The lord mayor for Kampala Erias Lukwago is very confident that their newly formed coalition known as the People’s Front for Transition will oust President Museveni before 2026.
This alliance that consists of a number of high profile politicians was launched last week at JEEMA offices in Mengo.
Although the coalition excluded Uganda’s biggest Opposition political party currently NUP, the leaders are confident that it will achieve it’s goals although some analysts have warned that this might diminish like those that have come before it.
While talking about this coalition, Lukwago said that it’s very strong and will surely succeed and not fall to the fate that befell it’s predecessors.
“Most of the formations we have had fail in the category of political alliances. We are talking about a front to bring in the much desired change away from the elections. The first thing to do is to stop the political insanity going on in this country and restore sovereignty of the election,” Lukwago who is the national deputy vice chairperson of this coalition said.
He proceeded to say that what had been formed is not an alliance adding that the reason it was called a Front is deliberate and Ugandans should notice the difference.
“A front has purpose; to deal with the political challenges of the day. This is very different,” the lord mayor added.
The lord mayor also said that their priority now is to end military rule and introduce civilian rule.
And since the election couldn’t afford this, they have decided to force a transition with whatever is available at their disposal.
Speaking about the exclusion of NUP from the Front, Lukwago said that this is not a worry for them at the moment and they are confident that with time, all Opposition parties will unite.
Meanwhile, Police issued a warning to this group about holding illegal rallies.
The Police spokesperson Fred Enanga said that these won’t be permitted unless they seek permission from the force.
He added that Besigye is fond of causing chaos in the public and therefore they are keeping tabs on him.
