Ssebutinde says the repeated arrests of Forum for Democratic Change FDC president, Kizza Besigye by Police today, will not solve the impasse between him and the state, but instead paint the state as a violator of human rights.
The latest provisional presidential results released by the Electoral Commission Chairman Dr. Badru Kiggundu indicate that opposition candidate Dr. Kizza Besigye is closing in on the incumbent Yoweri Musevenis lead.
Abudul Nkoola, a resident of Budaka town council says most residents are engaged in fruits and rice farming, but earn peanuts from businessmen who come from as far as South Sudan to take their products at miserable prices.
Independent presidential candidate Venansius Baryamureeba hits back at Museveni saying, It only affirmed my impression of him as a person who is of advanced age and has no more capacity to keep tabs of what is going on and has no idea what is happening on the ground in Uganda.
Aspirants expected to be nominated on November 3 include Museveni at 10 am; Mbabazi at 11 am; Baryamureeba at 12 pm and Lwanga at 2 pm. On November 4, Besigye is to be nominated at 11 am; Bwanika at 12pm and Mabirizi at 2 pm.
A statement from The Democratic Alliance-TDA says Mbabazi and Besigye met for two days under the auspices of the Kofi Annan Foundation as a continuation of their discussions previously held in Nairobi, Kenya.
