The Alliance for National Transformation [ANT] Party spent Tuesday started the week in Hoima, on an induction tour, aiming at equipping and enabling our sub-regional leaders to be at the frontline of the party’s recruitment activities.
From Bunyoro, its national coordinator Maj Gen Mugisha Muntu said the next stop will be Lango sub-region on Wednesday.
Asked if he will stand for Presidency in 2021, Gen Muntu said: “At the moment we are not focusing on an individual.”
Muntu said he has chosen building ANT as an institution from the grassroots up to the national level, attracting more leaders and mobilising resources.
“If we don’t do that, we can field a candidate who will be left hanging up there without the necessary grassroots infrastructure,” he added.
According to Muntu, ANT will work with opposition forces to field joint candidates at all levels including at presidency.
“I believe we will field joint candidates. There is need for a coalition,” he said.
Muntu formed ANT party in May this year after quitting Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) where he previously served as President and secretary for national mobilisation.
While addressing over 100 ANT coordinators in Bunyoro region on Monday at Eka Hotel in Hoima town, Muntu said Museveni has presented Ugandans with an opportunity for political change in the forthcoming general elections.
“In 57 years of Uganda’s independence, we have been presented with various opportunities for change.
He added: “We now have a new opportunity of politically changing Uganda. There is deep desire for change within NRM and opposition forces. We must seize this opportunity.”
