Besigye, Mbabazi still in talks


By Joyce Nakato

Forum for Democratic Change flag-bearer Dr. Kizza Besigye and former prime minister Amama Mbabazi are still in talks over joint candidature for 2016 elections.

This is in the continued search for a joint presidential candidate for The Democratic Alliance (TDA) that many people have written off after it failed to choose a joint candidate recently.

In a statement released by Godber Tumushabe, the alliance's coordinator, the continued deliberations are a continuation of the talks that were held between both parties in Nairobi under the Koffi Anan Foundation.

Tumushabe reveals that the two contenders met in Manchester London, along with Bishop Zac Niringiye and Nandala Mafabi, the FDC secretary general, to hold further talks in the hope of reaching a final decision with both members expected to communicate the outcome of these deliberations to their respective political structures.

Reports indicate that while Besigye has ruled out the possibility of standing down for Mbabazi in the 2016 presidential elections, foreign powers seem determined to persuade the FDC politician to re-think the move.
