Why FDC suspended ‘stay home’ campaign

Must read

Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has suspended the ‘stay home’ campaign, carried out under the larger post election campaign of ‘Free my Vote’.

The stay home campaign was launched in solidarity with Dr Kizza Besigye, former party presidential flag bearer who has been incarcerated at his home by police for over a month.

“The stay home campaign under the Free my Vote will be temporarily withdrawn because of police withdrawal from Kizza Besigye’s home,” FDC spokesperson Ibrahim Semujju Nganda, said while addressing journalists at party headquarters, Najjanankumbi today.

However, Mr Semujju Nganda said should police siege Besigye’s home again, the campaign will resume.

He also stressed that the Free my Vote campaign has not yet been called off. “The fight and this campaign will continue until when we get our rights and freedom back,” Semujju Nganda said.

“The stay home campaign under free my vote will be temporarily withdraw because of police withdrawal from Besigye home.

“Some activities may stop while others will stand during this campaign. The fight and this campaign will continue until when we get our rights and freedoms back.

“#FreeMyVote campaign is a campaign to rescue the country, it will go on until we free our country.

“Our aspiration is not who takes power from Museveni, it’s to have better governance for the country.

“Police withdraw from Besigye home is because of public and international pressure I assure you.

Under the stay home campaign, supporters were asked to abandon work every Thursday and keep indoors in the sense and feeling of self imprisonment.
