Latest Kizza Besigye Items
Uganda's top opposition leader pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of convening an unlawful assembly in a case stemming from the killing of a policeman in violent street clashes last week.
President Yoweri Museveni's costly inauguration Thursday turned into embarrassment, as thousands thronged the streets to cheer opposition leader Kizza Besigye on his return from Kenya, where he was recovering from a beating by Ugandan police two weeks ago.
Two people have been killed and 121 injured in riots that swept across this capital city Friday, a day after an opposition leader was dragged from his vehicle and beaten and pepper-sprayed by security forces.
The bookshelves of Uganda's top opposition leader reveal his ambitions: "The Audacity of Hope" by Barack Obama. "Winning" by former GE chief Jack Welch. Kizza Besigye's books are mostly about grass-roots mobilization and effective communication - skills that he is putting to the test as he tries to mobilize the masses against President Yoweri Museveni. These efforts have gotten him arrested four times in three weeks, most recently last Thursday, when police fired tear gas to disperse thousands of his supporters.
Voters who re-elected President Yoweri Museveni in a landslide in February never thought he would repay them by ordering soldiers to shoot them for walking to work.
Uganda's longtime president has won another term, the country's election commission said Sunday, but the top opposition leader alleged the election was fraudulent and vowed to reject the results.
