Besigye Will Not Run In Uganda's 2021 Presidential Race
Ugandan opposition party, the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC), is at a crossroads after the party's founding president, Kizza Besigye, turned down their plea for him to stand in the 2021 general elections. Besigye, who has challenged President Yoweri Museveni for the presidency in the last four elections since 2001, has on each occasion accused the president of vote rigging and has been arrested a number of times by authorities. FDC chairperson Wasswa Biriggwa has said that "the party is not short of options for a presidential flagbearer even though it is operating in a complicated environment" - this after public rallies were banned by the government, to stem the spread of Covid-19.
