Kampala Lord Mayor and also a member of the People’s Government, Erias Lukwago revealed that President Museveni has already rigged the upcoming 2021 general elections,
Lukwago noted that casting a vote alone would not be enough to oust incumbent President Museveni unless they create an environment for free and fair elections which is impossible because Museveni has the army and Police on his side.
He said: “Casting the ballot alone is not enough to get rid of Museveni. We need to create an environment for a free and fair election. As we speak, he has already rigged the election. Do we have an independent Electoral Commission (EC) that can deliver a free and fair election? It is rooted in illegalities. Justice Byabakama is holding the position illegally.”
Lukwago went ahead to compare President Museveni to a “demi-God” who according to him has to be gotten rid of because he is one step ahead of the opposition as long as they don’t unite, he can’t be ousted.
“We have a demi-god of sorts. That is the challenge we are facing. As much as we have individual ambitions, let us have a common ground [of removing Museveni],” Lukwago said.
Lukwago added that he is still serving the term that was entrusted to him by the people of Kampala but his mind is now preoccupied with making sure that the opposition regains power instead of snatching ‘a few positions here and there when the country is still under captivity of President Museveni.
