He urged supporters not to concede fast in their push for regime change, adding that all signals show that change is coming.

“Remain focused, don’t get tired. The struggle is coming to an end. Every Ugandan loves to see change of power and I want to tell you that change starts with you; you must start now by never again voting for NRM Candidates,” Dr. Besigye said.

Besigye said at the rally that despite all the rigging, “President Yoweri Museveni knows even now that he lost the 2016 presidential polls.”

“I have all that’s needed to prove that I won the election, and I have all what it takes to reclaim my seat as President,” he added Besigye, adding that the region figured this and decided to lock him up to stop him from challenging the election results.

Besigye also took time to comment on the famine that hit the area, claiming that the people in power chose abandon the starving people.

Recently, the Country’s Prime Minister Rukahana Rugunda while appearing in Parliament revealed that at least one million Ugandans were faced with starvation if rains do not stabilize.

His statement prompted debate in the house with some legislators asking Government to declare a state of emergency.

But President Yoweri Museveni while commenting on the matter recently, said he didn’t support the idea of handing out relief food to hunger stricken areas, saying that this discourages hard work.
