Four time presidential candidate, Rtd. Col. Dr. Kizza Besigye has today embraced the newly ‘No nedda’ campaign in which common oppressed citizens are to express their disgruntlement over the impeding mismanagement of the country by the incumbent NRM militaristic government.
Happening now at his Kasangati residence in Wakiso district, the veteran politician has rallied his supporters to chant and hit saucepans as one of the peaceful means of protesting. In a livestream ongoing on his Facebook page, FDC loyalists and activists are seen blowing vuvuzelas and whistles shouting at the helm.
The ‘No Nedda’ campaign was launched yesterday by the United Forces of change in a presser that was convened at Flora hotel, Wakiso. Flanked by the People Power, People’s Government and other pro-change parties apart from DP and ANT which declined to take part, the attendants resolved to effectively lead coordinated mass nationwide peaceful protests. The leaders urged oppressed Ugandans to hit saucepans, blow whistles, hoot and honk at every noon hours as a ‘time up’ signal to the 1% in top positions.
Also relatedly, People Power activists homes have been sealed off by the police to block them from advancing beyond their premises. Makindye West MP hopeful, Musiri David just confirmed to this site that police have rounded off his home in Salaama road. Other People Power activists in Rubaga have also made similar confessions to this site. Speaking to the Kampala police commander in a phone dialogue, he intimates that they are fully aware that opposition politicians are plotting subversive activities. “They want to burn shops, loot people’s businesses and rally people on streets. We can’t let that happen. So we are doing a preventive arrest,” he retorted.
