UPDF RESPONDS TO BESIGYE LAND GRABBING CRY
According to UPDF spokesperson Brig Richard Karemire, Besigye has used the land for years but it does not belong to him.
A government daily has quoted Brig Karemire as saying: “This is our [UPDF] land”.
“If those using it think otherwise, they should go court.”
Besigye was three-decade president Yoweri Museveni’s personal doctor in the war that brought the current government into power.
He later served, in among other positions, as national political commissar.
According to National Leadership Institute (Nali) officials, Besigye grabbed the land during his tenure as national political commissar.
