Museveni, Bobi Wine and Besigye sets for Bugiri battle

Museveni and Besigye

The ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party chairman General Yoweri Kaguta Museveni is expected to campaign in newly created Bugiri municipality today.

Museveni will be drumming up support for the party flag bearer John Francis Oketcho as he continues with his bid to have firm grip on the legislator by having more than two thirds of members in the house.

According to NRM publicist Roggers Mulindwa, Museveni will address one rally in the municipality at Bukooli Technical School playground.


On the Same day Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) former presidential candidate and opposition leader Dr. Kizza Besigye will be in the municipality to campaign for party flag bear Eunice Namatende.

Besigye is expected to be joined by FDC Party President Eng. Patrick Amoriat Oboi, Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago and other top party official.

Asuman Basalirwa team is also expecting Ghetto president who doubles as Kyadondo East member of parliament Hon Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine to grace their campaign.

Tomorrow will be the last official day for campaign in the race that has been mars by violence and accusations from each camp against the other.

FDC has on various occasions accused NRM of vote buying while NRM has been accusing FDC and Asuman Basalirwa camp of inciting violence and spreading proganda against the ruling party.

Yesterday evening, former Leader of oppositions in Parliament Phillips Wafula Oguttu accused the ruling party of dishing out money targeting opposition supporters.

He accused State minister for Lands Persis Namuganza who is also Bugiri district woman member of parliament for leading the money distribution team at various locations across the constituency.

Using his official social media accounts, Oguttu posted


“Bugiri elections highly commercialized. For the past three days Minister Persis Namuganza has been engaged in meeting large groups of voters and giving out shs.20k to each one. She is particularly targeting FDC members. Right now, she is at Bukooli College distributing money to hundreds of people while more hundreds are at the school gate locked out and struggling to go in. She keeps on changing distribution centers and hordes of people moving in large groups looking for money”.
