Red Pepper tried getting in touch with one of Team Besigye members but he is yet to respond to our text messages.
Recently one of the Local newspapers quoted Besigye telling people in Luweero that he has no job and that he depends on his wife Winnie Byanyima who is the director of Oxfam International for a living,
“I have no job other than fighting for freedom. All my businesses went down,” Besigye told people in Luweero.
Currently, Besigye is in Eastern Region.
