Presidential Aspirants Amama Mbabazi and Dr. Kizza Besigye.
Dr. Kizza Besigye, the Foroum for Democratic Change Party Presidential candidate and his rival Amama Mbabazi have met in United Kingdom to discuss strategies of winning the 2016 polls. 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.

 

“We have made substantial progress in preparations for the 2016 general elections, we will subsequently report to our respective political structures so as to complete the arrangements guaranteeing our success in the presidential elections”, reads part of  the joint press statement issued by the two presidential contenders.

 

Recently, TDA officials led by Dr. Olara Otunu, the Uganda People's Congress president met Raila Oginga Odinga, the leader of the Coalition for Reforms and Democracy (CORD) in Nairobi Kenya to discuss how to manage Besigye and Mbabazi's campaigns.  They also discussed the 2016 elections and the Electoral Commission.

 

Bishop Zac Niringiye, the Director TDA Secretariat told URN that they sought to tap into Kenya\'s rich experience with alliances by consulting and comparing notes with political leaders in the East African region.  Despite this, Mbabazi and Besigye didn\'t agree on a single candidate, which is seen as the best option for TDA to win the 2016 presidential race. They then agreed that the two presidential aspirants continue talking towards agreeing on a single candidate.
