Renewed Uganda presidential candidate Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde has urged all those in the struggle for a new country not to give up.
The former security minister was Monday speaking at the burial of fellow candidate Bobi Wine’s bodyguard Frank Ssentenza.
Tumukunde first held rallies in Lyantonde district and later headed to Masaka for the burial of the late Frank Senteza Kalibala who was knocked and ran over by a speeding military patrol car at Busega round about.
“May your soul rest in eternal peace,” Tumukunde consoled the National Unity Platform presidential candidate at Villa Road, Kalungu district, the ancestral home of the late Frank.
“Let us not give up on the struggle for a Renewed Uganda. Please let us vote and protect our vote,” Tumukunde said after the burial.
The Renewed Uganda pressure group presidential flag bearer Gen. Henry Tumukunde was also quoted by media saying 2021 elections will not be free and fair given the oppression they are enduring during the on-going campaigns.
He said the regime is using the pandemic to rig the elections as it was supposed to be the case.
He thus doubts if the opposition have a chance to win an election in these circumstances.
“It is laughable to talk about free and fair elections. President Museveni has finished all districts. He is left with three or four. When he is done, that is when they think of COVID19. My view is that this is rigging,” he is quoted as saying by Matooke Republic.
