People Power team leader Robert Kyagulanyi on Monday embarked on yet another election campaign for Hoima Municipality Woman Member of Parliament by election. He was welcomed by hundreds of people in a procession at Butema trading center about 5km from Hoima town .The procession paralysed traffic for close to an hour on Coronation road.
‘‘Our candidate Nyakato Asinasi Kamanda is a brave fighter. We are all encouraged by her courage.’’ He said.
Bobi Wine described Nyakato as a brave Ugandan who believes in a united front to tackle the dictatorship. ‘ ‘That is why we are going into this election as #UnitedForcesOfChange. Indeed, we shared the platform with leaders from different political parties and groups. All of us spoke with one voice.’ ‘ Asinansi Kamanda Nyakato, the Forum for Democratic Change candidate faces off with Harriet Businge Mugenyi from the ruling National Resistance Movement-NRM party
The presidential hopeful implored the people of Bunyoro to reconnect with that spirit of resistance which lived in their grand fathers and mothers.
Wine says he was elated to see most of the people of Bunyoro idolize Kabalega, the great King of Bunyoro who resisted colonial rule, even to the point of death.
Like most Ugandans, Bobi Wine said, the people of Bunyoro are facing a lot of challenges ranging from massive land evictions, unemployment, oppressive taxes, a broken healthcare and education system, etc.
He added: I see the yearning most of you have to change the status quo and build a new Uganda based on social justice and equal opportunity.
President Yoweri Museveni will be in Hoima to campaign for the NRM candidate on September 24. The Hoima woman MP seat fell vacant after Tophace Kaahwa Byagira, the former legislator opted to represent the newly created Kikuube district that was carved out of Hoima and became operational on July 1, 2018.
