Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni is taking part in his first televised debate ahead of elections on Thursday. Mr Museveni snubbed Uganda’s first pre-election debate last month, saying such events were for schoolchildren.

The Ugandan leader, 71, is seeking to extend his 30-year rule by winning a fifth term in government.

The focus of the second debate is foreign policy and national security – considered to be Mr Museveni’s strongest points.

The first debate focused on domestic issues like health and education.

Eight presidential candidates are contesting Thursday’s polls. Ugandans will vote in parliamentary and local elections on the same day.

For the first time, Mr Museveni and his National Resistance Movement will face two strong opponents, says the BBC’s Catherine Byaruhanga.

They are Kizza Besigye, the veteran opposition leader, and Amama Mbabazi, a former prime minister and close ally of the president.

Mr Besigya leads the Forum for Democratic Change, while Mr Mbabazi is running as an independent with the GoForward pressure group.

Major issues for voters include persistently high unemployment, corruption and the quality of public services.

This money is given to each team that finishes third in the group stages of the biennial football tournament organized by CAF. 

CHAN 2016: Cranes’ Group D results

Uganda 2 Mali 2

Uganda 0 Zambia 1

Uganda 1 Zimbabwe 1

Despite being eliminated in the ongoing Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) in Rwanda, Uganda Cranes will be assured of walking away with $125,000(sh435m).

This money is given to each team that finishes third in the group stages.

The Cranes played to one-all draw with Zimbabwe on Wednesday to finish third in Group D with two points, following another draw in their opening game with Mali.

Veteran striker Geoffrey Sserunkuuma, who came on as a substitute in the second half, scored the only goal for Uganda in added time after William Manondo had given Zimbabwe a 49th-minute lead.

This was Cranes’ third consecutive time they were participating in the biennial football tournament organized by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) exclusively featuring players from domestic leagues.

On all three occasions, Cranes have failed to progress beyond the group stages. The winner of the tournament on February 7 will receive $750,000 (sh2.6b) while the runners-up will settle for $400,000(sh1.39b).

Losing semi-finalists and quarterfinalists will each take home $250,000 (sh870m) and $175,000 (sh609m) respectively. The last team in each of the four groups will earn $100,000(sh348m).

The Uganda v Zimbabwe result meant that Zambia and Mali, who played to a goalless draw in the other Group D game, proceeded to the quarter-finals with seven and five points respectively.

Cranes will now shift focus to the 2017 Nations Cup qualifying double-header against Burkina Faso in March.
