According to him, this is the reason why they were doing everything to stop Dr. Kizza Besigye from going to Soroti. Unfortunately, he went ahead and was there all day campaigning for their Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) candidate.
“The people of Soroti have spoken and are willing to go and vote for Attan Okia on Thursday. NRM is in a panic mood. They are removing NINs from people. They are using money to pay people at night,” he said.
Mafabi however has asked the Electoral Commission to make sure this election is free and fair. He says this country does not only belong to NRM.
“We want to ask Museveni, the government, and the Electoral Commission to allow the election to be free and fair. That way, there will be no chaos in Soroti City East. This country belongs to all of us, and we must respect each other. Museveni is coming to mobilize for his candidate. It doesn’t make sense for Besigye to be stopped when he’s also looking for votes for his candidate.”
Minister Peter Ogwang has however said FDC should stop declaring a win before elections because Museveni won over this place in the 2021 elections.
“For the last presidential election, President Museveni won in this area. So I want to dispel the statement that Soroti has been an FDC stronghold. Nobody should begin to claim that they are strong in this city.”
