Senior opposition leaders yesterday indicated that removing President Museveni’s regime is the “first line of wisdom” if the problems gripping Kampala and the country are to be resolved.
The leaders convened at the UPC headquarters in Kampala where they issued a joint statement read by FDC leader Maj Gen (rtd) Mugisha Muntu.
The leaders, including Mr Olara Otunnu (UPC), Mr Asuman Basalirwa (Jeema) and Mr John Lukyamuzi (CP), spoke of a cloud of fear that they said continues to hang over Ugandans, inhibiting their ability to participate in civic actions. DP’s Norbert Mao was unable to attend because of the short notice, Mr Otunnu said.
They accused Mr Museveni of blocking avenues citizens can explore to choose their leaders like elections.
They spoke strongly in condemnation of Monday’s controversial impeachment of Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago.
“If the prospect of removing the regime through free and fair elections is blocked by Museveni, then the people of Uganda should resort to popular uprisings using non-violent methods to remove this regime, Mr Otunnu said.
