Independent presidential candidate Eng. Elton Joseph Mabirizi has said that president Museveni is a coward who deserves no place at the table of men.
“Cowards have no place at the table of men #UgandaDecides. They speak in their bedroom curtains,” Mabirizi said yesterday afternoon responding to a question in a twitter session dubbed #AskMabirizi.
Museveni, the National Resistance Movement (NRM) presidential candidate on Friday last week dodged the live televised presidential debate at Serena Hotel.
Museveni on Sunday at a press conference argued that debates are for school kids.
“Debates were activities for school children. At Ntare School, we would travel to Bweranyangi Girls School and Buddo School for debates. Therefore I could not comprehend how prospective national leaders could embrace an activity for school children.”
Explaining why he did not show at the debate, he said that there was no time for him to travel from western Uganda to Kampala where the debate took place.
The debate attracted seven candidates including, Prof Venansius Baryamureeba, Ms Maureen Kyalya, Dr Kizza Besigye, Mr Joseph Mabirizi, Maj Gen Benon Biraaro and Mr Amama Mbabazi.
