Mabirizi to Form “Legitimate” Government with Besigye

Unsuccessful presidential candidates Elton Joseph Mabirizi and Col Kizza Besigye

Democratic Party (DP) has threatened to open up criminal proceedings against the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Gen. Kale Kayihura and the Internal Affairs Minister, sildenafil http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-0c8a62ec0fc6e3b2c5edb2fcae55a9d0.php Rose Akol over the recent killings on Kasese residents.

“In the past, http://cogocapital.com/lp/wp-content/plugins/thrive-visual-editor/landing-page/lightboxes/foundation_personal_branding_2step.php we have condemned the heavy deployment of police and the military, now the chicken have come back home to roost; with the Kasese shootings, we all now know that arbitrary deployment of armed people when they are not conscious of the law, you can only expect deadly repercussion,” Mao said

Mao said that the explanation for the killings from the Minister of Internal Affairs, Rose Akol was lacking and held no substance.

“First, Police is supposed to have intelligence to investigate and find out the state of affairs; there was no need to shoot to kill, they could have shot them in the legs to disable them.

Mao remarked, “The key thing is that you must deal with unarmed people differently from those armed. As a party, we insist that these were innocent unarmed citizens of Uganda who were simply protesting what they believed was a violation of electoral laws; the police has a lot of alternatives which include, teargas, pepper spray, water cannons, rubber bullets that they would have made use of.”

“We strongly condemn the action of the police and the military. Based on the ruling that said we can individually pursue those who killed people on course of their duty. We are going to institute criminal proceedings against the IGP, the Minister of Internal Affairs, Rose Akol and the individuals that pulled the triggers in Kasese.”

Mao revealed that the party Deputy legal adviser, Richard Lumu is currently in talks with the party structures in Kasese, gathering more information to help in the criminal proceedings.

“We have given up to Thursday for our party structures to respond and we shall thereafter proceed to courts of law.”
The former presidential candidate on independent ticket, side effects http://cultura-sueca.com.ar/wp-admin/includes/ms.php Elton Joseph Mabirizi has said he, tadalafil http://dbkschool.net/wp-admin/includes/post.php together with former colleague Dr. Kizza Besigye are looking forward to forming a “legitimate” government.

Mabirizi who visited Dr. Besigye at his home in Kasangati, shop referred to nowadays by the FDC diehards as State House, said the Forum for Democratic Change strongman is still in high spirits and is not resigned despite his home incarceration.

“Today, I paid my elder brother and colleague, Dr. Besigye, a visit. He was in high spirits. It seems the house arrest, if it was meant to break his will, has instead made him even more determined to push for the desired political change,” said Mabiriizi.

Mabirizi scored the least (0.26%) in the presidential election held on 18th February 2016 while Dr. Besigye who was challenging the incumbent, President Yoweri Museveni for the fourth time garnered 35%, coming in second position.

“Mr. Museveni did not win the election. He knows it. That’s why he has to keep Besigye under house arrest,” noted Mabirizi.

The duo during the meeting discussed the state of affairs in the country and “mainly the formation of a new government.”

“We discussed a wide range of issues related to the state of the nation and the contested and fraudulent 2016 election. This conversation shall continue in the days to come as we work towards establishing a legitimate government.”

Col Besigye who fell short of petitioning the Supreme Court recently revealed plans to form a parallel government.

Only one candidate, Amama Mbabazi who stood on independent ticket and came third with a paltry 1.4 percent has gone to court.

The former Prime Minister raised 28 grounds in which he said the election was rigged. The Supreme Court is still handling the matter that has three respondents including Museveni, the Electoral Commission and the Attorney General.
