He says in all the 60 years of Uganda’s independence, Ugandans have never witnessed what Kenya is going to witness today as Uhuru hands over to William Ruto.
“Frankly, I don’t envisage a day when Mr. Museveni will be handing over to another President, but I envisage a day when he’ll be gone, whichever way he goes. I envisage a day when Uganda will go through similar processes, a peaceful handover of power but not under Mr. Museveni. I envisage it when he is gone.”
Besigye says elections in Uganda are useless because Ugandans have no power. According to him, having a vote is to have the power to decide but of now Ugandans are void of this.
However, he says Kenyans have the power which enabled them to vote for a man who didn’t have the support of the state.
Dr. Kizza Besigye states that these are the reasons he doesn’t believe Uganda has opposition. Apparently, for him, it seems like it’s captors and captives.
“I must try to deal with the misnomer of opposition and government. What we have in Uganda is not opposition and government, its captors and captives. That means the captors have all the power. They captured our voice and wealth.”
Besigye said this ahead of the swearing-in ceremony of Kenya’s President, William Ruto. According to him, Uganda should learn a thing or two from Kenya.
