“On top of that, why is government insisting on using a system that has severally been challenged as flawed? We know that a number of LC members during validation were not locals, and also numerous refuges have been issued with cards.

“Despite Museveni’s nomination by his party as the sole candidate, his participation in the presidential race is illegal since his age will have exceeded the constitutional 75 in the next term; beyond which it unlawful to be president of the Republic of Uganda.

“We shall hold NRM to account so as to follow the constitution, it is just a party and its owners are fresh and blood like us.”
