BBC’s Alan Kasujja avoids 2nd presidential debate


BBC presenter, Allan Kasujja, has resolved not to moderate the second presidential live TV debate.

Kasujja made the revelation in a Twitter message Thursday.

“I will not be moderating the next Presidential Debate because of other commitments,” he said.

Kasujja moderated the first debate held at January 15, 2016 alongside KTN presenter, Nancy Kacungira.

Unconfirmed reports say Kasujja will now be replaced by Voice of America and Straight Talk Africa host, Shaka Ssali.

The second debate is scheduled for February 13, 2016, according to Justice James Ogoola, the chairman organising committee.

“The second presidential debate on Feb 13 will focus on foreign policy and will be held at Serena,” Ogoola said while appearing on NBS TV morning breeze.

He said whether all the 8 candidates show up or not, a national conversation will go ahead onFebruary 13, without fail.

Meanwhile, NRM task-force deputy spokesperson, Maria Mutesi, says President Yoweri Museveni has limited time left to market his manifesto before campaigns close on February 16th.

Once again, he has ducked out of the debate which the other candidates are attending.

President Museveni dodged the first debate citing a busy schedule while campaigning in Bushenyi district.

He later called the debate a talking competition fit for secondary schools kids.

Joshua Kitakule, the secretary Inter-religious Council of Uganda told KFM all the other candidates have confirmed participation in the second presidential debate.
