Presidential candidate Lt. Gen. Henry Tumukunde has tipped the people of Acholi subregion in Northern Uganda to exercise wisely their constitutional mandate, while voting out the incumbent president Yoweri Museveni and his NRM government in the 2021 polls.
Tumukunde who was conducting his campaigns in Acholi sub- region on Monday this week, noted that although masses across the country have shown the desire for change, it is important to be careful who they vote for to avoid sliding the country back into anarchy.
“Although you need change more than anyone else in this coming general election, be careful to whom you want to vote to avoid taking you back in the same loss of 35 years with nothing achieved besides empty promises,” he said
Tumukunde made these remarks while addressing a gathering at Atyak sub-county in Amuru district.
He asked voters to consider what he called credible leaders like him for Uganda’s top office, because he is the only experienced candidate after president Museveni who can drive Uganda forward.
“No one can manage Mr. Museveni apart from me. These are wars of generals, don’t bring corporals to fight for you. Remember if you vote generally you will get general results but if you vote particularly you will get particular results,” he said.
“I worked here for four years as the Division commander 04, so I know your problems more than any other candidate,” he added.
He emphasized that his presidency will solve the problems like; finding solutions to end the internally displaced people, land issues in Acholi and child marriage.
