“We noticed we were fighting personal wars between Mbabazi and President Museveni as the former was serving his own interests, contrary to what he always told us and the public at large. We reflected on it and realized it was a bad scheme we could not continue with.”

According to the head of the group, they discovered that the Mbabazi camp was focused on fronting hate and tribal campaign messages on top of putting the family first and meddling into the pressure group’s affairs and day today running of the affairs which he said was unacceptable.

Mr Sekitooleko was recently dismissed from Mbabazi’s Go Forward Secretariat, which accused him of releasing vital information to the ruling party, in exchange for money.

The Secretariat also alleged that Sekitooleko was recruiting their members to join Museveni’s camp. He however dismissed these charges as false.

“We were not sacked as they claim because we were the ones who invited delegates who attended the launch of the nomination for Mbabazi recently. We however realized that he was serving foreign interests, which was unpatriotic of him.”

Disrupt Elections

The group who bragged of being the architects of the Go Forward structure right from the village level told journalists that contrary to the core objectives of the pressure group, there is an orchestrated scheme to disrupt elections by using riots, burning   the city and demonstrations in a bid to attain power violently.

“We had trained over 40,000 vigilantes from Bugisu, Busoga and Teso regions ready to cause havoc  during elections that we started recruiting  2 years ago preparing for 2016.We realized it was not a good scheme as far as peace is concerned in the country, ”said the Teso region Go Forward  team leader Charles Ojok.

Team Composition

According to Tumwine, the Go Forward structure across the country has members right from national level in all regions of the country with one national coordinator at the national secretariat.

“We had regional and assistant regional coordinators in the East, North, Central,and West ,Sub regional coordinators .There are coordinators at district, constituency, sub-county ,parish and village levels all over the country,” he said .

He noted that in a bid to avoid detection and being penetrated, they had to create 3 parallel coordinators at each level so that if one is swept away by  government operatives, the others ones remain intact.

He said the structure had leaders for all groups of people including youths, veterans, women, district leaders, faith-based leaders and people with disabilities.

Declare Campaign Against Mbabazi

The group said they know all the ins and outs and are ready to fight to see they are dismantled.

“We built the structures and now we are to dismantle them. We have now closed the Go Forward secretariat at Nakasero which caused panic in the camp forcing Mbabazi to go abroad due to the pressure. As time goes on, you will find many of us breaking the structures we built all over the country,”Tumwine told journalists.

The group vowed to demolish Mbabazi's structures

The president while addressing thousands of supporters at Atoroma primary school grounds in Katakwi district on Tuesday said the people of the area and entire whole Teso region need easy means of transport through Lake Bisina to the neighbouring districts of Karamoja and Lango.

Museveni, this http://deborahmillercounselor.com/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-comments-list-table.php who is the National Resistance Movement presidential candidate, said flooding during rainy season is affecting some roads and the government is working on immediate measures to solve the problem.

“The plan to bring the ferry here to Lake Bisina has been there but I understand it is not yet fully implemented. The ferry should be there to help the people’s movement and even goods,” said Museveni.

On the roads, president Museveni said Katakwi is already with a motor road grader and other road construction equipment will be provided to the district to quicken the repair and building of new roads.

“The grader is already here at the district. The government procured graders for each district in the country from China. Very soon we are bringing more and many road working equipment from Japan which I recently visited,” Museveni told the people of Katakwi.

The government has heavily prioritized the construction and maintenance of roads and each district is expected to receive four road work machinery.

“All districts are going to be getting their own sets of four road building materials. The wheel loader, the soil compacter, the water vehicle and two tipper lorries are on their way anytime,” he added.

On education, president Museveni who introduced the free primary and secondary education known as Universal Primary Education and Universal Secondary Education respectively said 51 of the 53 parishes in Katakwi district have government primary schools.

The NRM candidate further revealed that government will soon take over the responsibility of providing scholastic materials to pupils.

“The government is going to start giving all children books, pens and mathematical sets for geometry. The parents will only remain with two duties which is the school uniform and providing lunch to the children.”
