Dr. Besigye not interested in mayoral seat
The former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) leader Dr. Kiiza Besigye has refuted reports that he has been approached by members of the For God and My Country (4GC) pressure group to contest in the city mayoral bi-election.
Besigye says he cannot participate in an illegality since the courts of law have maintained that Erias Lukwago is still the lord mayor.
He says it would even be absurd if the embattled Lord Mayor contested in such and election.
