- “President Museveni himself said that when you get so old, you damage parts of your body. Museveni is tired and that is why we the youth want to retire him peacefully. Our supporters are not fools; they want change,”
Glaring scenes of verbal-confrontation between NUP presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi and NRM presidential candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni continue to dominate the electoral campaigns
“I sympathize with President Museveni for calling my supporters fools,” National Unity Platform [NUP] presidential candidate Mr Robert Kyagulanyi said Sunday, just a day after incumbent president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni said, “Kyagulanyi has fools who are backing him for presidency.”
Mr Museveni, whose administration has been at the helm of Uganda’s leadership for more than three decades has continuously used his campaigns to lash out at foreigners who he says are ignorant about “matters of Uganda.”
“Amongst the fools supporting Bobi Wine are the Europeans. They became fools long time ago. I also know the fools supporting him within Uganda,” Mr Museveni told National Resistance Movement (NRM) leaders and flag bearers during his campaign meeting in Hoima City on Saturday.
While on his campaign trail at Ruhindi, Mbarara City, the Kyadondo East MP responded saying: “It is dangerous and saddening to have a president that still thinks, reasons and acts like Mr Museveni.”
“President Museveni himself said that when you get so old, you damage parts of your body. Museveni is tired and that is why we the youth want to retire him peacefully. Our supporters are not fools; they want change,” he added.
“For Museveni to get people on his side, he either coerces or bribes them but money won’t solve all our problems. Bribery does not put medicines in hospitals or pay medical workers or security people. Besides, he won’t be able to buy all the people,” the musician turned politician added.
