Battle lines have been drawn in the south western district of Rukungiri where opposition Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] are slated to hold their inaugural grassroots rally since the July consultative meetings.

The rallies which will be held all around the country at regional level were announced by the party’s NEC that convened on Wednesday to approve a winning strategy for the 2016 general elections.

According to information from the area however, the Rukungiri District Police Commander ASP Wotwaali has refused to grant permission to the rally.

Last evening he reportedly announced on Radio Rukungiri informing people that the rally scheduled for Saturday October 10th will not take place. The DPC informed the public not to turn up and warned that whoever turns up would do it at their own risk.

Rukungiri is also the home district for the FDC party flag bearer in next year’s presidential elections Col Kizza Besigye.

The party however, remains adamant and has vowed to proceed with the rally regardless of the thoughts of the Police.

FDC’s chief mobilizer Mrs Ingrid Turinawe revealed last evening that the party had informed police about the meeting.

The activity she said is aimed at identifying lower level candidates, rolling out party primary elections, recruitment and sale of party cards and noted that it would go on as planned.

“FDC is a legally registered party. We are mandated to mobilize, recruit and associate with our members from Monday to Sunday and January to December,” she said.

“The public is here by informed to attend in big numbers. Whoever is planning to disrupt this event, stand warned. We meet,” she warned.
