UGANDA: FDC to soon unveil flag bearer
By CHANGE OF GUARDS
Ugandans will be shocked when the FDC will eventually present its flag bearer. Tamale Mirundi has opined;
President Museveni’s adviser on media Joseph Tamale Mirundi has revealed that opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) are negotiating with former security Minister Rtd. Lt. Gen Henry Tumukunde to stand as their party presidential candidate in the coming 2021 general elections.
“I always tell you that people who control Besigye are in government and they are the ones facilitating his political activities. They fear that if they don’t create their own opposition and Museveni loses power, they will lose all the wealth they have illegally accumulated,” Mirundi said.
He rubbished rumours that if Besigye doesn’t stand, FDC is going to front Kira Municipality Member of Parliament Ibrahim Ssemujju Nganda or Nathan Nandala Mafabi.
He added that the reason why FDC wants to front Tumukunde is because he was given a lot of money which he is going to use during the campaigns which other competitors don’t have.
