Justice Ogoola Lures Besigye Back into the Debate

Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye has confirmed that he will attend tomorrow’s live presidential debate at Serena Hotel.

But it necessitated services of Justice James Ogoola who met Besigye today morning in Mbale to convince him to rescind his earlier decision of ignoring the presidential debate.

Besigye said he will attend because president Museveni is also expected to attend since National Resistance Movement (NRM) has not officially informed the organisers that their candidate will not participate.

“My position is quite clear. A debate is of two sides and so we must debate both sides. This morning, I met Justice James Ogoola in Mbale. First he told me that Mr. Museveni has not withdrawn from the debate so they expect him to attend,” Besigye said.

He added; “Secondly, we have also discussed the content of what the debate will focus on. Unless there is anything that changes, all of us should be in attendance. If there are no changes and what I know now remains to be the case, I will be at the debate.

Besigye had earlier said that not participate in the presidential candidates debate if President Museveni is out of it.
