A section of politicians from opposition have launched a new pressure group People’s Front for Transition (PFT) and named former FDC president Dr. Besigye as their leader at the Jeema headquarters in in Mengo, Kampala
“If you miss on building knowledge for 15 million people you have missed out on 30 years of development. Uganda is the only country in Africa at the moment with schools closed. This means the whole world because African is always behind in everything,” Dr Besigye said during his speech.
According to PFT members, Kampala lord mayor Erias Lukwago will deputize Besigye in their pressure group and former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate, Patrick Oboi Amuriat, among others.
Other members include former MP aspirants, Mr Mike Mabike, Mr Lubega Mukaaku and Mr Ken Lukyamuzi.
“We shall make sure the next election will not be just an election because we know that it cannot remove the dictator,” Mr Amuriat said.
However, Jeema president, Mr Asuman Basalirwa did not attend the launch which happened at his party head offices.
