Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] President, Mugisha Muntu, has crossed rumours saying presidential flag bearer, Kizza Besigye, was bowing out of the 2016 race.

Muntu made the remarks while addressing press in Kampala yesterday.

“We invited you here today to correct the record regarding false information that has been circulating in the media,” he said.

“Yesterday  October  29,  2015,  we  issued  a  statement  to  the  effect  that

discussions  are  underway  between  members  of  the  FDC  and  Hon.  Amama  Mbabazi  to  explore  grounds  for  cooperation  ahead  of  the  2016   electoral process.”

He said the discussions were still ongoing.

He said there were   false   interpretations   being   made   that   the   FDC candidate has bowed out of the presidential race.

The rumours said Besigye had given up the seat for Mbabazi who would become president and leave the retired colonel as his Prime Minister.

“We   would   like   to   emphasise   that   whereas   cooperation   discussions between the FDC and Hon.  Mbabazi are still underway, none of the candidates (certainly not the FDC one) has bowed out of the presidential race.”

He added: “We  strongly  believe  that  the  ongoing  discussions  which  have  been  held over the past three or four weeks between the FDC and Hon. Mbabazi are crucial  and  focused  to  the  shared  objective  of  a  regime  change  in Uganda.”

Muntu reaffirmed to the general public that Dr.  Kizza Besigye is still the FDC flag bearer in the upcoming elections and “reports that he has bowed out of the race are incorrect”.
