“For as long as Besigye remains in Prison, I will not be shaving hair off my body; for as long as it takes.”

He added that his second task will be to lobby members to support the reduction of members in the house.

“I will look for means to see that members in the house are reduced; look at this small building, it can’t even accommodate all of us during a session.”
