Besigye: Museveni Regime will Surrender to People Power

Four-time presidential candidate Dr Kizza Besigye has told reporters at his home in Kasangati, Wakiso district that sustained pressure from the people will stop three-decade president Yoweri Museveni from extending his rule.

“Mr Museveni will go. It may take a while but he will eventually be stopped,” Besigye said Tuesday morning.

He also argued that the reloaded walk-to-work protests where he has urged the elite to leave cars at home every Tuesday, and other campaigns are not about him as a person.

“People think this is a ‘Besigye’ thing. It’s not and it has never been. Even during ‘Walk to Work’, I was just an activist.”

He further reasoned that the age limit campaign was not just about the constitution, but the will of Ugandans.

“This is not about the Constitution as a document. It is about the will of the people. Don’t touch the will of the people.”

Besigye once again rallied the elite to join age limit protests until Museveni surrenders.

“Stop moving with your private vehicles on Tuesday and other actions will roll out until the regime surrenders.”
