In a strange turn of events, tadalafil http://cremeriavienna.it/wp-admin/includes/revision.php Hon Amama Mbabazi’s Go Forward camp has started probing the ‘real’ faces behind the purported National Resistance Movement youths who appeared at their rallies in Ntungamo district on Sunday evening; sparking a bloody brawl in which several people were injured.

Mbabazi’s camp, about it http://corepr.pl/wp-includes/class-wp-customize-widgets.php says it now has a few reasons to believe that the dozens of youths donning yellow t-shirts who attempted to attack the former Prime Minister’s convoy did not actually come from the ruling NRM but from an opposition camp.

Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura yesterday rushed to the district to make an assessment of the situation, clinic vowing to arrest the people behind the attack.

One of Mbabazi’s senior strategists, Hon Matthias Mpuuga now believes that the provocative youths were from Col Dr Kiiza Besigye’s Forum for Democratic Change.

The Masaka Municipality Member of Parliament stated yesterday that he would need strong answers from the FDC camp to be convinced otherwise.

“I need assurance from FDC colleagues that the goons that tried to interrupt (our) rally were not FDC,” he said.  “I need assurance preferably from (Hon Roland) Kaginda –the MP Rukungiri Municipality — and comrade Ingrid Turinawe (the FDC Chief Mobilizer). If it turns out to be true, then…God forbid!!!”

Mpuuga insinuated that the behavior of the youths in yellow T-shirts in Ntungamo did not resemble that of the NRM youths, reportedly commanded by Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde, which have attacked them in other rallies in Mukono, Lwengo and other areas.

He noted the yellow T-shirt donning youths in Ntungamo appeared to be masquerading because their sloganeering sounded like that of the FDC’s.

The legislator, who this year crossed from Dr Besigye’s camp to back Hon Amama Mbabazi, added that once his fears are vindicated, the Go Forward would have to deal with the matter much more decisively.

“We all know what happened in Ntungamo, and the worst is yet to come! Friendly fire kills; it’s the basis of my inquest,” he retorted.

Hon Mpuuga, a Democratic Party member has for years been one of Col Kizza Besigye’s right hand men. The 40 year old is mostly remembered for coordinating the walk-to-work protests after the 2011 elections which drew a lot of local and international attention.

Mid this year however, after the collapse of the opposition alliance TDA, Mpuuga decided to cross to Hon Amama Mbabazi who he described as a key player in the new face of the struggle,

“The entry of JPAM [John Patrick Amama Mbabazi] in the struggle is part of the additional efforts to propel the struggle to the next level. I don’t find a contradiction when the struggle gets a new face and I choose to work with one of the key players without any fear,” Mpuuga recently told The Observer.

Rukungiri is the home district of Col Kizza Besigye. The rally was described as largely unsuccessfully owing to the small number of people that showed up at the rally. Mpuuga stated however the small crowds at the rally were not a big concern to them.

That Jpam got fewer people in Rukungiri than any other place so far, for me is not bad at all, everyone must have a place called home in politics
