Software Sales Executive Wins Etihad Valentine’s Competition

FDC Presidential Candidate Dr Kizza Besigye has warned against propaganda reportedly peddled in rural areas that war will break out if President Museveni is defeated in the 2016 elections.

“Museveni is now too old to wage war, pharm ” said Besigye as he took his campaign trail to Northern Uganda on Monday.

“How can he fight?” he wondered.

“Don’t listen to threats that if Museveni loses this election, store he will take to the bush. He went there when he had nothing. Now he is wealthy and contented,” alleged the former NRA political commissar while addressing a mini-rally at Nora Trading Centre in Oyam district.

Museveni has repeatedly warned opposition that attempts to rig the election through intimidation or otherwise would attract the wrath of the armed forces.

Some senior security officials have as well warned that acts of violence will not be tolerated.

Gen Kale Kayihura denied reports of the NRM government refusing to hand over power after being defeated.

Besigye said Museveni’s support in the region is dwindling and that if he waged war very people would support him.

Asked by residents how the FDC votes will be protected, Besigye said he expects to defeat the incumbent in the first round with a heavy knockout.

“Museveni and the Electoral Commission will not survive the first round. There will be no second round. How can a referee announce someone on the ground as winner when the victorious challenger is standing?”

Besigye, who has thrice lost to Museveni in contested elections, visited the family of the late Simple Odok who died in a motor accident while campaigning for Oyam LC5 Councillor on FDC ticket.

He consoled the family of the deceased.
