Dr. Kizza Besigye, Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine) Annouce a Political Coalition

People Power Movement head Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine and People’s Government president Dr Kizza Besigye have agreed to form a political alliance.

In a press conference that took place at Rose Gardens, Wakiso on Monday, the two leaders agreed to adopt a non-violent strategy to end the 34 years rule of President Yoweri Museveni ahead of 2021 general elections.

In a show of unity to take on the current government in power, Kizza Besigye, the architect of Defiance in Uganda and President of People’s Government; Robert Kyagulanyi (Bobi Wine), leader of People Power and Erias Lukwago the leader of Truth & Justice agree to jointly work with leaders of organized opposition political parties and organizations aligned towards Defiance to oust the current government peaceful.

The Unity Platform of leaders in FDC, DP, UPC, JEEMA, CP, TJ, People’s Government and People Power but is not an ELECTORAL PLATFORM.

Hon. Kyagulanyi: The more we fight against each other, the more we delay the change that Ugandans want. As leaders, we can only see and show you the way but we must all work together.  I call upon all Ugandans to speak up and speak loudly. Say ‘No’ in word and in action. This is going to be the necessary noise.

The platform is to advance defiance as a means of struggle to remove Museveni from power peaceful and stop him from organizing or being a candidate in future sham elections.

The Unity Platform is a crystallization of months of subtle private engagements to get most opposition political actors to embrace Defiance as a legitimate method of struggle to weaken, disable and disrupt Museveni’s plans to extend his stay in power.

The leaders were emboldened to unite to firmly and decisively respond to current glaring illegalities in the fight against Covid-19, where the president declared a lockdown without emergency social welfare plans, exposing Ugandans to distress and hardship.

Aware of the many crises arising from the NRM junta’s inefficiencies and mismanagement of state affairs, the leaders agree that it’s logical and necessary for people to rise up and put an end to the junta.

They cite theft of COVID-19 funds, hunger and starvation, paralysis of education and health sectors, disruption of transport, high unemployment and loss of jobs, business constraints and decline especially of SMEs, lack of capital to pay utility bills and rent as signs of incompetence.

The Unity Platform leaders now call citizens into ACTION NOW.

The Joint Communique of the United Forces of Change is read by JEEMA President Asuman Basalirwa and TJ Leader Erias Lukwago.

Towards the end of this joint press conference Police, Army & LDUs raid a meeting at Floral Hotel Wakiso where Bobi Wine & Kizza Besigye were launching a joint political platform but Besigye continued with his address.
