On September 1st, the Vance Center was pleased to host Dr. Kizza Besigye, a leading Ugandan opposition leader, human rights activist, and trained medical doctor, who gave a talk entitled “Fighting for Justice, the Rule of Law, and Democracy in Africa: Lessons from Uganda.” The African Affairs Committee co-sponsored this event during which Dr. Besigye spoke about his campaign to ensure that Ugandans “regain [their] citizenship.” Dr. Besigye’s talk is available here.
