European Union are not doing enough to bring Museveni on knees, FDC Patrick Oboi Amuriat

FDC President, Patrick Oboi Amuriat took to the public through the Daily Monitor to confirm that his party will not change their support to have President Museveni kicked out, affirming their working together with Bobi Wine for the betterment of Uganda.

“On Thursday, we will be talking to the European Union representatives in the country. We did speak with them prior to the elections and we told them that they were not doing enough to ensure that the dictator is brought to his knees,” the FDC president told the Daily monitor.

Mr. Amurait blasted the EU for doing nothing in the face of brutality that was reported during the January 14, 2021 elections, adding that they had relaxed a move that spurred reactions amongst Ugandans.

“They thought that one more elections would probably help us to be proved wrong, but it hasn’t because in the election of 2021 the only constant person who has been in every election was President Museveni. The rest of the candidates were all newcomers,” he said earlier.

He further pointed out many Ugandans had hoped that the 2021 election would have brought change and freedom but that was not the case, asking the EU to respond in the face of Supreme court move to either reject or accept the victory awarded to President Museveni.

“What this election has helped us was to prove wrong even the most optimistic people and players who thought that this election would bring change,” he added.

Mbabazi joining Bobi Wine legal team first amended Bobi Wine’s entire petition as he did in the 2016 petition of Amama Mbabazi. One of the grounds added in Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Petition states that Museveni was not qualified to stand in the 2021 general elections and also argue that according to the 2020 parliamentary amendments on presidential elections, which states that for anyone to stand for political office, he/she should not be working in any government organisation or body, but by the time Museveni stood for president, he was still the Commander in Chief of the armed forces and the chief finance minister facilitating the electoral process in which he was a participant and appointed his son Lt. Gen. Muhoozi Kainerugaba to head the Special Forces Command.
