Dr. Kizza Besigye Wants Pope To Pray For Peaceful Transition

 

The opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) flag Bearer Dr. Kiiza Besigye says his prayer is that the pope engages president Yoweri Museveni on the need to have peaceful transfer of power.

Addressing the media at his home in Kasangati, Wakiso district on Thursday morning, Dr. Besigye said that the Pope’s visit is a blessing because the country needs prayers especially now that the national elections are around the corner.

Meanwhile in a separate development, Dr. Besigye has hit back at the Election Commission for branding him a lawbreaker saying it should take action instead of complaining.

Besigye today began his Mukono district rallies with stopovers at Nakasajja trading center, Kalagi junction, Nakifuma market and Naggalama trading center.

Warren Kizza Besigye Kifefe (born 22 April 1956), commonly known as Kizza Besigye, is a Ugandan physician, politician and former military officer, in the UPDF. He served as the Party President of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) political party and was a contestant in Uganda’s 2001, 2006 and 2011 presidential elections, but lost in all of them to the incumbent Yoweri Museveni, who has been President of Uganda since 26 January 1986. Results of 2006 elections were contested in court, where court observed massive rigging and disenfranchisement. He allowed an early internal FDC election which took place on 24 November 2012 for a successor Party President (PP). He decided that the successor PP should preferably be in place earlier than planned, to allow the new PP enough time to prepare the Party for the next cycle of general elections.
