Dr. Kiiza Besigye, the president of the People’s Front for Transition (PFT), has returned from a two-month medical treatment overseas.
On Tuesday, Besigye announced his comeback on his social media accounts.
”Thankfully, I am back home at Kasangati. Having felt quite unwell during early February, I travelled abroad to seek a better assessment,” Besigye posted.
He added, “The doctors, among others, advised that I take a therapeutic rest, which I dutifully did- staying with family in Geneva..Always grateful to the Lord, the giver and sustainer of life. Grateful to family and friends who cared for me,”
Besigye has been absent from the public eye for some months, which has left many people wondering where he is.
His last public appearance was on December 30, when he attempted to hold end-of-year prayers at Nsambya Sharing Hall alongside Robert Kyagulanyi of the National Unity Platform.
Police, however, forbade them from entering Nsambya. According to police, the opposition leaders were detained as a result of the country’s rising terrorism threats at the time.
Besigye declared on Tuesday that he would be prepared to go once he had healed and felt healthy.
