presidential candidate in the 2016 general elections Maureen Faith
Kyalya Waluube has conceded defeat and congratulated Yoweri Museveni
upon his victory as the president elect.
Ms Kyalya says her call throughout the campaigning has been of peace,
unity and a cooperative Uganda, saying though there were some
irregularities of voter bribery and intimidation; she is smaller than
Uganda and therefore willing to abide by the majority decision.
“Surely the ground was unleveled but as a mother, who loves peace and
Unity, I am already in my garden in Bugweri cultivating my garden and
I urge all Ugandans to do the same for the good of our country. We can
sort out our grievances in 2021 in the ballot again” she said.
Kyalya also agreed to work with president Museveni if given any
opportunity in the new government come May this year.
“You remember in the last presidential debate Mr Museveni and I had a
chart where he agreed to be my chief advisor and I also offered to
serve in his government and now that Ugandans have amidst odds given
me few votes including my very own home people in Busoga who plight I
fight for, I will work with him if called to though I am not looking
for any job” she noted.
“She however passed a strong caution to members of the opposition
especially the youth to mind their work and painful accept the
election results. “All of us candidates have money thus we were
able to pay nomination and facilitate our campaigns but I sympathize
with my young brothers who leave their small businesses and activities
to fight wars that do not belong to them. I advise you to desist from
chaos for the good of Uganda” she said.
Kyalya polled 40,598 Votes representing (0.44%)
