“While Col. Samson Mande called for the use of arms to overthrow Museveni’s dictatorship at a debate in London, that is not our party position,” Wafula told press today Monday at FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi, Kampala.

This mighty website broke the story that Col. Besigye had met Col. Mande during a political debate organised by FDC-UK chapter.

Mande told the conference the only way to bring about the end of what he termed as ‘Museveni’s dictatorship’ was to bomb the President out of power.

The debate was dominated by war-mongering and calls for federalism to be implemented in Uganda.

The function has since caused problems for Besigye. Military officials are now investigating why Besigye and Mande was invited to address Ugandans living in Diaspora on the same platform.

“It was more than a political debate. Why did they indulge in war-mongering? Why did they invite a rebel to address an FDC-organised conference?” a concerned security official asked.

Oguttu, now says much as Ugandans want to get rid of Museveni at all costs, FDC has no intention to use guns against the establishment.

“Col. Mande’s calls for war are his personal opinions not of FDC,” Oguttu clarified.

Besigye has in the past hinted on causing regime change using guns.

At the UK conference, Besigye said. “The possibility of overthrowing Museveni using arms is possible. But the problem is that you remove one dictator with a gun and replace him with another dictator.”
