FDC flagbearer Amuriat warns Museveni not to provoke Ugandans into war

The forum for democratic change party presidential flag bearer Patrick Oboi Amuriat has warned President Yoweri Museveni and security forces not to provoke the country into war.

Amuriat told supporters in Teso sub-region earlier today that the brutality meted out to him and other opposition candidates and their supporters was provoking the population to rise up and forcefully demand change.

Patrick Oboi Amuriat spent the day in Teso sub-region, reaching out to supporters in the party’s stronghold. It was the second time Amuriat was campaigning in Teso sub-region this election season.

Speaking to supporters at his home village in Kanyum Town Council, Bukedea District, Amuriat decried the actions of security agencies in dispersing opposition rallies – labelling them as provocative.

“While speaking from home, I want to send a warning to Mr Museveni that he should stop playing with the lives of Ugandans,” he said before adding that;

“He should never provoke the people of Uganda to go to war again. He must respect the people of Uganda when they determine that its time for him to go home.”

On Monday, Amuriat experienced the effects of blunt force from security officers after he was pepper-sprayed by the Elgon Regional Police Commander, Abraham Asiimwe in Bugiri district.

Amuriat, who is riding on a barefoot campaign was rushed to the nearby Fastline Medical Center for urgent medical care.

Speaking about the incident, Amuriat – who has vowed to contest the Electoral Commission’s directives banning rallies in Kampala and other cities and districts, said the police intended to blind him and deny him a chance to talk to his supporters.

Amuriat pledged compensation of cattle stock lost by Teso sub-region during Uganda’s turbulent past. He also pledged to increase investment in Agriculture – the area’s main employer.

Amuriat held several mini rallies in different parts of Bukedea and Kumi districts. He is expected in Amolatar and Lira on Wednesday.
