Besigye, Bobi Wine Form Political Front Ahead of 2021 Uganda Poll

Uganda's two key opposition figures, Kizza Besigye of the Forum for Democratic Change and People Power leader MP Robert Sentamu Kyagulanyi, better known as Bobi Wine, have announced a strategy for joint political activities under the United Forces of Change, emphasising that it is not an alliance or a coalition but a vehicle they could use to "jointly speak out against injustice and bad governance". This comes on the same week as the landmark ruling by the Kampala High Court granting voting rights to incarcerated citizens and those living in the diaspora.
