who seized power by force and is still around knowing that the same gun will entrench his rule,” said Muntu.
The retired Former Army commander said the best way of replacing Museveni is uprooting his support from his western stronghold during the 2016 elections.
“If the western region can unanimously denounce him in the next presidential elections, other regions will follow and he will lose the elections,” said Muntu.
“The people of western Uganda have everything it takes to remove president Museveni and his National Resistance Movement from power if you deny him votes this time and change in Uganda will prevail.”
The FDC leader was responding to calls by supporters to use arms to overthrow Museveni.
Muntu further told a mammoth crowd that Museveni cannot be trusted.
“If Museveni could betray his bush war struggle and a close ally Amama Mbabazi whom he said he has always shared together Uganda’s top secrets including personal and those of national importance, then what about the common man?”
“I think you have been hearing how the two are now struggling for power. Power is in your hands.”
Museveni fears Mbabazi could be planning to stand for president in 2016, a charge the Prime Minister denies.
Speaking at the same function, former Ethics minister Hon Miria Koburunga Matembe attacked male legislators hailing from Ankole, singling out Kahinda Otafiire, former Sheema South MP Prof. Ephraim Kamuntu and Sheema North MP Dr. Elioda Tumwesigye for allowing Museveni to amend the Presidential term limits provision in the Constitution.
“We waged a huge battle with my friends Eng Winnie Byanyima and former Bushenyi District Woman MP the late Bernadette K Bigirwa in the seventh Parliament to resist Museveni’s tricks but we were betrayed by the likes of Otafiire.”
“My male counterparts from Ankole became cowards and they feared the President and now you can witness for yourself what is taking place in the country. If they had refused the amendment of the Constitution, Museveni would be history.”
The function was attended by a cross-section of political activists including Uganda People’s Congress Party President Dr. Olara Otunnu, Leader of opposition in Parliament Hon. Wafula Oguutu, Butambala MP Muwanga Kuvumbi, Bishop Zac Nyiringiye and Fr. Gaetano Batanyenda.
