The document claimed that FDC’s CEC held a meeting over the weekend and reached a unanimous decision to have the barefoot candidate and party flag bearer Patrick Amuriat bow out of the race and render his support to the independent candidate Gen. Tumukunde who uses the pressure group team Renewed Uganda.
Camp Tumukunde said that such fake news are meant to fail any attempts by the opposition to u unite in the nearing elections.
Gen. Tumukunde insists on driving for change and has urged his supporters to vote any person in the opposition whom they think can lead Uganda forward after Museveni. He added that should both Museveni and opposition candidates fail to raise the required 50% in the elections, he will support and rally behind any opposition candidate that will versus Museveni in the rerun.
FDC hasn’t said anything about the letter.
