Besigye meets 13-year-old boy ‘born at his public rally‘, named after him

 

 

Thirteen years ago Doctor Kizza Besigye was born in Moyo District, northern Uganda.

The day he was born, his mother Juliet Komaa from Asia Village, Vurra Parish in Moyo Town Council was one of the people who had gone to the political rally of the then Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate, Rtd Col Dr Kizza Besigye, who was in the race for a second time.

 

“This boy’s names are Dr Kizza Besigye! His mum is Komaa Juliet from Asia Village, Vurra Parish in Moyo Town Council. The young Doctor (his first name), got his names coz he was born in 2006, on the day I was in Moyo for presidential campaigns & mum had come to the rally!” the four-time presidential contender tweeted on Sunday.

Dr Besigye lost the contest and later petitioned court challenging the election results in which Mr Yoweri Museveni was declared the winner.

In 2006, the first election after the return to a multiparty political system a year earlier, Mr Museveni defeated his four opponents with a difference of 1,283,967 votes after obtaining 4,109,449 votes against their combined 2,825,482 votes.
