Dr. Kizza Besigye


The former presidential candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye has urged Ugandans to join forces in the fight against President Museveni’s  for alleged militarized governance system.

“We have been living under the control of guns for so long, that’s why the struggle shouldn’t be trivialized to the struggle of Besigye. It’s for everyone ending rule by guns isn’t going to happen through a throw of a piece of paper in a box.”

Speaking earlier today, Besigye said the governance system in the country has not changed from the time when the country was taken over by foreigners noting that since 1962, no president has handed over power willingly indicating that people have no say on how and who governs them.

He said dictators and people who dominate others use four tools of fear, bribes, divide and rule as well as controlling information and propaganda. To his dismay, forces that try to fight against the current regime are being infiltrated and that’s how the government survives.

“We must reclaim the country. Once we have the power, we can organize how that power is managed and create rules. By the grace of God, we shall take action to regain our freedom and that is why we have been in the struggle for all these years to have an election. The reason I went to the bush was to have an election. If there is a need to struggle, we must figure out how to do so.” He said on NBS TV

Besigye said the act of security forces attacking parliament is high treason and the country has not dealt with it, “I gave up my life for an election” he added

“The artificial categorization of our politics is deliberate to distort and confuse us. It affects how we solve the problem we’re dealing with. I was a candidate in 2016 but still on bail. I was charged with treason but still insist I won the 2016 elections. Mr Museveni is illegally and illegitimately in the office of the president.” He reminisced

“We need to put it into context. We have an illegitimate president who changed the constitution, appointed a new Electoral Commission and attacked the parliament.”
