Dr. Kizza Besigye has been in prison many times and he has been accused of many crimes include treason.

Former presidential candidate, Dr. Kizza Besigye has encouraged believers to forgive each other just as Jesus did to all who wronged him saying whoever forgives shall inherit the Kingdom of God.
In his Easter message to Ugandans, Besigye said, Jesus was persecuted, humiliated just as Museveni’s government has for years been torturing him however, he has honestly been forgiving and leaving them to God as Jesus did.
“Some people advised us to take up arms against the military junta but I advised them that we can’t kill fellow Ugandans as the targeted people clinging onto power have capacity to flee this country leaving innocent people to die for what they were not part of. For years I have been in struggle, my focus has always been on how to revive this country from Kleptocracy that goes ahead to misappropriate funds for people seeking for asylum.” He said at his Katonga road office.
He noted that the Economy, security is dysfunctional, as they celebrate Easter festivals, he implored them to take a stand against oppression, extremisms, adding that God will reward them for struggle.
With grief Besigye said they always talk about dialogue, but it cannot workout in the country where others disrespect the rule of law, many have been mysteriously killed but instead of surrendering that they have failed in their duties instead they continue hoodwinking Ugandans that the situation is in control.
Besigye believes that Ugandans can disable the current regime the was sworn in 2016 without using any violent mean that degrades human rights instead will continue exerting pressure till they surrender this country to other ‘focused leaders’.
Besigye who has for years launched various campaigns against the current regime said Jesus died for all believers’ sins; they are too willing to sacrifice for the betterment of this nation.
Easter, also called Pascha (Greek, Latin) or Resurrection Sunday, is a festival and holiday celebrating the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, described in the New Testament as having occurred on the third day of his burial after his crucifixion by the Romans at Calvary.
