“Based on what I see at Serena International Conference Center. The old man with the hat will attend the second presidential debate which he had initially called a talking competition of Kids in high school.
If I was to vote one of the moderators I would vote Mr. Oscar Ssemweya the Principal of Taibah Schools and Moderator of Capital Gang a radio show every Saturday, you can hardly know his political affiliation.
I hope this Presidential debate will be better than the one we witnessed were to me Major General David Biraro emerged as the best.
BTW the conference center where the Presidential Debate is going to be was constructed by Field Marshall Idi Amin Dada (RIP).
Suprisingly President M7 has never said anything good about Idi Amin.
Those of us who care to read our history know that no President has ever loved Uganda like Idi Amin.
For you, Ugandans living abroad our embassies you see where you live were constructed by Idi Amin.
If you believe Idi Amin was a Real Nationalist, type RIP.”

On the Capital Gang this Saturday,
We shall be hosting Dr Kiiza Besigye. After a hectic campaign he won the vote to become Forum for Democratic party presidential flag bearer. He will probably win the head of The Democratic Alliance position as well. So what is next? Will he boycott elections if electoral reforms are not made? How does he handle those who opposed his position?
What is his response to Amanya Mushega’s open letter to him?
What is his opinion on the JPAM factor? Isn’t Amama stealing all the opposition supporters?
Listen to 91.3 Capital FM or stream live on capitalradio.co.ug on Saturday 12th.
The Forum for Democratic party delegates conference is happening now at the Nelson Mandela National stadium. The main contest of who will become party flag bearer in 2016 elections is between Gen Mugisha Muntu and Dr Kizza Besigye .
About 1000 delegates from several parts of the country have turned up though a scuffle unfolded when some delegates turned up without accreditation and were stopped from accessing Namboole.
FDC secretary General, Nandala Mafabi thanked all the funders and the MPs for the financial support they have extended to the party.
He also added that,”today is another day to conclude unfinished business by National Executive Committe and I recognise the two presidential contenders – Dr Besigye and Rtd Gen Muntu. It is important for you to know the matter is set to be concluded today. We are going to issue an extensive program.”
