“I can assure you this is a turning point for Uganda. We shall not move backwards,” roared the former army commander.

Muntu urged all the FDC delegates and supporters to work together in order to build a culture of hard work, sacrifice, value- based leadership if they are to remove NRM from power.

“Once these values are entrenched within the party, then they will be given out to the whole country,” he said.

There were 10 polling stations in the stadium. Out of 776 votes cast, 6 were invalid. Muntu won with 393 votes (50.6%), Mafabi came second with 360 (46%) with Ekanya trailing with a paltry 17 votes (2.19%).

Nandala Mafabi, who was Muntu’s lead challenger, assured delegates that even if he has lost the election, this was not the end of the struggle.

“I am just 46 years old. I still have hope and I will keep on fighting for change in this country as an FDC member,” he assured the delegates.

He called upon the delegates to be proud of their Party at all times. “We should be FDC members during both day and night not like a few who are members during day and then at night they are for NRM,” he said.
