While on his FDC Party Presidency campaign in the Teso sub region delegates, candidate Mugisha Muntu who is seeking another term of Office warned Ugandans that some of his colleagues in the Party subscribing to activism under the defiance campaign pose a great danger to both FDC and Uganda.
"We have supported defiance as a party by contributing money and in terms of policies we make as a party. The only thing I care about is that psychology of its only we of defiance who matter, the rest don't. People who do that can be a danger to not only the party but also to the country" Mugisha Muntu said adding that if not checked early this group has capacity to grow into a political cult.Here below we reproduce the whole speech Defiance is a legitimate tool. I participated in it in physical terms by taking up arms. I went to the bush and fought for 5years. What is more of defiance than that?. I know colleagues in defiance who are
By Spear Team FDC President Gen. Mugisha Muntu has asked Ugandans and Africa to support Kenyans as they go to polls again to decide on the future of their country. Muntu’s remarks were issued in a statement on Friday after Supreme Court of Kenya nullified President Uhuru Kenyatta’s victory after hearing a case that was lodged by Raila Odinga and his NASA coalition. “In taking this precedent step, the supreme court of Kenya made it clear that electoral bodies can no longer take citizens for granted. They must deliver to people a true, accurate, and transparent reflection of the nation’s will and anything short of this is unacceptable.” Muntu’s statement reads. He adds that the ruling was based on the fact that IBEC was unable to demonstrate that the results they announced where the properly and fairly tallied expression of Kenyan voters. Muntu praised Kenyans for confronting this electoral challenge and choosing to solve it peacefully and democratically.
The most wonderful thing with elections especially internal party elections is that words spoken against colleagues die off fast soon after the campaigns. Still, although mature politicians leave these words to pass, the scars live on and at times when scratched they bleed into septic wounds that may never heal. The FDC internal Presidential campaigns are bringing out the worst the party has sat on for years. Actors from both the Mugisha Muntu and Amuriat camps are without any form of control hurling insults to discredit leaders, telling outright lies and blackmailing each other like never before. Social media has added a new avenue for activists on both sides to issue missives on behalf of their camps with authority though the same might not have been discussed and agreed upon. Today we bring you a dossier by a senior Mugisha Muntu campaign agent in which he denounces FDC's biggest ally in the Capital City politics as having had no role in the victories
The most important argument in the ongoing FDC elections is whether one is categorized as defiant or complaint to Museveni's rule. Mugisha Muntu is accused by his opponents as belonging to the complaint opposition that Museveni "loves" while at the same time he has accused the former party President Dr. Besigye of monopolizing the defiance campaign.
But does Besigye own the Defiance movement in Uganda? Omar Kalinge Nyago traces for us the origin of the non violent strategy to fight Museveni and RE-DECLASSIFIEDORIGINS OF DEFIANCE AS A POLITICAL METHOD IN UGANDA As the debate on defiance rages, it is timely to bring this declassified information, and if remembered, especially by those who were part of the initial effort- it can help redirect their energy to the liberation of our country. As it turns out, some of them are now on opposite sides (of the opposition) today which is natural. Among the women I can only recall only o
Gen. Mugisha Muntu, has been nominated today to compete for the Office he has held for two team. After the nomination Mugisha Muntu was hosted by MP Kiira Municipality Ibrahim Ssemujju for a public rally at Jokas Bweyogerere, Kira Municipality.
At the rally Mugisha Muntu who enjoys big support among FDC MPs threw veiled attacks at former Party President Kizza Besigye. One interesting line in his Speech was. "...... when I lose, I don't create parallel structures, I go behind the party........."This was viewed by observers as a jab at Besigye whom the Muntu camp faults for creating activism outfits like walk to work,siren,defiance campaign that have overshadowed the FDC party. Ironically Besigye is not in the race with Muntu this time. He is however (Besigye) believed to be supporting Muntu's rival Oboi Amuriat. At the same rally Muntu FDC members for choosing "continuity and experience " when they got out in big numbers to escort him as he went for nomin
The fact that Budadiri West MP Nandala Mafabi opted out of the Forum for Democratic Change presidential race when all indicators showed that he was the most favourite among the contenders has left many people guessing on what his likely to be his next move. The Ugandan an online media house quoting a unrevealed source alleges that Nandala believes the main opposition party is now becoming irrelevant and would therefore be launching a new political party. Under the current law Mandala cannot cross from FDC to form a new political party without missing his seat. He can however join another party in 2020,a year before the general election. Mafabi’s longtime rival Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu is today Monday being nominated for re-election as party president.
Political analyst say this election his likely to leave FDC more divided than before and signs that the biggest opposition party might split into a new party are visible.In 2012, Muntu de

By Spear Team Mukono municipality MP, Betty Nambooze Bakireke has criticized president Museveni for being deceitful and not telling his right age. Quoting from the bible, Psalms 90:10 that says, ‘Our days may come to seventy years, or eighty, if our strength endures; yet the best of them are but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly pass, and we fly away,” Nambooze said that at 73 Museveni is alive for Godly reasons but can’t add any value to the life of Ugandans. “We are asking Mr. Museveni to respect his own constitution of 1995 that was drafted by himself not that of Sir Edward Museveni, Milton Obote. It is this same constitution that says that a person who is above 75 will not contest for presidency. We didn’t ask him to publicly announce that over staying in power is Africa’s problem”, Nambooze added. Nambooze added that whatever is happening is a problem of Ugandans because Museveni is determined to take people’s land and create a complete
The longest serving president of Uganda Yoweri Museveni can laugh himself silly if he gets to listen to the US President Donald Trump who is already missing his private life after only 100days in Office. Having been in power for thirty one years Museveni has seen six US presidents and if Ugandans don't wake up, Museveni may see another US President while in Nakasero state lodge.
