KAMPALA, UGANDA: The former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) president and four-time presidential runner-up, Rtd. Dr. Col. Kizza Besigye has advised the opposition against attacking each other but re-direct their focus on changing the regime.
While appearing on NBS Television on Monday morning, Besigye said that Ugandans are faced with a lot of challenges but the differences within the opposition has detracted them from offering the anticipated solution.
“Schools are reopening and parents do not have money to pay school fees, private schools are closing down, all this calls for our attention,” he said.
“We shall not get rid of Museveni if we are not focused and united,” Besigye said.
Besigye reminded the opposition that Ugandans are counting on them to provide a solution to those many problems.
He alleged that government institutions such as Parliament, the military, among others cannot liberate Ugandans because they are captives serving the regime interests.
In the run up to the 2021 general elections, Besigye told the opposition that reclaiming the lost rights should be the focus of Ugandans, instead of fighting for political positions.
The four-time presidential candidate has since indicated that they will be pursuing plan B which is however non-violent.
