Supporters of Uganda’s opposition leader Kizza Besigye did something that is very rare.
In a country where voter bribing was said to have been common in the February 2016 election, Kizza Besigye’s supporters did the opposite on Monday, July 25.
Instead of looking for handouts from the Forum for Democratic Change leader, they gave him what they had as he passed through the Kampala streets.
Kizza Besigye has been President Yoweri Museveni’s fiercest political opponent.
On Wednesday, May 11, he swore himself in as the president of Uganda despite Museveni officially being announced the winner of the February poll.
He was then arrested and charged with treason but the case was later dismissed as the state failed to produce enough evidence.
