The IRCU confirms that the earlier planned second presidential debate will not happen due to lack of funds to organize the event.
In 2016, the country hosted its first presidential debate series and here candidates were able to tell the country what they had in stock for them if they were elected presidents.
Early in this electoral process the inter religious council of Uganda had confirmed to host the second presidential debate but today MSGR Charles Kasibante revealed that this will not happen following failure to raise the needed funds to hold the event.
On the 6th of November 2020, the inter religious council of Uganda, the elders forum and inter party for dialogue announced that the country will be holding its second presidential debate to give a balanced platform to all the 11 presidential candidates to tell the country what they have in stock for them.
MSGR. Kasibante further expresses his concern that this time Ugandans are not going to get a chance to hear from the candidates on what they have for them to help them make a proper decision on 14th January 2021.
