He made the remarks on Monday morning at his Kololo-based office in Kampala ahead of his nominations slated at 1pm shortly after his former boss, President Museveni.

“We shall continue struggling but should we in the process of this exercise find that we are not doing anything like an election, some of us may have to choose to leave and not legitimacy to what otherwise is not an election,” Gen Tumukunde said.

Gen Tumukunde was cleared for nomination and hopes to unseat his former boss and bush war comrade in next year’s poll.

 

He will be contesting as an independent candidate under his ‘Renewed Uganda’ platform that he inveigled in August this year.
