FDC National Chairperson Amb. Wasswa Birigwa has revealed that his party has agreed with the National Unity Platform (NUP) on a plan that might pave the way for President Yoweri Museveni’s exit.
While publicly, for a long time the two parties were deemed antagonistic, Biriggwa while told residents of Bukuya Town Council in Kassanda District yesterday that they had in fact come up with a plan to work together toward ousting the current regime in next year’s election.
“We are all trying to deny him (Museveni) that percentage that would enable him to sail through. Thereafter we shall head into the second round and in case Bobi Wine beats Amuriat we shall all back him. And if Amuriat emerges top, vice versa,” Birigwa revealed.
“You must have heard that we sat with Hon. Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu, agreed and even signed a pact to the effect that we shall unite whether we win or lose. We shall also form a unitary government as a united force.”
Birigwa as such, urged both sides not to rip themselves apart, ahead of the January 14, 2021 Presidential Elections arguing that all sides must ensure that they deny the incumbent president the 50% threshold.
His remarks were later re-echoed by the Party’s National Field Coordinator Roland Kaginda Mugume while speaking at Myanzi trading center.
“If you are opposition and support whoever, we all want President Museveni to go. Our only problem is this man who has spent 35 years in office. We shall sort our differences after removing him,” Kaginda said.
