The Executive Director of Uganda Media Centre and government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo, has lashed out at Dr. Kizza Besigye for seeking to resurrect his ‘fallen’ political career on the backdrop of General Kale Kayihura’s recent dismissal.

Opposition kingpin Rtd. Dr. Kizza Besigye yesterday addressed members of the press at his offices in Kampala following withdrawal of Gen. Kale Kayihura by President Kaguta Museveni from the helm of police.

Kayihura was a good person who accepted to be used – Besigye

Dr. Kizza Besigye at the briefing stated that Kayihura was simply a pawn thwarting any forces of opposition wedged against President Museveni’s tenure of power.

“Kayihura became a source of patronage; he became a political broker, paying people to support Mr. Museveni,” Kizza Besigye said.

Mr. Ofwono Opondo immediately launched a series of responses on twitter, a new media platform.
