Amuriat: ‘We Won’t Massage Museveni’s Dictatorship’
Incoming Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) new president has said his leadership will not handle three-decade leader Yoweri Museveni’s dictatorship with kid gloves.
On Friday, Patrick Amuriat took oath as FDC president at party headquarters in Najjanankumbi along Entebbe Road.
FDC is Uganda’s largest opposition political party.
Last week, the party voted in Amuriat at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.
MUNTU TO AMURIAT
Muntu, who Wednesday said he would not quit FDC, attended Amuriat’s inauguration, and handed over office.
Other guests included former party president Dr Kizza Besigye who backed Amuriat against Muntu.
Kampala Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago, and former DP president Paul Kawanga Ssemogerere also attended.
AMURIAT VOWS TO END MUSEVENI RULE
Days after FDC elected him, Amuriat vowed to end Museveni’s rule by 2021.
Museveni has been in power since 1986.
There is a move to delete the constitutional age limit to allow him rule for life.
Amuriat has today reiterated his vow, emphasising that he would employ defiance to deal with Museveni.
“We cannot continue to massage the dictator. We shall eliminate the dictatorship by defiance,” said Amuriat.
“We will defeat the dictatorship by defiance,” he emphasised.
