“There are many moles in the opposition, there’s no doubt about that. What distinguishes a mole from a non-mole is not what they say but their actions,” said Besigye while appearing on the NBS Frontline show.
Besigye however indicated that his close strongman and the Kampala City Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago is not a mole because of his actions when asked.
“Lukwago will continue to be attacked as long as he doesn’t compromise and do what they want,” he said.
For a week now, a letter said to have been authored by the Chief Coordinator of Operation Wealth Creation, Gen Salim Saleh in which he said he had withdrawn his support from Lukwago, has been making rounds on social media and become a topic of discussion.
However, Lukwago and Gen. Saleh have been silent about the issue.
“What we are seeing with the Lord Mayor is not any different from what has been happening in the country.
“They” will try to attach anything to someone who is fighting the junta, so they discourage the population. It’s an old trick used by all juntas,” said Besigye.
