Besigye, the leading opposition figure in Uganda was invited to the inauguration ceremony in Accra, owing to the partnership between FDC and President Akufo-Addo’s New Patriotic Party, through which he defeated the incumbent John Mahama in last year’s polls after two unsuccessful trials.

Last night’s meeting with the Ghanaian President took place at the latter’s private home Accra Ghana according to FDC’s Deputy Secretary General Harold Kaija.

The meeting was also attended by FDC President Rtd Gen Grigory Mugisha Muntu according to Kaija.

“They were later hosted to a Luncheon by their host at his country home in the Eastern province of Ghana,” he announced.

Besigye left Uganda on Thursday last week, after announcing his invitation on Television amidst praises for the Ghanaian democracy.

His trip to the West African country however, came under immense ridicule from his critics in Uganda, after allegations emerged that the new President’s inauguration speech was a duplicate.

Viral video clips from the grand function showed that President Addo had directly lifted parts speeches of former United States Presidents George W Bush and Bill Clinton.

Reputed Journalist Andrew Mwenda daubed Dr Besigye and his host as “parrots lacking originality,” in a tweet.

 

A one Amanya Justus also shared his sentiments on Facebook: “One of the greatest dangers of opposition politics in Africa is falling for mediocrity simply because the word change is used against the incumbents. If a leader cannot construct an original speech from his mind, then who is he?”
