Forum for Democratic Change President Gen Mugisha Muntu has said the party presented a presidential candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye who represents what real change means.
Muntu said Besigye represents the people’s desire for change; a change from dictatorship to freedom and a change from patronage to equal opportunity.
“We are presenting Ugandans with a candidate who represents what real change means. The FDC presidential candidate Col. (Rtd.) Dr. Kizza Besigye is a People’s President. He represents the aspirations of our nation’s desire for change. A change from dictatorship to freedom. A change from patronage to equal opportunity. A change from economic deprivation to shared economic prosperity,” Muntu said in a statement released yesterday.
He added; “In the candidature of Dr. Besigye, the FDC is presenting a real choice to the people of Uganda. Dr. Besigye represents our promise and commitment to offer Ugandans a brand of political and public service leadership that is transformative, selfless and patriotic.”
He noted that Besigye is a President who will wake up every day thinking of how best government can make our lives better and our country safer, “how our children can get a better education that enables them to compete here at home and abroad, and the quality of health care our mothers get when they get to our hospitals and health centres.”
Besigye is tussling president Museveni for a fourth consecutive time.
