FDC Fireman Besigye Shocks Nation Over Presidential Ambitions ,Steps-Down

Forum for Democratic Change fire brand Dr. Col Kizza Warren Besigye  has shocked the nation and stepped down from the political smoke.

Besigye, aged 64yrs made  the revelation on Wednesday at the party headquarters  in Najjanakumbi along Entebbe road.

The FDC party stalwart and four times presidential aspirant made the public announcement to front new faces for the presidential bid ahead of the 2021 scientific general elections.

“He revealed that an election will not liberate the country unless plan ‘B’ is taken into consideration for a free and fair election”,  Besigye said.

He added that he has participated in the previous presidential elections and lost to the incumbent President Museveni since 2001.

Besigye has been forced to step down to give room to the FDC party president Patrick Oboi  Amuriat and the National Party Chairman Waswa Birigwa taste the murky political waters to run for presidency come 2021.

“I have been winning elections but the electoral commission has been playing cat & mouse games which signs show no democracy”. He noted.

He added that  previous elections have been rigged and he has been the victim of  intimidation by the security forces, arrested on several occasions, accused of inciting violence and beaten by police.

Seven months before the 2016 election, Besigye was arrested ahead of a campaign rally, accused of violating public order laws by attempting to hold public meetings without the government’s permission.
