Besigye says Mess in Kenya started with the torture and killing of people


The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) party flag bearer in the 2016 Uganda General election Dr. Kiiza Besigye has blamed the Kenyan government institutions for the mess going around the election.

Besigye says that Kenya would have had a free and fair election if they had sticked to the lawful principals of the process.

The former presidential aspirant adds that the Kenyan the danger in Kenya rose from the Kidnapping, Torture and Killing of the person who was in charge of ICT at IEBC.

“No people shall ever become free without struggling for their freedom, freedom is just earned.” He stated while addressing the press at his office on Katonga Road a Kampala Suburb.

The 1986 bush war veteran added that though he participated in a violent struggle that brought Mr. Museveni to power but now he is in a nonviolent struggle. We can defeat a violent struggle with non-violent means.

However Besigye was hesitant to recommend any thing to National Super Alliance but promised to share notes with NASA at a later time.

On July 31st, a senior Kenyan election official was found murdered on Monday, three days after he went missing.

Chris Msando, the election board’s head of information, communication and technology, was tortured before he died but till today no clear information has been released by the State about what could have claimed the life of Msando.

Kenya’s main opposition group, the National Super Alliance (NASA), has repeatedly accused the government of trying to rig elections.

“It is telling that the key person who was perhaps holding very vital passwords has been eliminated at this delicate time,” NASA’s Musalia Mudavadi said.
