Today the People’s President travelled and Campaigned in Kibaale District; with a massive turn-up; Brief governance issues in the District!
We can see today how the Kibaale district has turned up for the FDC Convoy and the Presidential Candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye, in high numbers and great spirit. This here is campaign rallies and proving the progress of the campaign where the local public shows trust to him and therefore rallies behind without asking questions.
Dr. Kizza Besigye has visited Kizayo internally displaced people’s camp in Kiziranfumbi sub-county in Hoima district. Over 200 people were forcefully evicted february last 2015; one business man Kimera Robert using police. People displayed tear gass cansters which police used to forcefully evict them from the land they have been occupying for 20 years. The Evictee told Besigye that they took the matter to court and court put injuction on eviction which Kimera never heeded to.
Dust repellent! ‘Rtd. Col. Dr Besigye Welcome to the world of dust Kibaale District’ reads the special T-shirt designed for Dr. Kizza Besigye by supporters in Kibaale District. Kibaale District residents do not know how it feels to have their taxes translate into tarmac as they do not have even an inch of tarmac! #WesigeBesigye
Dr. Kizza Besigye’s Message after the rallies today:
“Today we continued with Hoima and we rallied part of Kibaale we are thankful for the hospitality extended to us. Support is massive, it is our duty to protect it using our P10 structures. I call upon all our supporters and Ugandans who want change to continue building the Power 10 structures, this is our mobilization structure to protect our votes and make sure they are counted and in the end count. This is what we have to do in order for us to achieve equal opportunities and shared prosperity for the change we all deserve”. #Wesige Besigye
This here proves yet again how the campaign goes for the presidential FDC candidate and people are really behind him, he doesn’t ferry this people to the rallies and they show up on their merry. So let’s be positive about it 25 days to go, and the momentum is rising for Dr. Kizza Besigye.
