The Alliance for National Transformation-ANT Presidential aspirant Rtd Maj Gen Gregory Mugisha Muntu told journalists in Kampala that a lot is already going wrong under the watch of the commission, signalling inability to independently oversee the forthcoming general election.
The Alliance for National Transformation political party has rolled out a 2021 election roadmap in which they plan to hold primary elections between July, 27 and August, 31 and handle election petitions that might arise from this process between July, 20 and September 4.
Muntu says that the departure brings hope in a field which everyone had been made to believe, is a collection of people without integrity and moral values. He adds that the very act of keeping her promise reenergizes change seeking Ugandans that honest people still exist in the political world.
The declaration comes shortly after Gen. Muntu's endorsement as the party’s candidate in the forthcoming presidential race. The two legislators are part of the group that disagreed with a camp that supported Patrick Amuriat Oboi against Muntu during the 2017 FDC party elections.
General Mugisha Muntu, the former Army Commander and brain behind the opposition Alliance for National Transformation-ANT, says that between 1998 and 2004, 11 senior army commanders tried to influence change by talking to President Museveni but he didn’t buy into their idea.
Muntu was speaking in Bundibugyo on Wednesday while training the coordinators and orient them about the Party’s direction ahead of the 2021 general elections. He said that Ugandans are ready for a new political space which can answer governance challenges and leadership gaps in the country.
According to the Party records, 500 people registered during the party launch at the Kampala Serena Hotel, and from the party headquarters at Buganda Road, while more than 1000 have registered through the Alliance for Transformation online application through Google Play Store.
