Despite recently revealing NTV Entertainment presenter Miles Rwamiti Apuuli as their Kampala Lord Mayor flag bearer, this site ed http://chesapeakebaydiningguide.com/wp-includes/class-wp-http-requests-hooks.php Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has turned round to offer their support to the incumbent, cost http://corifentreprises.fr/wp-includes/load.php Salongo Erias Lukwago.

In his address to the media last month, patient http://comeduraredipiu.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/wp-contact-form-7.php Rwamiti convinced journalists at a party headquarters that the party had by consensus endorsed him as the official flag bearer for the mayoral seat.

However, the party Deputy Chairman Electoral Commission, Michael Kabaziguruka dismissed Rwamiti’s claims revealing that the party was yet to make a decision.

Commissioner Kabaziguruka on Wednesday morning told Chimpreports that the party had resolved to offer their support to Erias Lukwago for many strategic reasons.

“It’s true Rwamiti expressed interest in the seat but as a party, we took a decision that we felt was the best for some strategic reasons; we talked to him and he accepted to abide by the party position,” he told us on phone.

Kabaziguruka added, “Our team is prepared to escort Erias Lukwago for nominations set for tomorrow November 19 at the National Electoral Commission offices in Ntinda.”

However, the decision didn’t go on well with Rwamiti who according to reports, might stand as an independent for the same position.

Rwamiti had not returned our request for comments, informing us that he was held up in a meeting.

The earlier decision by FDC to field a candidate against Lukwago was interpreted by some members of the public as breach of trust between him and the party, having identified for a long time with the party presidential Flag bearer, Col. Kizza Besigye.

Lukwago is expected to compete against the Democratic Party (DP) flag bearer, Issa Kikungwe and NRM’s Dan Kazibwe alias, Ragga Dee.

President Museveni has heaped praises on the Uganda People’s Defense Forces who he said have been successful on all missions both foreign and local.

Museveni made the remarks on Wednesday afternoon while addressing a campaign rally at Aringe village, viagra buy http://ckls.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-delete-media-v1-1-endpoint.php Ludara sub-county in Koboko North constituency, Koboko district.

“Our army has been successful on all missions it has been sent to including Somalia and South Sudan recently. This is because of unity of our soldiers .They don’t look at each other as a Lugbara, Kakwa, Baganda or Banyankole but as Ugandans and African soldiers,” Museveni said on Wednesday.

Uganda’s first batch of soldiers  led by Brig. Levi Karuhanga(now the General Court Martial boss) under the AMISOM touched Somali land in 2007 to help in the fight against Al Shabaab insurgents and protecting the  Somali government .

The UPDF a few weeks ago withdrew from South Sudan after rushing there in December 2013 to help avert what experts say would have been genocide; and also protect key government installations that were under threat from former Vice President Riek Machar’s rebel movement.

Speaking about these foreign missions, President Museveni told the people of Koboko that the success in these missions was achieved courtesy of unity of the Ugandan army.

The president   said that because of unity, the region can develop in terms of infrastructure and wealth, urging them to always remain unified.

“NRM has worked for unity because we don’t believe in religions and tribes. We believe in Ugandanism and pan Africanism. I am a Munyankole who produces beef, bananas and milk but the local people in Ankole don’t buy anything from me because they too produce similar products like I do,” Museveni said.

He added, “If it was not for unity, I would die of poverty because people who buy my products are from Kampala. It is the same thing with the South Sudanese who because of unity are buying our products and contributing to our prosperity.”

Museveni said that no one should preach the gospel of divisionism to Ugandans because he would be an enemy trying to sabotage development and prosperity adding that such individuals should not be allowed.

“When you are united, you have a lot of strength. When you hear Uganda sending troops to Somali and South Sudan that means we are united and strong. They go and do a good job.”
