The former powerful FDC Security Secretary, approved generic http://clark-illustration.com/wp-includes/class-wp-post-type.php Salim Angoliga will today Friday denounce Dr Kizza Besigye’s 2016 presidential candidature, generic http://crunchydomesticgoddess.com/wp-admin/includes/nav-menu.php Chimp Corps report.

Angoliga has been a trusted and loyal confidant of Dr Besigye for almost the last 8 years.

Officials in FDC say Angoliga designed security protocols for Dr Besigye and senior party members during sensitive and turbulent moments including city demonstrations.

He would as well liaise with authorities to rescue FDC supporters illegally kept in detention centres.

When Dr Besigye fell sick during a police siege at his Kasangati residence last year, viagra http://danielpyne.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/sync/class.jetpack-sync-module-plugins.php it was Angoliga who came in and drove him out to receive medication.

Despite working closely with Besigye for a long time, Angoliga will at a press conference in Kampala today say he is opposed to the FDC ironman’s candidature.

“Angoliga will today call a spade a spade. He has been frustrated with Dr Besigye’s personalization of opposition politics,” said a highly placed FDC source who spoke on condition of anonymity so as to speak freely.

It remains unclear if Angoliga’s possible defection to NRM will weaken FDC but the latest development underscores the growing internal discontentment towards Besigye’s refusal to give way for another opposition figure to run against President Museveni.

A group of top FDC leaders including Amanya Mushega, Mugisha Muntu and Beatrice Anywar have been uncomfortable with Besigye’s failure to pave way for others thus subjecting the party’s democratic credentials to harsh criticism.

Wrangle

However, it should be recalled that Angoliga recently clashed with Besigye over a Shs 5m debt.

Angoliga secured Shs 5m from Besigye to pay off a loan from a moneylender in Kampala.

Besigye kept Angoliga’s Harrier brand car as security for the Shs 5m credit but the vehicle was stolen from the former FDC president’s fuel station in Nsambya, a Kampala suburb.

Angoliga asked Besigye to pay for the lost car, creating a rift between the top FDC leaders.

“Now who will pay for my car? If I give you my car as security and it gets lost, what happens? Do I incur a loss? No, I want my car,” Angoliga told this website almost a fortnight ago.

Nevertheless, the timing of today’s planned presser will as well raise queries on Besigye’s ability to keep the party’s top leadership coherent ahead of the 2016 elections.

An insider told ChimpReports on Friday that “many more FDC leaders are going to abandon Besigye. MPs have been intimidated into silence but some are determined to move on without FDC. Besigye’s return overshadowed Muntu whom we had decided to rally behind for president.”

Besigye has consistently maintained that fighting the sitting government is not a picnic but a “protracted struggle” that might last decades.
