Besigye son runs for president – in Oxford


A Besigye running for president? It sounds like a familiar story doesn’t it?

But this time it’s not Kizza, but Anslem, the son of the embattled Ugandan opposition leader, who is running to become a president. He wants to become the head of the Oxford Union, probably the most prestigious university debating society in the world.

He’s even trying to canvass support with an election video, which has already been viewed more than 50,000 times on Facebook.

But Mr Besigye Jr is unlikely to be placed under house arrest to maintain public order.

His father has been detained at his home since he threatened to protest following President Yoweri Museveni’s election victory last month.
