A Sydney-based Ugandan cardiologist has denied he has ever received any Ugandan court summons to answer treason and murder charges. In a joint exclusive phone interview with The London Evening Post (The LEP) and Black Star News (BSN) of New York, Dr Aggrey Kiyingi who early this year declared his intention to challenge President Yoweri Museveni for the presidency when the country goes to the polls next year, said all he is aware of at the moment is what he described as ‘baseless allegations made in Ugandan newspapers’ about his alleged criminal role in various killings in Uganda.

 “I have never received any court summon and all I see are newspaper articles and reports,” Dr Kiyingi said, adding, “I have never been officially contacted by any court of law or the Ugandan government for that matter.” The heart surgeon who has duo Ugandan and Australian citizenship said: “This is typical of dictator [Ugandan leader Yoweri] Museveni’s modus operandi; to intimidate opponents with smear campaigns and fabricate criminal charges in order to stop them altogether from standing against him.”

He warned that the scare tactics being employed by President Museveni to stop his (Museveni’s) opponents from mounting a challenge against his presidency will not work this time with him. “Museveni has played a double game for far too long. I have started and will continue to expose Museveni for what he really is. Rest assured that I know Museveni’s tactics and I am not threatened or intimidated in anyway,” Kiyingi said.

    Dr. Kiyingi you are welcome, we need change in Uganda.

    The game is on. Let us play. Ugandans are fully awake and Dr. Aggrey Kiyingi is now a thorn in some people’s ribs. We look forward to it. Perhaps if Uganda had not issued too many bogus terrorist alerts and arrested far too many to get EVIDENCE out of them under duress, we would pay attention. Now, it is drama. Lay the country under seige. Make the people live in fear (but they got their sleep and peace) and terrorize them. Nothing lasts forever, not even November rain (#stolen). I just posted that article on FB and I am followed by many Ugandans so I will watch their reaction. Thanks LEP.

    We need to critically examine what Dr. Kiyingi is suggesting

    isn’t this ending up giving Ugandans hope for nothing?
