Born Again Federation Will Not Endorse Candidates

The Born Again Faith Federation will not endorse any presidential candidates in the February polls.

Pastor Joseph Sserwadda, the leader of the Born Again Faith Federation said this in an interview with Uganda Radio Network.

In 2006 general elections, leaders of some Born Again churches threw their weight behind President Yoweri Museveni. Some of the leaders openly campaigned for Museveni and urged their followers to vote for him.

But Pastor Sserwadda says that the federation has never backed any candidate and is not about to do it in this election. He explains that individual members of the federation are free to make their choice for president.

//Cue in: "We do not support...

Cue out: ...our nation."//

Eight Presidential candidates are participating in this year's general elections due on February 18.

The candidates are President Yoweri Museveni, the incumbent, Kiiza Besigye, the IPC candidate, DP's Norbert Mao, Abed Bwanika of PDP, and UFA's Betty Olive Kamya.

Other candidates are Jaberi Bidandi Ssali of people's progressive Party, UPC Olara Otunnu, and Sam Lubega, an independent.
