#Uganda Awaits #Besigye's Return

On the eve of Yoweri Museveni's swearing in to a fourth term as President of Uganda, all eyes are on defeated opposition leader Kizza Besigye and his rumored return to the country. Here is a look at some of the information circulating circa midday, May 11. Please feel free to edit this Chirpstory for accuracy as I am not able to observe the situation on the ground.

Anne Mugisha says KQ guys told Besigye UG govt would not allow them to land with KB on their passenger manifest #walk2work
a Siperia Mollie fan account @bwesigye
@Natabaalo ... Moi arrives in Uganda, while citizens are barred ... what does Moi think when he hears that?
Patrick Mugumya @mugumya
RT @baldaufji: @mugumya Besigye should have changed his name to OBL. hahahaha
Patrick Mugumya @mugumya
A pal in 'security' tells me that apparently the police decision to give Besigye 'VIP status' on his return angered 'the above' #walk2work
Patrick Mugumya @mugumya
My security pal says the police was giving too much and their escort car plans were deemed 'unacceptable' by you know who #walk2work
Patrick Mugumya @mugumya
Anne Mugisha says Besigye has rejected suggestions by KQ officials to allow him to fly to EBB on an evening flight #walk2work

Patrick Mugumya @mugumya

Grace Natabaalo @Natabaalo
A/c 2 Media Centre, the Heads of State arriving for swearing in ceremony start jetting in at 1pm. #Besigye picked wrong day to come home?
Ole Tangen Jr @oletan

Grace Natabaalo @Natabaalo
Media Centre's Fred Opolot to address press at 11:30am today on #Besigye's arrival.

Patrick Mugumya @mugumya
MT @XKMato: Is Lord Voldermort still giving his commands to Kayihura from Kiruhura #walk2work #uganda YEES he who must not be named
Patrick Mugumya @mugumya
Seems like the few of my friends I have talked to this morning are having serious issues with data connectivity
Photojournalist @echwalu
@oletan we're hearing reports of him reporting at 9am!
Patrick Mugumya @mugumya
MTN seems to get into problems everytime twitter is exploding with news of a govt imploding because of Besigye #walk2work
Ole Tangen Jr @oletan
@echwaluedward I think that reads 9pm. Or they slipped him by us and he is enjoying katogo already at Fairway. Unlikely.
