Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has today officially launched campaigns for the party flag bearer ahead of the 2016 presidential elections.

At the event, sildenafil http://cienciaaldia.com/wp-includes/query.php both candidates Gen Mugisha Muntu [Party President] and his predecessor Gen Mugisha Muntu promised to hold the party united despite the anticipation that divisionism might arise after the exercise.

Speaking to their supporters at the party headquarters in Najjanankumbi, Col Kizza Besigye asked the public not to worry about the possibility of the party being torn down the middle by the looming competition between him and the party president Gen. Mugisha Muntu.

“Gen. Muntu has been my colleague for more than 30 years and I have great respect for him as a leader. This is our third time that we are contesting against each other and the entire last three times, the party has remained together still pursuing a common cause,” Besigye said.

Besigye shakes hands with Muntu

“We shall support any person that emerges winner after this exercise for the good of the party as we continue the quest for democratic governance, which we want to champion event when we take over power.”

On his part, Gen Muntu said, “All the three times I lost to Dr Besigye, I conceded defeated and decided to work under him; even this time round we shall remain working together for the good of the party.”

Besigye also used the event to dismiss conclusions that his decision to take on President Yoweri Museveni for the 4th time was a sign of greed for power, revealing that in a situation where elections are not free and fair, the question of losing three times doesn’t arise at all.

He further rubbished allegations that he had been inconsistent with his earlier promise that he would not challenge Museveni in any other election.

“I challenge any person at all to show any evidence that I have ever said I will not contest in an election in Uganda; I have only said I won’t contest without electoral reforms in place and I won’t change on this.”
