Besigye right to grace Uhuru celebrations

I write in reference to people’s reactions to Dr Kizza Besigye attending the Independence Day fete in Rukungiri yesterday. Many were upset that the FDC can accept an invitation or indeed be at a function where NRM leaders are.
I understand the upset because many think that the NRM is individualistic. The Independence Day celebrations are a national function. In countries where governments function, national occasions are just that. Everyone who contributes to the development of the country is invited as was the case with Dr Besigye.
