As he traverses the country campaigning, Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) party candidate Mugisha Muntu takes every opportunity to not only ask for his vote for President, but for ANT candidates in every area where he goes.
“You will recall that Gen Museveni was able to manipulate the parliament and change the constitution to suit him because he had a majority in Parliament,” he said.
“We need to have a new team at all levels for us to work effectively as a government.”
Muntu was campaigning in Kampala with ANT candidates including Ronald Mukasa, Aisha Nabasirye Gita, Yakubu Mayanja Musaazi, Dr Ali Kangume and many others.
Muntu campaigningOn arrival in Kiboga on his way to the campaign meeting venue, Muntu had a brief chat with some young men at their boda boda stop.
He asked them to trust Alliance for National Transformation-Uganda and put them in power to bring qualitative change to the country and put the country back on track.
He told them not to fear to go and vote because they think that Gen Museveni will steal their votes anyway, because that’s what he wants people to think.
“If every voter turns up to vote, and every party has agents on ground at every polling station, then we shall be able to protect the vote.”
He was able to speak to people in Kikooba Parish, Lwamata Subcounty, and Bukomero Subcountry in Kiboga.
He asked them to vote for him not because they love him but because they trust him and that he has the capability to get the country back on track.
“Vote for interests, not likes, someone who will take care of your interests, but not because you like them.”
Muntu and his team were able to make it through several unnecessary Police and Army stops to the Campaign Meeting in Kyankwanzi district.
The regime continues to deploy the security forces excessively to try and interfere with campaign programs which were agreed upon with the Electoral Commission, he said.
“We challenged our people in Kyankwanzi not to say “The NRM will steal our votes” but instead say “The NRM will try to steal our votes but we shall not allow that to happen”.
“We need all the registered voters to show up on 14th January 2021 and vote for change, and to have people of integrity on ground, who can’t be swayed by some shillings, or a bar of soap to monitor the process, and make it hard for any election fraud to take place.Let us not feel overwhelmed by the NRM who have access to state resources, as long as we believe in the cause, we shall overcome.”
Muntu said this time round the battleground is the ballot and that all should turn up on 14th January 2021 and vote for #ChangeYouCanTrust.
While campaigning at the shores of L. Kyoga, a few of the locals in Wanseko Trading Centre, Buliisa District took them around to show them the damage done by the rising water levels.
The theory is that the rise was due to higher than normal release of water at the dam in Jinja, Muntu said.
“As the ANT government, we would first of all carry out an extensive investigation to verify whether it is true or not. If it is true, then the rise should have been anticipated, and government should have acted in good time and should take responsibility.”
“We would now plan for compensation for those who lost property, but also clean up the areas that have been impacted, and plan for the medium and long term.”
He said if it was actually due to natural causes, the government would simply be coming in with a disaster response action.
