The photo of former Forum for Democratic Change presidential candidate Dr Kizza Besigye cutting his hair in Oxford, US has evoked mixed reaction from his followers.
The four time challenges of president Yoweri Museveni yesterday posted a photo of him on social media and said: ”
Alex from Mutungo, Kampala, gave me a haircut today in Oxfordshire, UK. I was looking for barber shop when he called me!”
Although some Ugandans applauded Besigye for supporting a brother’s business, it did not go down well with of his followers who described him as a poser of sorts.
A one Muduka Abaasa commented saying:”People’s president will always be a leader not a ruler. That’s a reason you have alot followers even though you are not yet in state house. You are a true leader. Much blessing to our president and much appreciation to Alex for job well done.”
Mbabazi Scovia, another fan wrote, “Great, and he did it professionally Nha I wish I could have that chance of serving u chai or anything ed get more blsngs ur among doz pipo i yarn to meet..Respect #HE🙏.”
However, a one Nayebare Angello said, “This Besigye man also. A very thing he calls for attention attention……..I was looking for barber shop when he called me!…….the whole of you plus ‘the net work you claim to be having over there’ don’t have capacity to allocate for you Barber Shop??? OK, showing us how your cutting your valuable hair, how has it helped ordinary person like me? Can that solve unemployment, luck of drugs in our hospital, corruption, dictatorship, Increases in teacher’s salaries, stopping vote bribery etc etc as you always claim that they are current Uganda’s problems.
