After the Bugiri town incident where he was sprayed with a poisonous chemical, the Villager is still in pain but up in spirit and has to deliver a message of change to his people.
On his way to Kumi and Soroti towns Tuesday, Patrick Amuriat made a stopover at Kachumbala SC Bukedia district.
He addressed a mini rally at Kajamaka Primary School, Mukongolo Sub-county, in Kumi District.
Together with the Secretary General and Party Chairman, Amuriat Oboi addressed the people of Asuret sub country at Asuret playground in Soroti district.
In the discussion, they put across a number of things that need to be done while building a new Uganda.
He accused President Museveni of hiring foreigners to exert torture on Ugandans.
“President Museveni hired people to come and torture us Ugandans,” Amuriat said.
“They have hired foreigners to kill Ugandans,” he alleged before being pepper sprayed and later being hospitalised at First Line Medical Centre in Bugiri Town, on Monday.
FDC officials and eye witnesses said Eastern Regional Field Force Unit [FFU] police commander Abraham Asiimwe was responsible for the pepper spraying incident.
Asiimwe has reportedly been trailing Amuriat on his campaign trail in Eastern Uganda including in districts of Sironko, Bulambuli and Budadiri prompting FDC national chairperson and Amuriat’s campaign manager Wasswa Birigwa to state:
“If anything happens to our candidate, Asiimwe will personally be held responsible.”
In Kumi, Amuriat stated that Museveni’s government would soon collapse.
“The regime is in panic mode but I want to tell Museveni that change is inevitably coming,” Amuriat added.
He concluded by asking the people of Kumi to “Vote for change in big numbers” while also emphasizing that, “We shall not fear and we shall not give up on this struggle.”
