By Bobi Wine:

Today is 14th January. On this day last year, Ugandans went out to the polls. Many had to endure the sweltering heat of the sun as they waited for their turn to vote. With thousands of our people already under military detention, Museveni deployed guns, machine guns, mambas and all manner of weaponry everywhere in the country. Then the kind of vote theft, not recorded anywhere else in the past took place. Even then, by the end of voting and despite all the rigging, Museveni realised he was headed for a resounding defeat. And so, aided by Byabakama, he usurped the will of the people of Uganda and announced his coup against the people. Yet again, a small, unpopular, murderous, plundering clique was imposed on the people of Uganda, leaving them with no option but to evoke their inherent right to assert their will through all possible means. And so this effort is still on.

Today reminds us of the sacrifices made by so many patriots over the years to establish constitutional rule in our country. It reminds us of our people in tens of thousands who were massacred in Luwero, thinking they were fighting for freedom and democracy. It reminds us of our own duty as a generation to fight, redeem this nation and say NEVER AGAIN to this kind of humiliation.

May we all renew that commitment, while trusting God. I know for sure, that our struggle will end in victory.

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh!
