FDC supporters are mobilizing funds to buy land to the national leaders who pitched camp in the area to protect the vote from being ridged.
Ms. Winfred Kiiza beat NRM’s Rehema Muhindo with a difference of 37723 votes, which the FDC supporters believe was a result from strict protection of the vote by the entire team from the national office led by Gen. Mugisha Muntu.
According to Mr. Gregory Kabunele who coordinates the fundraising strategy, the FDC supporters in Bukonzo West constituency have identified three key people for whom they will buy land and they include Gen. Mugisha Muntu, outgoing party president Dr. Kizza Besigye and Amin Ader.
Mr. Amin Ader is son to former President late Idi Amin Dada and was among the front line commanders for the FDC campaigns in Kasese.
Mr. Kabunele says that first on the agenda is Gen. Mugisha Muntu for protecting the vote from being rigged in Bukonzo West constituency that was being commanded by area MP and defense minister Dr. Crispus Kiyonga on the other hand.
The FDC supporters say they will collect 36M shillings to buy land for the three at 12M each and spread them across the entire district.
Mr. Kabunele who claims that Defense Minister Dr. Crispus Kiyonga has been failing progress in the district by masterminding bad politics was humbled by the efforts of the trio when they camped in the district for the by-elections.
Gen. Muntu will have land in Bukonzo West, Dr. Kizza Besigye in Busongora North and Mr. Amin Ader in Busongora south where NRM had concentrated its campaigns for the by-elections.
The FDC coordinator for Bukonzo West constituency Mr. Martim Masereka said that their work is to have the land ready and then inform the new occupants to construct homes so that they can freely stay and operate in the district.
Mr. Masereka who is also the Chairman LC 3 of Karambi sub-county said that the three members of parliament on the opposition hailing from Kasese district are not part of the contribution but they are welcome if they so wish.
