Go Forward candidate, John Patrick Amama Mbabazi has said there’s need for him and Besigye to talk over the forthcoming elections due on February 18.

Mbabazi who adressed a press conference today at Mt Elgon Hotel, Mbale said there is need to protect the votes but the most urgent thing is him and Besigye having a common goal.
