Dr. Aggrey Kiyingi, a Ugandan Cardiologist based in Australia, is finalizing his presidential bid for 2016 when he believes he can defeat Mr. Yoweri Museveni who will have been Ugandan president for more than 30 years in 2016.
We have engaged and spoken to a group of young men claiming to be doing Kiyingi’s mobilization work.
These are young men who are well known political activists in Kampala but have preferred to remain annonymous fearing to jeopardize their still very confidential dealings with Kiyingi who recently accused the Uganda government of politically witch-hunting him.
This was after his family was brutally evicted from their residence in Buziga by claimants whose court order police helped to enforce.
Besides a 30 page dossier threatening to topple Museveni’s government, the young men have showed us a business card and fliers on which Kiyingi introduces himself as the chairman of Uganda Federal Democratic Organization (UFDO) under whose auspices he intends to mobilize against Museveni in the run up to 2016.
Kiyingi, whose mobilization website is presented as www.ugandafdo.com, intends to jet into the country in the days to come to prepare for his political movement’s formal launch in February this year.
It wasn’t readily clear if his well known political allies and acquaintances like Kakooza Mutale are behind Kiyingi’s new political activities. Watch this space.
