The party believes was a lethal weapon that they intend to keep deploying against President Yoweri Museveni’s party in the future.
Speaking to press this morning, FDC spokesperson Mr John Kikonyogo said the election had brought to light the strength of togetherness amongst opposition parties in the country.
He said the victory was not Nabukenya’s but entirely against the regime.
FDC championed an opposition united front against NRM’s Nalwanga, by restricting their own Gwokyalya Ziada who had come third in the 2011 poll from standing again.
Nabukenya’s campaigns were graced by all major opposition leaders and stalwarts, and got the biggest push from NRM’s former Vice President Prof Gilbert Bukenya.
“What came out clearly was that when there is a common problem, divisionism is out of place. We hope this lesson will sink into other fellow opposition leaders to understand that at times individual interests are a weakness.”
Kikonyogo also attributed the opposition’s triumph to president Museveni whom he said was punished by the people of Luweero for his numerous unfulfilled promises.
During the campaign, the President was bombarded with complaints about his previous pledges to the extent that he told them off he was not Jesus to perform miracles.
Kikonyogo remarked: “At one time we saw the district chairman Hajji Abudu Nadduli calling upon the president to help them thatch their headquarters. The people of Luweero, which used to be one of the wealthiest districts back then, realized that after 28 years, if the district could not raise Shs20m for its headquarters’ roof, something was wrong with the NRM leadership,” he added.
