UPC'S Muzeeyi Faizo

Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) head of media and communication, Muzeeyi Faizo has said that UPC is not ready to join Democratic party (DP) strategy of boycotting the forthcoming 2021 elections.

While addressing the press today at the UPC headquarters at Uganda House along Jinja road in Kampala, Muzeeyi said they believe that everything can be solved through dialogue but not boycott.

“UPC believes in dialogue so I don’t see any reason for the boycott, all we need is to dialogue about the issues and get solutions,” he said.

Yesterday, the leader of Social Democratic Party (SDP) Mike Mabikke rallied Ugandans to boycott the 2021 elections arguing that it is the only possible strategy to remove president Museveni from power.

However, UPC insists that Ugandans are supposed to positively engage in the coming election so that they vote their president. “I wound encourage Ugandans to participate in a free and fair elections and vote their respective leaders,” Muzeeyi said.

When asked about FDC’s new plan to petition the International Criminal Court (ICC) to have President Museveni indicted, Muzeeyi encouraged Ugandans to go and sign on the petition since it helps all Ugandans.

He further urged the Ministry of Education and Sports to scrap the Universal primary Education (UPE) and Universal Secondary Education (USE) and focus on reducing the fees structure for University students.

I’m Going To Use My Expertise As A Casanova To Become MP – Ssegirinya, Stella Nyanzi Pick Nomination Forms….

Published

Kawempe North lord councilor Muhammad Ssegirinya has today become the first person to pick the nomination forms to compete on People Power ticket.

Speaking to this website immediately after picking his nomination forms, Ssegirinya boasted that he is going to use his popularity as a casanova to defeat his competitors.

Ssegirinya wants to stand as Member of Parliament representing Kawempe North constituency which is currently occupied by Latif Ssebaggala.

“The only advice I can give to my friend Latif Ssebaggala (the incumbent) is he should replace me as the lord councilor in Kawempe North because once we go head to head, he will be defeated,” he bragged.

Segirinya added, “Most voters in this constituency are women and when it comes to those issues, I’m an expert and very popular, you know very well what I did when I went abroad, I left all women there crying for me. Right now every woman in Kawempe is crying my name.”

He disclosed that because he has used his position as the lord councilor to lobby for his people by securing for them an ambulance from his friends abroad and give food to the vulnerable people in his area, very many residents are determined to overwhelmingly vote for him.

Ssegirinya rubbished allegations that he is receiving money from NRM party to cause divisions in People Power.

Ssebaggala is also expected to pick the same forms to contest for the same position after dropping his earlier ambitions of contesting for the office of Kampal Lord Mayor which is currently occupied by Ssalongo Erias Lukwago.

Ssebaggala is also expected to tussle it out with the People Power organizing secretary and also Democratic Party strongman Sulaiman Kidandala who has also shown interest in his seat.

In the same development, controversial Makerere University research fellow Dr. Stella Nyanzi has also picked nomination forms from Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) to unseat incumbent Nabilah Naggayi from Kampala Woman Member of Parliament seat.

Others who have picked nomination forms include  Habib Buwembo (from FDC) who wants to unseat Kato Lubwama from Lubaga South.

Alliance for National Transformation (ANT) presidential flag bearer Rtd. Maj. Gen. Mugisha Muntu has revealed that he is going to hire independent scientists to study Uganda’s COVID19 status before participating in the 2021 scientific general elections.

While appearing on CBS radio, Muntu said that as opposition, they lost trust in the Ministry of Health (MOH) scientists especially on the way they are advising government organizations on the status of COVID19 in the country.

Muntu wondered how MOH scientists advised the Electoral Commission (EC) to ban 2021 campaigns political rallies yet thousands of Ugandans are seen every day crowded in different spots in Kampala especially in Kikuubo trading centre.

Muntu insisted that according to footage he is seeing from different parts of the country and from quarantine centres, he has very many unanswered questions in his head concerning Covid19 in Uganda.

He says that if EC allows them to organize political rallies, they will make sure that social distancing is observed and that people who attend rallies wash their hands first and put on masks.

He pleaded with EC to first consult all stakeholders since most politicians don’t have money to facilitate radio, TV, online and newspaper campaigns.

On the issue of being nominated as ANT’s presidential candidate unopposed, Muntu said that he fulfilled all the party requirements and he was the only person who applied for the position.

He boasted that right now, the party leadership is concentrating on building grassroots structures.

He disclosed that their mission is to be the country’s strongest political party five years from now.

He also revealed that ANT strongly supports the idea of having one opposition candidate to challenge President Museveni.

He said that they have held several talks with People Power movement leader Kyadondo East Legislator Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu alias Bobi Wine.
