“For over 58 years, we have never seen peaceful hand over of power from past presidents to now Museveni,” Mugisha Muntu told supporters in Koboko municipality.
“We would have achieved peaceful handover if Museveni had not removed the term and age limits in 2004 and 2017,” added the Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) party candidate.
While combing West Nile during Christmas week, ANT supporters in Arua City danced to songs from local musicians as they welcomed the party presidential candidate to address a rally at Arua Primary school ground.
Muntu told his supporters on arrival that the country should be rooted in justice, a place without corruption and with fairness.
“We ask for your trust. We’ve the capability, skills, resilience to work day and night and create a society that God meant it to be.”
Muntu and Wadri in Koboko “These crooks are just greedy and short-sighted.They can’t value the 45 million people in Uganda. This country will be turned round.”
He went on: “Forget about what the crooks in NRM are telling you.They will be brought down on their knees,” he promised Arua voters.
In Koboko, Muntu was joined by Hon Kassiano E.Wadri and promised to elevate Arua airstrip to an International Airport, make West Nile a manufacturing hub to supply Eastern Congo and Southern S.Sudan and ensure that there is a stable power supply, Boost Tourism along R.Nile from Marchison Falls to Panjara (where Nile exits Uganda to S.Sudan) by constructing a motorable road either on the East or West Side of the Nile, support local local investors to build hotels along that stretch and build strong relationships with neighbouring countries.
“We shared our plans for Uganda, with our people in Omugo Subcounty, Terego and Oleba Subcounty, Maracha District.”
He said they are experiencing problems that are quite similar to the rest of the country, and “we actually told them the same thing that we have been telling you: Come 14th January, exercise your right and vote for change that puts the #PeopleFirst”.
“The exit of Museveni is the most critical thing now more than anything,” Muntu said after he was asked about the proposal by religious leaders to postpone elections.
