Kitgum District Member of Parliament Hon Beatrice Anywar better known as Mama Mabira this afternoon spoke fervently about her decision to break her party ranks to support NRM dissident   Hon Amama Mbabazi in the 2016 Presidential Elections.

The opposition Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] strongwoman said she was no less a party member, more about http://cherrylanefarms.com/wp-admin/includes/update-core.php but one who got tired of stagnation.

“I am still a strong FDC member, try but I want to Go Forward, viagra approved ” she said to loud cheering at Mbabazi’s inaugural campaign rally at Nakivubo stadium.

The downtown 15000 sitter was filled to brim, by the former Prime Minister after he was successfully nominated by the national electoral Commission at Namboole stadium.

Hon. Anywar who made her name when she led a campaign against the sale of the country’s biggest natural forest Mabira, told the crowds that like she emerged triumphant in the campaign, she would make ensure that her candidate makes it to State House next year.

“We cannot remain in one place forever. 30 years were have been rotating without moving. We realize that time has come for us to move from this point to the next.”

Anywar noted her decision to go against her party’s candidate was informed by the strongly felt need for a ‘hybrid leader’ – one who would unite the entire opposition against the ruling government.

“Mbabazi has demonstrated that he can do that. This battle we started today doesn’t end here at Nakivubo. We’ll fight on until we are in State House,” she added, her voice rising.
