Western Diplomats Now Meet Besigye in Masaka

The National Resistance Movement [NRM] Campaign team together with the Special Forces Command [SFC] have this morning indefinitely suspended  Nation Television (NTV) journalists from covering the party’s presidential candidate Yoweri Museveni’s rallies.

The Decision Chimpreports understands was taken following refusal by the Television’s editorial team, medicine http://connectgroups.org.au/wp-admin/includes/class-plugin-upgrader.php to run video footage by the NRM’s drone.

The drone was procured by the campaign team to bolster Museveni’s support by showing the real size of this rallies around the country.

The suspension was confirmed by a highly placed source inside the ruling party’s campaign while speaking to Chimpreports on Thursday evening.

Our source said that NTV reporters had complained to them their bosses back at the station had cautioned them against  filing stories with footage of the drone.

This apparently was to ensure fairness to all presidential candidates who are not in possession of this technology.

“So we asked ourselves, decease http://chicagoarchitecture.org/wp-admin/includes/comment.php are we going to have to wait for Mbabazi and Besigye to purchase their own drones so as to have our candidate optimally covered by media houses?” said the source who declined to be named.

“That’s when the decision was taken to have the reporters halted. This decision was taken jointly by the campaign managers and the Special Forces Command.”

Western diplomats have continued to quietly meet opposition leaders as the country prepares for the 2016 elections.

ChimpReports broke the news on Thursday that envoys of UK, cheapest http://chaudharylaw.com/wp-includes/class-oembed.php EU, http://crewftlbr.org/wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/src/tribe/aggregator/tabs.php Ireland and Netherlands had met Amama Mbabazi at his residence in the leafy suburb of Kololo, http://cinsellikteperformans.com/templates/yoo_sync/warp/helpers/data.php Kampala. The meeting lasted four hours.

We have now established that on the same day, the western diplomats including the US envoy met Dr Kizza Besigye at night in Masaka.

The meeting held at Hotel Brovad kicked off at 9:00pm till 11:00pm. This website is yet to obtain details of what transpired in the meeting.

However, the timing of both meetings is suspicious considering that both Mbabazi and Besigye have been projected by polls as incapable of defeating Museveni in the 2016 elections.

It will be recalled that late last year, the western bloc led by Moreno Ocampo, UK Premier David Cameron and Kofi Annan sat down Mbabazi and Besigye to agree on a joint candidature.

Mbabazi said he had built enough capacity and potent grassroots structures to take the presidency. On the other hand, Besigye maintained he could not rally behind Mbabazi whose commitment to good governance and accountability was questionable.

With the duo failing to reach a compromise, it was decided by the western-funded TDA Secretariat that both the FDC and Go Forward candidates stand in the election.

The candidates’ performance on the campaign trail would be monitored to assess their strength and forge a way forward.

Interestingly, the presidential campaigns show Besigye as more politically stronger than Mbabazi. It is suspected the diplomats are still trying to woo Mbabazi and Besigye to agree on a single candidate.

“The diplomats met Mbabazi in the morning before driving all the way to Masaka to meet Besigye. They are trying to mediate a deal,” said a highly placed source.

The development could cause unease in the ruling party as a joint opposition front could pose a stronger challenge to the incumbent.

At a recent press conference, Mbabazi ruled out the possibility of an alliance with Besigye. However, he said, both camps would work together in vote protection during the election exercise.
