Presidential aspirant and former Security minister Henry Tumukunde has said he will unveil a pressure group under which he will campaign to unseat his former boss President Museveni in the 2021 General Election.
Lt Gen Tumukunde said the pressure group dubbed ‘Kisoboka’ will have a team of regional representatives in various parts of the country who will be tasked to effect strategies to popularise his message and also mobilise for him the necessary support to win next year’s polls.
“We are going to do a mini-launch on Wednesday [and] it will include some regional representatives. They will be very few because of the Covid rules. Thereafter, we shall lay out the roadmap so that we are clear on how we shall operate,” Said Gen Tumukunde in one of the interviews he had on Nbs Tv
The former spy master said the decision for the formation of the pressure group was because his efforts to secure a political party under which to identify himself were unsuccessful.
“We’ve been trying to work with others and see if we can have a joint team but for now I have decided to first sort out my house and then we can work with others. Sometimes it matters that you have your own home before you can cooperate with others,” Gen Tumukunde said.
He, however, did not rule out supporting a coalition candidate by the Opposition to run against President Museveni because they compare notes as opposition and they have the same goals and objectives,
Gen Tumukunde is also expected to present his manifesto and official electoral roadmap upon for 2021.
