Jeannette Kagame, this site http://chatterblast.com/wp-includes/class-wp-metadata-lazyloader.php Margaret Wanjiru Kenyatta, diagnosis http://channelingerik.com/wp-includes/class-wp-embed.php Janet Magufuli, Janet Museveni, Michelle Obama, Lyudmila Putina etcetera; it is traditionally fashionable one could say, for most First Ladies around the world to want to carry the last names of their husbands.
This in most cases is to underscore the potency and significance of their marriages and family, behind the presidential scene.
But in the event that her husband Col Dr Kizza Besigye wins this month’s presidential elections, sharing his name will be the least of Oxfam International Executive Director Winnie Byanyima’s concerns.
And last evening she felt urge to emphasize this to her social media followers, who thought she perhaps wouldn’t mind as First Lady to be called Mrs Winnie Byanyima Besigye.
“My name is Winnie Karagwa Byanyima full stop,” she responded to one suggestive tweet, before adding, “Kizza Besigye is my spouse. He has his name and I have mine. I hope this clarifies. Thanks for asking.”
Pushed further by one Alice Ruhindi on whether she intended to become “Mrs Besigye,” the former Mbarara MP relied “I am not Mrs. Besigye period. Does it bother you?”
Byanyima, a staunch feminist is remembered during her time in Ugandan politics to have greatly pushed for women’s rights, a cause she has continued to champion on the global scene.
In one of her recent articles she stressed, “The empowerment of women needs to move beyond noble declarations and into the real world of concrete rights – starting with the crucial issue of equal property rights.”
President Yoweri Museveni who is also the Commander in Chief of Uganda’s Armed Forces on SUnday exhibited his expertise, page http://coronaextra.com.au/wp-content/plugins/duracelltomi-google-tag-manager/integration/soundcloud.php tactics and skill at a shooting range exercise in Kyankwanzi.
The shooting range or firing range is specialized army exercise which is designed for firearms practice.
The exercise is voluntary for the legislators’ witness at the end of the retreat.
President Museveni briefly explained to them the importance of “being steady and calm as you aim and perfectly hit the target”.
He then gave an opportunity to some of the caucus members to fire gunshots at the targeted points.
The members that were brave enough to try out this adventure were assisted by some of the military instructors at the ranges.
The excited members came in groups of ten and where allowed to fire at the order of the military commander.
