Former presidential candidate, Kizza Besigye, has called on all justice seeking Ugandans to rally behind Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] candidate, Apollo Kantinti, who is vying for the Kyadondo East by-election.
“All my life I have fought for Justice,” Besigye said while rallying support for Kantinti over the weekend at Wampeewo playground.
“It’s because of Justice that I support Apollo. Anybody who is just should support Hon. Apollo Kantinti,” he added.
He was accompanied by the entire FDC leadership including the party president Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu, secretary general Nathan Nandala Mafabi, secretary for mobilisation Ingrid Turinawe and party national chairman Waswa Birigwa, among others.
Besigye said he had already told all those contesting that it’s only fair to support Kantinti.
Ingrid, on her part, said she was just feeling good after talking to the “real voters” of Kyadondo East.
“We petition you, people’s court which is more supreme than any other court on the land. Judge this case with fairness. Dispense justice, Hon Kantinti was voted for a five years term.”
She said it was Kantinti who genuinely won the 2016 elections.
“Why do we throw him out before completing his term? Why him? Awaiting People’s judgement on 29th June,” Ingrid noted.
