Byanyima asks Government to Explain Why Her Partner is in Prison
By Melanie Aanyu,
The executive director, United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), Winnie Byanyima has said she doesn’t understand why government decided to imprison her partner, Dr Kizza Besigye instead of focusing on the issues he raised.
She made the remarks shortly after visiting Besigye who is currently at Murchison Bay, Luzira Prison yesterday.
Byanyima said that she wants to understand why a man who is protesting high fuel and food prices and calling for measures to cushion the poor and unemployed is in prison while some military officers who are expressing partisan views on social media are free.
