The FDC had a convoy from Kampala to Entebbe.
Today we have again seen the power and surge of people surrounding from Kampala down to Entebbe district. The days after NRM have had campaigns; as NRM have had Voter Tourism and their Steady Progress Bus Company or NRM Bus Company with the spokesperson Ofwono Opondo and Mike Sebalu as if there is trouble with the buses, they are the ones to call. While I don’t care about their manufactured Campaigned Rallies and has a picture from the little people really showed up for a stopover.
The FDC and Dr. Kizza Besigye had successful rallies in Entebbe that lasted late into the night; the same as yesterday in parts of Kampala; the continuation of his campaign that has been a victory lap since nomination day in November 2015. Let’s take a look!
The Action was the first the total stop of traffic on Entebbe road as the scorn of people surrounded the convoy on the way to the campaign rallies that the People’s President headed to.
On the road at the Third Hill of Entebbe or the Abaita Babiri where the Police and Police Special Forces Command (SFC) hold the supporters of the People’s President back with the roadblock as they we’re trying to get to his rally.
Best witness report of the day from Mr. Baron:
“Today NRM learn once, atleast you were taught a lesson. And for those who still think there’s no change today State House Entebbe saw it with their real eyes when Besigye held rally in Entebbe with the biggest crowd who are all Entebbe residents. Museveni held his yesterday still in Entebbe and imported over 50 buses and over 50 taxis of people from Busoga, problem came in today when these very many ferried supporters of his refused to leave Entebbe yet Besigye was coming at 5pm. Pressure started drawing no matter how much the police force begged those NRM supporters to leave Entebbe for security reasons, few went but upto now others still remained. As usual Entebbe people are kind principled and mind of their business. Besigye arrives at 5pm it was a lesson for our Busoga brothers and sisters who were ferried to attend Museveni’s rally, from nowhere Kizza Besigye receives the whole Entebbe residents amidst the heaviest security, intimidation etc. The rally went on very well there were no fights but NRM learnt a real lesson”
Later in the evening:
“Police has fired dozens of live bullets against Dr. Kizza Besigye supporters in Kasanje and nobody moved an inch! This is the first act of defiance I have seen. The locals blame a police officer identified as Kiggundu. The crowd has forced the OC to call his men to order after about 20 rounds were fired bit crowd simply chanted ‘tetuvawano tetuvawano mumala budde’ DEFIANCE”
Yet another day the Forum for Democratic Change had a great day on the campaign trail as the road to 18th February seems like shot snap of great rallies in every district and many sub-counties in the country, as it has been from Northern, Eastern, Western and now in the Central Region. Peace.
