himself. Ugandans voted him. He won elections and was sworn in,” she added.
Ms. Turinawe stressed that she and other colleagues cannot take any orders from Gen. Muntu and are only waiting to hear from Besigye when he is released.
“Yes, he is in prison but he will be out soonest. He is our president until he guides us otherwise. The struggle to claim our victory is on! Watch the space.”
Yesterday after the appointment, Muntu warned this group, stressing that the party must accept the current circumstances and move on.
