With just a day before the inauguration of Ugandan President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni after being declared winner of the February 18 polls, main opposition leader and losing election candidate, Kizza Besigye, has been ‘sworn in’ in Kampala in what he himself is calling “not an ordinary” swearing in.
Dr. Besigye, immediately after being sworn in stated that the elections in Uganda remain inconclusive as he was denied the right to appeal the outcome of the elections as provided for by the country’s constitution. He maintained that Museveni, who has been in power for 30 years, never won the elections.
The opposition leader stated that he was going to set up an interim government, in which he welcomed officials serving in Museveni’s government. It remains to be seen how Besigye’s government will function.
Meanwhile letters of invitation has been sent out to Heads of States and Diplomatic Missions for ‘Official swearing in ceremony’ of Mr. Museveni scheduled for tomorrow. There has been no comment [by Press time] from the Museveni Camp following this ceremony.
