The Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) presidential candidate Rtd. Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu, has advised Ugandans to stick to one option of elections as the only effective way of ousting the government of the National Resistance Movement (NRM), led by President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
Muntu noted that there are other means that can force Museveni out of power and end his 35 year rule, but said these would not be helpful.
“A chaotically destabilized country is not easy to reconstruct,” he said
“If you come out in big numbers and vote, for example out of 100 people, then 90 vote and 80 of these vote for change, there is no way they will cheat and it is exactly what we want you to do,” he said.
He made these remarks while addressing his supporters in Zigoti, Mityana district on Tuesday.
Muntu urged all change seeking Ugandans to traverse different places in villages, towns and urban centers and peacefully preach change so that the government is overthrown on January 14, 2021.
“Let’s work as hard as we can so that we change our country, specifically through elections, because other means are available but it is my prayer that we don’t dive into them,” he said
It should be noted that the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC)’s four times presidential candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye recently launched the so called Plan (B) of removing Museveni in case polls do not succeed.
Besigye reminded Ugandans that fighting is not only done through using guns but other means.
He told journalists recently that the change involves in Opposition leaders who are participating in the elections and this partly explains why they (opposition politicians) signed a power sharing agreement few weeks ago,
UPDF has since warned any Ugandan to desist from even thinking about causing chaos.
President Museveni, the Commander-in-Chief vowed to “Crush” any element in opposition who will try to “Destabilize” Uganda’s peace which he and the NRM government brought and has since maintained for the last 35 years,
Muntu on the other hand advised Ugandans to properly choose Museveni’s successor out of the ten because of what he called the temptations in State House,
“You need someone who is transparent and not moved by money because we are not sure whether one of the ten of us will not be like Museveni, Amin, Obote and others who were blinded by power and money,” he said
He thinks that the presidential seat is so tempting and needs somebody of high caliber who is not bothered with worldly riches,
“Anybody who is blinded by money or honor, cannot change this country and make it a better place for its citizens, it is impossible even when he or she is your real brother or sister,” he noted.
