Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate, Patrick Oboi Amuriat said that this is the right time for the people of Kisoro district to vote against Yoweri Kaguta Museveni because he mistreated their son, former Inspector General of Police (IGP), General Kale Kayihura.

Amuriat said this on Sunday while campaigning the at Saza grounds in Kisoro municipality, Rubuguri town council and Nyanamo trading centre in Bukimbiri sub county, Kisoro district.

In March 2018, Museveni replaced Kayihura with Martin Okoth Ochola as the IGP. Kayihura was later arrested and charged with aiding and abetting the kidnap and illegal repatriation of Rwandan refugees. He was also accused of failure to protect war material when he gave guns to an authorized civilian group, Boda-boda 2010 under the leadership of Abdallah Kitatta. He was later released on bail.

Amuriat says that Kisoro people should show Museveni that they were angered by the way he mistreated Kayihura. Amuriat says that the reward for Kayihura was by sacking him yet he helped Museveni do a lot to win the guerilla war. He also says that people should teach Museveni a lesson that using and dumping such vital people is bad governance.

According to Amuriat, Museveni has used and dumped among others, aspiring independent candidate, Gen. Henry Tumukunde, former FDC presidential flag bearer Colonel Dr. Diiza Besigye and former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi.

He promised that once elected president, he will tarmac tourism roads in Kisoro which Museveni has failed to do. He also pledged to construct an airport in Kisoro to help in exporting agricultural produce.
