Defiant opposition strongman Dr Kizza Besigye has insisted on forming a parallel government on the same day of president Museveni’s swearing-in ceremony.

“On the 12/05/2016, dosage http://centrodelasartesslp.gob.mx/home/wp-includes/random_compat/random_bytes_com_dotnet.php we shall establish leadership of our country as mandated- a transitional government of national unity,” said Dr Besigye in a statement issued Tuesday.

He said the opposition parallel leadership will “restore to the people of Uganda, the control of our national resources and our national institutions,” adding, “The people of Uganda are entitled to share our national resources equitably and to enjoy equal opportunities.”

The launch of the People’s Government will take place in the Capital City of Kampala, led by the Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, according to Dr Besigye.

It remains unclear how Besigye’s new government will be inaugurated considering that his residence and that of Lukwago remain under a police cordon.

Police maintain Besigye and his colleagues are hell-bent on cultivating ground for destabilisation activities.

The army and police have since last week been deploying heavily in the capital city to secure the inauguration ceremony and African Heads of State expected to grace the occasion.

The Supreme Court qualified Museveni’s election, throwing out presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi’s petition challenging the poll outcome.

But Dr Besigye insists he obtained 52 percent of the total vote count.

“Since it’s clear that the path to amicably and conclusively establish the outcome of the 2016 elections has been ignored, we have no choice but to do what the people of Uganda mandated us to do,” charged Besigye.

Police boss Gen Kale Kayihura has since warned of consequences should opposition supporters take to the streets as encouraged by Dr Besigye.

“We have got information that in the name of demonstrating, FDC have planned to block Entebbe road which we can’t accept because it is an international highway,” said Kayihura.

“Who is Dr Besigye to destabilize the peace of the city and country at large? We can’t allow such a thing to happen because the peace and stability of the country is for us all,” warned Kayihura.
