The party Deputy Spokesperson, Paul Mwiru told reporters at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi that better strategies have been put in place to ensure that their victory is not snatched.

“All indicators in Kyadondo show that our candidate Apollo Kantinti is winning as expected,” he said.

Kyadondo constituency, he said, neighbors by places Nansana, Kira, Mukono and Kawempe which have many people that are actually not area voters.

Mwiru said that the party and Kantinti campaign team took a strategy to engage the actual voters because it is the vote that matters and not crowds.

“We tasked them to have a multiplier effect to influence other voters; we also had an option of carrying our supporters from different parts of the country but because this election is very strategic we wanted to measure our strength and have come to a conclusion that we are winning,” Mwiru noted.

Asked whether the party will run to Court in case they lose, Mwiru response’s wadt, “We see ourselves winning and don’t see ourselves going back to Court unless we have been dragged to Court again,”

Mwiru told reporters that they have enlisted support from party members from different parts of the country to join in the race and guard against rigging in Kyadondo.

“We have our tactical base with our tally center, we shall know the results; they will come in at our tally center as well as at EC but I am very sure we shall know the results earlier than EC and we shall move to the tally center to have our candidate declared on 29th,” he said.

“We shall emerge winners because nobody will rig our vote, we have prepared for this exercise for more than a month and we shall not fail to manage it for one day.”
