Kizza Besigye Reveals That Uganda Will Not See Peaceful Power Transfer Under Museveni Rule

The People’s Front for Transition (PFT) leader, Dr Kizza Besigye, has said he has hope for a day when Uganda will have a peaceful power transfer. However he revealed that despite his hope, he is sure it will not happen under President Museveni’s rule.

His remarks follow recent events in Kenya that facilitated a peaceful transition of power from Uhuru Kenyatta to William Ruto. This triggered a lot of comparison between Uganda and her neighbor to the east in different aspects.

During his appearance on NBS TV’s Morning Breeze show, Besigye said Uganda is still far from emulating Kenya. He said the last time the country had a peaceful power transfer happened in 1962 during independence.

He said every change of power has been dogged with violence that has disrupted the country’s socio-economic and political stability.

Regardless though, he believes that one day the country will have an experience of a situation in which Kenya finds itself. However, he also said this will require Ugandans to have a lot of patience.\

“Frankly, I don’t envisage a day when Mr. Museveni will hand over to another president, but I envisage a day when he’ll be gone, whichever way he goes. I envisage it when he is gone. I envisage a day when Uganda will go through a peaceful handover of power but not under Mr. Museveni,” he said.

He told Ugandans to not lose hope because Kenya has been in Uganda’s current situation once before. This happened under the firm grip of Daniel Arab Moi.

This changed when people decided to resist dictatorship through massive protests and other civil means.
