Confine d behind the walls of his own house by police, viagra 60mg http://clasharama.com/wp-includes/nav-menu-template.php opposition Forum for Democratic Change candidate in the last elections Col Dr Kizza Besigye has rallied his supporters to prepare for continued pressure on the current NRM government, buy information pills http://cdkstone.com.au/wp-content/flywheel-automated-migration/bv_security.php which he claims robbed his victory.

Col Besigye believes there is still chance for regime change this year and so do many of his supporters. He said yesterday, “We may have to make some sacrifices and should be prepared to do so.”

In a lengthy statement last night, Col Besigye stressed he was confident that he won the February 18th Presidential Election despite the ruling party’s efforts to rig and manipulate the results.

He says that government’s reaction to the red flag raised by his supporters over the open rigging was his incarceration, the raiding of his party offices and the arrest of party officials, agents and supporters.

“From 19th February (the day before the announcement of final results by EC) up to now, I’ve been under police detention- either in police cells or at my Kasangati home. Access to our Party leaders and lawyers was very limited,” he said.

It is this Police/Military operation according to Besigye that crippled his effort of gathering evidence and evaluating it for purposes of preparing an election petition as provided for in the Constitution.

He noted, “It may be easy to fake results, but it’s not easy to fake people’s response. There was absolutely no celebration on the announcement of the fraudulent declaration of Mr Museveni as a winner of 2016 elections. Even NRM members knew that the EC announcement was not true!”

At the start of this week after Besigye failed to challenge the election results in court, the FDC president Gen Mugisha Muntu demanded for an Independent Audit of the 2016 presidential election.

Besigye in his statement stressed that this was the only way through which the opposition and government would politically agree on a process of election audit that’s not presently provided for in the law, “since the one provided was overthrown.”

“All candidates would commit themselves to respect the outcome of the audit. This can be conclusively done before the expiry of the current term of Government.”

Short of the Besigye vowed, “We’ll have to proceed and exercise the mandate that was clearly given to us by the people of Uganda. We cannot let down the millions of people who supported our campaign, braved the harassment and intimidation, persevered in long queues without voting materials etc, and eventually delivered the victory.”

He added, “We shall form government as mandated by our people- the Peoples’ Government. This is the critical moment for our political defiance campaign.

Besigye went on to call upon all peace-loving Ugandans, East Africans, Africans and members of the International Community to play a role in working towards the Independent Audit.

“I ask all our people to remain strong and vigilant, especially, members of Power 10. We shall call for non-violent actions that disempower the regime seeking to impose itself on our country.”
