The Minister for ICT and National Guidance Hon. Frank Tumwebaze has responded to the article published in today’s Daily Monitor (21st February 2017) which he said he was misquoted. The article was about proposed dialogue between President Yoweri Museveni and his bitter rival Kiiza Besigye of the FDC.
“My Brief Response to Monitor earlier today;
As I said before, Government is not aware of any planned or proposed “talks” or “dialogue” between President Museveni and former Presidential Candidate Dr Kiiza Besigye. Cabinet has not discussed anything to that effect. It’s wrong to give an impression that the so called “talks” are being pursued covertly and secretly. There is nothing like that. If there are people who want President Museveni and Kiiza Besigye to meet and talk, let them say so and make known the issues they want to present to the President,” Frank Tumwebaze.
