"I have not broken any law. I was supposed to be in Gayaza, but I was informed by the DPC that the President wants to use this venue, I understood. I don't want to fight and right now, we are moving to Gayaza so that we do not cause a Presidential embarrassment. My supporters, please restrain from any kind of violence because we can only achieve our goals through the vote and not violence."
