The former presidential candidate Rtd Col Dr Kiiza Besigye has implored the public to remain calm and hopeful to see a Uganda without Museveni as President.
Besigye has been speaking to KFM in reaction to the decision of the NRM Parliamentary Caucus, which yesterday backed President Museveni’s sole candidature come 2021 and beyond.
The proposal was first adopted by the party’s top organ the Central Executive Committee, during their retreat at Chobe Safari Lodge in Nwoya district early this year.
The MPs who are gathered at the National Leadership Institute in Kyankwanzi say that Uganda “is at the most critical and delicate juncture in the process of transformation and that this can’t be the time to let go of Museveni’s visionary leadership.”
Now Besigye says that efforts to cut Museveni’s long stay in power are underway and that Ugandans should have confidence, the NRM Chairman will not be on the ballot come 2021.
