Serving UPDF General and former spymaster Gen David Sejusa has praised what he described as “real democracy” in the FDC party, story http://cyclopeperu.com/wp-admin/includes/ms-deprecated.php Chimp Corps report.

The former coordinator of intelligence organs said the strong systems in FDC have on several occasions deliver free and fair elections which he said “should inspire everybody.”

He further revealed that “running a party in a dictatorship isn’t easy. The main role of a dictator is to divide parties, infiltrate them as well as buy off their structures.”

Sejusa made the remarks on Wednesday at Mandela National Stadium where he was attending the FDC Delegates Conference.

FDC strongman Dr Kizza Besigye defeated Mugisha Muntu in the 2016 party flag-bearer elections.

Muntu would later hug Besigye before conceding defeat and promising to throw his weight behind the representative of the party in the next elections.

“Seeing these parties with such a mammoth gathering amid a standing terror machinery is indeed a call to appreciate and I give them a thumbs-up for this achievement,” said Sejusa.

He vowed to continue working with “such organized political parties to build a collective momentum that will realize genuine change in the country.”

The army officer who fought in the NRA bush war with President Museveni, Muntu and Besigye, said, “FDC has demonstrated that democracy is indeed achievable; unlike with NRM whose delegates’ conference would be full of security operatives and government officials; this is people organized.”

During the conference, Besigye said Sejusa in his capacity as intelligence coordinator knew that the former won the previous elections only to be rigged out at the last minute.

On a few hitches in FDC’s accreditation process, Sejusa said, “it’s always better to negotiate until you reach an agreement other than using force. The decision to do another roll call to weed out non-delegates was fair since in every organization, it is better for only members who qualify to vote.”

“This was an act of democracy since democracy means; accountability, predictability and fair play and whatever they do in furthering this is fine.”
