After the release of Dr Kizza Besigye a fortnight ago, the outspoken opposition man says he will continue his defiance campaign.
Speaking to journalists at his party headquarters in Najjanankumbi, Kampala, Besigye who is also facing treason charges said he is not ready to keep quiet about the “robbery” of his votes.
“I have absolutely no intention to compromise my right as citizen of this country. Why should I account to anybody where I want to go? I am a free independent citizen with free rights to go anywhere and even change my mind and change direction,” he cautioned.
He said the struggle is trying to change his country. “From a country where citizens are today treated as subjects not the owners of the country. Where leaders have become the masters and citizens have become the subjects,” he said.
Referring to his rival President Yoweri Museveni, Dr Besigye said that Uganda has been reduced to a country where institutions of government belong to the “dictator” not to the people.
