Dr.Kizza Besigye addressing the press conference today at his home in Kasangati.

Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential flag bearer Dr Kizza Besigye has chided his avowed ‘tormentor’ General Kale Kayihura, who has been dragged to court for allegedly failing to superintend his subordinates who were involved in beating the opposition kingpin’s supporters and bystanders.
Addressing a presser at his Kasangati home this morning, Besigye said that time has caught-up with those who have been traumatizing him, his supporters and innocent civilians, as witnessed by the indictment of Gen Kayihura.
“Things have changed; I am out of court and Kayihura is in,” the retired army colonel said.
Dr Besigye also scoffed at government over the proposed land legislation that is being mooted to give the state powers to take over land when it deems fit without compensating the current occupants. Besigye also revealed that currently most conflicts in the country are due to land related woes and therefore, if government insists on takeover of land ownership, it would culminate into a countrywide civil war.
“Most of the conflicts arise from land that isn’t registered. Our people have no knowledge about land registration as our land systems are not only weak but are bedeviled by systemic corruption,” he said.
Asked by reporters on what he thinks about the proposed scrapping of the constitutional age limit as suggested by Anne Maria Nankabirwa, Kyankwanzi district woman legislator and the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party district chairperson, viewed by many as a move to pave the way for President Yoweri Museveni to contest in the 2021 general elections, Dr Besigye said: “It is a gimmick, it is Mr Museveni’s project.”
