Besigye and Bobi Wine agree on elections strategy

Yesterday 1st August 2022 saw almost all the top leaders and influencers in the Opposition meet at Hotel Africana where they signed a joint Opposition statement about the alleged election malpractice in the country.

For the first time, the National Unity Platform leader Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu agreed with Dr Kiiza Besigye that an election cannot oust Gen Museveni out of power. This is the same venue where Bobi Wine three years ago stood and accused Besigye of standing 4 times and then told the world that elections do not work.

During that time, Bobi Wine strongly believed that elections actually worked hence participation in the polls in 2021 that left him cursing, wounded, disappointed and in total regrets.

On this same occasion, Dr Besigye said that the struggle that the country must undertake is to regain power and influence by shifting power from those who captured it to those who don’t have it. He also added that those with power override whatever law is there and do what they want.

Hon Kyagulanyi further also said that Ugandans cannot pretend to see that Gen Museveni organizes elections, but in real sense organizes a fight where he is over equipped.

He added that an election should be more for sensitization than for winning especially when it is more clear that Museveni decides days, sometimes months who the winner will be.

Kyagulanyi further added that political parties are recognized in a democracy, but in a country where you cannot even organize as political parties, you cannot boast of being political parties.

The lord mayor Erias Lukwago who was also present said that the Opposition rejects the results of the Soroti East By-election as it doesn’t reflect the will of the people.

He added that the election does not in anyway meet the standards of the constitution and it was a mockery of democracy.

He further added that he insists that the provisions of article 3 gives Ugandans a clear way forward on what they should be doing. This articles gives citizens the to overthrow a government that they feel has not done what is required by participating in demonstrations.

Time will definitely tell if the oppostion can wither the storms of temptations and stand together for long to forge an alliance that can take on Gen Museveni’s NRM.
