Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) is set to hold a ‘peaceful demonstration’ on May 5, challenging the election of Yoweri Museveni as President.
Addressing journalists this morning FDC Deputy Secretary General Harold Kaija said that the procession, to be held a week to the swearing-in of Mr Museveni on May 12, will be peaceful and in compliance with the law. He added that the procession will be from FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi to Nakivubo Blue Primary School in Kampala, at that police will be allowed to determine the routes and venues to be used by the demonstrators if there is a disagreement with the pre-determined ones.
The FDC, which has adopted ‘defiance’ as its strategy to counter the outcomes of the 2016 presidential elections, maintains that its flag bearer Dr Kizza Besigye won the election with 54 percent and the party is demanding an independent audit of the election results.
Meanwhile, by press time, the EagleOnline was unable to get comment from police as spokesperson Fred Enanga did not pickup our repeated calls.
