Dr Besigye was the chief guest during thanksgiving prayers organised by Denis Onekalit Amere, the Kitgum Municipality Member of Parliament-elect over the weekend. Amere defeated State Minister for Environment Beatrice Atim Anywar in the January 14, parliamentary polls.
However, speaking to URN today at the Constitutional Court on Thursday, Besigye said that to date, he still wonders how the Constitutional Court Justices came to sit and dismiss his petition in the presence of Attorney General’s representatives on a day that was never communicated to him and his lawyers.
In 2019, when Besigye was seeking the scrapping of the offence of unlawful Assembly, Constitutional Court Justice, Kenneth Kakuru declined to grant his petition and advised him to seek remedies in his own courts, or the Judge who swore him in as President.
A researcher says that among all the Luwero bush war veterans, Dr Besigye has always had a crystal clear understanding of why they went to the bush, fought, won, and knows what went wrong thereafter and how it can be fixed.
