The former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye was speaking this morning during an interview with the NBS Television where he expressed his doubt on the credibility of the coming general election especially the presidential election.
He said that the Ugandans should never treat what is happening in the country casually adding that it is known all along that Uganda would not have free and fair elections, but people must collectively fight to change the situation.
"I have said that we must not treat happens in our country casually. We have known all along that with or without covid-19, Uganda would not have free and fair elections, but we must collectively fight to change the situation," Kizza Besigye.
However, he advised the Ugandans that their efforts and struggle should not just stop after throwing the ballot in the box. He said everyone must remain in the polling station to ensure their votes are counted.
"If it was free and fair election, you would vote and go home. You have to be there because even our polling agents will be arrested," Kizza Besigye.The competition for the presidency is very stiff and has over 10 candidates both independent and those sponsored by different political parties.
