Former Vice President Prof Gilbert Bukenya has started mobilisation of his supporters for a planned massive rally at his hotel in Katomi off Entebbe Road, page http://curarlaimpotencia.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-get-media-endpoint.php Chimp Corps report.
During the function which is expected to pull at least 10, http://cdcsmiles.com/wp-includes/taxonomy.php 000 people, Bukenya will celebrate his return to the ruling NRM party.
Bukenya revealed to his fans at his home in Kakiri during the weekend that President Museveni, with who he has held a series of talks, will grace the occasion.
“I appeal to my supporters to embrace this homecoming ceremony planned for October 16,” said Bukenya.
Bukenya was a strong NRM supporter only to be dismissed as Vice President after being accused of conspiring with the Catholic Church and Buganda Kingdom to topple President Museveni.
In his discussion, Bukenya attacked Mbabazi, accusing him of being a traitor of President Museveni.
Bukenya said he was tormented, harassed and hounded out of NRM because of Mbabazi’s machinations.
“Mbabazi is a divisive character. He made sure my bond with the president was split. How could I back such a person to take over presidency?” wondered Bukenya.
He narrated how he was remanded at Luzira Prison on allegations of impropriety in the procurement of vehicles for the Commonwealth meeting in 2007, saying his troubles were engineered by Mbabazi.
On the collapse of the TDA arrangement to field a single candidate, Bukenya said the process was “disorganised and poisoned” by Mbabazi.
“TDA was a good initiative but Mbabazi messed it up,” he added.
Mbabazi’s aides have previously denied allegations of dividing the coalition.
However, FDC 2016 presidential election flag-bearer, Dr Kizza Besigye said they rejected Mbabazi due to lack of determination to push the cause of accountability and good governance in the country.
In a rabble-rousing article, Bukenya last year said he would never forget a scenario when Hon Mbabazi and her sister in law Hope Mwesigye “unfairly and without shame, accused me before the President with purely made up stories.”
Bukenya quoted Mbabazi and Mwesigye as saying that while on his Prosperity for All Tours in Kigezi in his capacity as Vice President, he only visited homesteads of Catholics and that he was sleeping at the Catholic Bishop’s residence for night political campaign meetings.
“I watched in utmost disbelief, Hon Hope Mwesigye and Hon Mbabazi both boldly tell blatant and cooked up lies to the President in my presence. Fortunately President Museveni listens and does so patiently without panic and emotion. Otherwise he would have sealed off my fate there and then as a treason suspect,” recounted Bukenya.
“I must confess though, that my disagreement with President Museveni and the entire NRM party of late has never been on the leadership style of the leader Museveni, but rather on his and the party’s failure to resist selfish schemers, who want to feel good victors all the time as others get trodden down. Treating all members of the party equally and giving them equal attention is the issue.”
Presidential aspirant Hon Amama Mbabazi has condemned what he described as “police brutality”, decease http://crmsoftwareblog.com/wp-includes/class-walker-page.php saying the violent arrest of FDC officials including a female activist along Masaka-Kampala road this past Saturday was shameful.
“I condemn the wilful police brutality meted out against the FDC Presidential aspirant Dr. Kizza Besigye and his colleagues of FDC this past Saturday on their way to a public meeting in Rukungiri, visit web http://cinselistekartirici.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/jetpack/class.jetpack-json-api-modules-get-endpoint.php ” said Mbabazi in a statement issued on Monday.
“There is no excuse whatsoever for this police violence,” he added.
FDC says their convoy was ambushed by police which threw tyre cutters on the road, destroying Hon Geoffrey Ekanya’s car and causing multiple car crashes.
Police denied the charge, saying FDC officials refused to stop at a roadblock put in place by the law enforcement body.
IGP Gen Kale Kayihura further said the FDC intended to carry out a campaign rally in Rukungiri before the nomination of Dr Kizza Besigye which he said was illegal.
However, police have since been accused of highhandedness and maltreating opposition leaders.
Mbabazi appealed to Government to “rein in the state police who have been brutalising the innocent public,” adding, “the shameful treatment of women by the police that same day is indefensible and should never happen again.”
Mbabazi was apparently referring to Zaina Fatuma who was captured on video undressing herself while resisting police arrest.
The former Prime Minister said it is the duty of the police to “protect and serve all Ugandans, as well as to ensure the equal application of the rule of law and the respect for the human rights of all citizens. Without this, there can be no true democracy.”
