During a press conference at the FDC headquarters in Najjanankumbi this morning, Besigye narrated what he has been up to in prison – basically nothing.

“I have been doing a lot of nothing, basically wake up, eat and sleep. In fact some people are saying I have gained a lot of weight,” Besigye joked.

“I tried to do some exercises in the field, but it’s dusty. I got flu and toned it down,” he said.
