Dr Besigye and Gen Sejusa enjoy a lengthy friendship that dates back to their university days, where both were student activists. Both joined the National Resistance Movement/Army (NRM/A), and Dr Besigye was later to become Gen Sejusa’s bestman.

The two were also instrumental in the post-1986 government but separately fell out with their boss Yoweri Museveni, saying he had deviated from the core principles of the struggle.

Recently, the two have been under custody, with Dr Besigye being restricted to his home in Kasangati while Gen Sejusa has been on remand in Luzira prison.
