Starting this Thursday, opposition party Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) has announced through their spokesman, Ibrahim Semujju Nganda, that they will be staying home on Thursday's as a peaceful way of protesting the continued house arrest of Dr. Kizza Besigye at his home in Kasangati.
In the same vein, he has appealed to all those who voted for the FDC flag bearer in the just concluded presidential elections to join them in the struggle.
"Starting this Thursday we will not be going to work every Thursday of the week and we call upon all Ugandans who voted for [Dr Kizza] Besigye to stay home that day. The home imprisonment will be in protest of the detention of Dr Besigye."
The party officials added that even those supporting the President's activities should be boycotted especially the musicians who participated in the Tubonga Nawe project.
"If they come to a function you all leave. If they play a Chameleon [Joseph Mayanja] song when you are in the taxi you leave. This is going to be a peaceful demonstration.."
It's now left to be seen if this will work out but at least the Tubonga Nawe artists are assured of massive support from the NRM party and looking at the International Women's day celebrations at the Kololo grounds, they are busy entertaining the guests. Chameleone, Bebe Cool, King Saha and Leila have so far performed.
Did Ginimbi and Mimi Moana know they were about to die?
