War: FDC to announce its own Results as EC announces its own

Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) is set to announce their own results as opposed to what the Electoral Commission will announce, before today ends. According to sources, FDC got its own tally centre and came up with their own results which they will announce something Badru Kiggundu the electoral Commission says it is violation of the laws governing the electoral process. FDC having been complaining that their votes are not announced as they are casted, and they decided to make their own tally centre which will challenge the Electoral Commission Uganda if they try to announce results that do not match with the ones they will be having.
Yesterday 19th Feb after an attempt to announce their own results amidst the press at the party headquarters, Najjanankumbi, Police arrested them (Photo above) before the results were announced which sparked off chaos in various parts of the city, especially along Entebbe road and Kiseka market. Police said that it is against the law to announce the results the constitution mandates only the electoral commission to be the one to announce the results.
Protest
Some rumors from the FDC Tally centre have it that FDC wants to declare victory for their candidate with 57% as they say it’s the results they have confirmed from their tally centre, they are placing the incumbent the 2nd with 41.7%. The party President Mugisha Muntu while addressing the media in Kasangati at the home of the party flag bearer Kizza Besigye confirmed that they are preparing to announce their own results since they have already found huge differences in their results and the provisional results issued by Badru Kiggundu which they say will not trust and will thus announce their own results. He said that they are doing meetings before they announce the results and their fans should remain calm and waiting till they announce their own results not the results from the electoral commission.
Yesterday, a group of opposition agents left the Namboole National Tally Centre protesting the provisional results issued by the electoral commission which they say are fake and biased towards the incumbent. However others are saying that opposition are doing the possible things to make them reject the results since it has started appearing that the incumbent may win. Various injustices have been commented on by various people on the provisional results and the most common comment has been delaying of results from the districts which are the opposition strongholds.
Mugisha Muntu, Erias Lukwago and other key FDC officials are currently in Kansangati with their presidential flag bearer Kizza Besigye who doubles as the head of Mobilization Rukungiri District on the FDC committee and it’s not yet clear if they have come to declare their results. Police is also surrounding the home Kizza Besigye under what they call “preventive house arret” and will keep around his home till the results are announced according to Andrew Felix Kaweesi the police Commander of Kampala Metropolitan.
People are still in fear of unrest “kavuyo” and a war if the opposition declare a candidate as a winner as electoral commission announces the other as this may spark off the battle for power among the two declared winners by the two separate entities the National Tally Centre headed by the Electoral Commission and the FDC tally centre.
