Forum for Democratic Change President Patrick Oboi Amuriat (POA), Sunday lost his temper and defied police by sitting in the middle of the road.
Amuriat started his day by celebrating mass at Christ the King Church in Kabale town.
He was accompanied by
Dr Kamara Nicholas (FDC flag bearer for Kabale Municipality), Ms Suzan Tindyebwa (Woman MP Kabale), Mr Nzana Geoffrey Ndorwa East flag bearer and other leaders.
In his speech, POA urged the congregation to support all those contesting on the FDC flag so that he gets leaders that will help in building a new Uganda.
“… where all people are treated equally, where rule of law be respected, where there will be equitable distribution of resources and respect for human rights.”
After the mass, Amuriat and his team tried to head to Cyanika border town where they had a rally.
Police quickly closed the road and denied them access.
The barefooted villager, in defiance, removed police tyre shredders from the road and threw them away.
His convoy them made it through, only to be blocked by police again.
After a serious confrontation, Amuriat in protest decided to sit in the middle of the road.
It took the intervention of FDC Secretary Gen Hon. Nathan Nandala Mafabi and FDC in Kigezi to solve the impasse.
Amuriat had earlier been manhandled by police and army who blocked him from holding any campaign meeting in Kabale town.
“We shall only liberate ourselves through struggle.”
He was later driven to Kisoro where he campaigned among the people of Rubuguri Bukimbiri County.
“We need to fight liberate ourselves from the jaws of dictator Museveni,” he told the gathering.
“This type of violence mated on FDC by the partisan Uganda Police should be condemned with the contempt it deserves.”
Amuriat told the people of Kisoro that he would open the border with Rwanda once elected president.
He said the current problem between the two countries is caused by Museveni.
He promised to restore trade and resolve the conflicts between Uganda and her neighbours.
“Thank you Kabale and Kisoro for standing tall amidst provocations.”
