Kampala FDC Youths Vow to Front Besigye for President
Opposition Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Youths in Kampala Central are set to front the former party president, Col. Dr. Kizza Besigye as the party presidential flag bearer in the coming delegates conference.
The youths will hold a press conference tomorrow at City House in Kampala with an intention of calling upon Besigye to offer himself as a flag bearer in the race.
According to their set plan, the youth plan to among others campaign and rally support for doctor Besigye amongst the party delegates to ensure that he wins the race.
“Who would you trust to compete for presidency between Gen Muntu and Col Kizza Besigye at the national level?; as the youth we maintain Besigye is our presidential candidate,” the youth were heard in a discussion at FDC office at City House.
“We know Besigye hasn’t yet revealed his plans but we will petition him and make sure that he at last stands for the party flag.”
The youth plan to among others mobilize funds through fundraising within Kampala and metropolitan areas to be used during the campaigns.
This comes after the party president; Gen. Mugisha Muntu announced his bid to run for the party bearer during the party’s special delegates conference.
