Uganda polls: I can't speculate my chances of winning, says Museveni

10 December 2015, 16:07

Kapchorwa – Ahead of the 2016 Presidential elections President Museveni said he was not able to speculate on his chances of becoming head of state for a fifth term, reports the Daily Monitor.

Speaking at a press briefing in Kapchorwa, Museveni, who was joined by Kenyan Deputy President William Ruto, said he would not speculate on the upcoming elections.

This was after he was asked to reflect on his chances against his two rivals, Kizza Besigye of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) and the Go Forward candidate, Amama Mbabazi.

Despite Museveni’s humble response his party members have remained adamant he would emerge victorious.

The National Resistance Movement NRM Vice Chairperson for Eastern Region, Mike Mukula in Teso sub-region has also been prophesising Museveni’s victory assuring him more than 80% of the votes.

Ruto was in Uganda, allegedly to support Museveni.

Ruto, however, told The Citizen: "My visit is to confirm the partnership between Uganda and Kenya, enhance commerce and trade for shared future."

Ruto said Museveni had "been at this game for many years" therefore, had "irrefutable know-how and experience".
