Something that started as rumor in the political field has come out to be proven a fact after general Tumukunde came out and proved his interest to stand against president Museveni. While addressing an interview today at NBS the retired general proved his point of standing towards his long time counterpart president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
It’s noted that Tumukunde was the headliner for President Museveni’s 2016 campaigns and he is known for his action of landing a chopper at the grounds in Fort Portal shortly before, a rally for Independent candidate Amama Mbabazi.
On being like former prime minister who also stood against president Museveni, The retired General also refuted that he would end up with an dreadful performance just like for Amama Mbabazi.
“I have heard a minister (Kamya) here who said You will be like Mbabazi, those are small stories. She should have said I would be like her.”
According to Tumukunde, he has so much support amongst those he has worked with, for instance, the Northern Uganda and Muslims in Kampala.
“In this Kampala alone the biggest vote is from the Islamic community, the people I have been working with while providing security for this country, do we even have enough resources, we depend on people giving us intelligence. Watch the space,” he said.
