Bobi Wine, the Kyadondo East legislator and the People Power leader yesterday on Tuesday on 24, September during Hoima by-elections campaign rally for the Hoima District Woman legislator, Asinansi Nyakato an opposition candidate.

Bobi asked voters to vote for Nyakato, in tomorrow’s elections that’s the 26th of September, 2019.

Addressing the rally, Bobi Wine said that the election has given room for Bunyoro District voters to worldly manifest their political interests.

“The whole world is looking at you. You cast your vote of freedom without any fear. You are grandsons of Kabalega, a brave King who was not timid,” Bobi Wine said.

Continuing, Bobi Wine informed the gathering not to fear the Police on the ground, because Police Officers are Ugandans who are going through related issues the rest of Ugandans are facing.

“They are our fellow Ugandans. Don’t get angry with them. Let them not intimidate you. In the previous by-elections we had, they brought those police trucks, but we defeated them in Jinja, Bugiri, Rukungiri and Arua.”

Nyakato, who’s the joint opposition candidate in this Hoima by-elections, requested voters to offer her their votes while speaking to her supporters in her last time campaigns rally yesterday at Dwoli Primary School Hoima.

“The contest is between those who are well off and the poor. The vote is between the oppressed and the oppressors. It’s between the People who are comfortable and those facing difficulties,” Nyakato said. “Give me a protest vote. You say no to oppression, land grabbing, poor service delivery and being taken for granted.”

In Nyakato’s further remarks, she said that most health care facilities in Hoima District are in a sole state, with no medicines for patients.

However, Barnabas Tinkasimire, the Buyaga West legislator (NRM), who was present at the rally asked voters to vote for Nyakato such that she adds up to the Bunyoro region vocal legislators team.

“I have been in Parliament for 15yrs. I have repeatedly raised Bunyoro issues alone. Give me one more person, with whom I will advocate for Bunyoro. Vote for Nyakato,” Tinkasimire asked voters.

Also, Mr Harold Kaija, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Party Deputy Secretary-General speaking, said that as soon as Nyakato is elected to Parliament, she will table a motion seeking revision of the oil laws, such that the oil-rich communities get more economic returns.

Kaija said FDC Party seeks Uganda’s oil laws to offer 75% oil revenue to Central Government, 25% to the oil regions and 5% to the districts that generate oil.
