Besigye: army support now above 90%

The Weekly Observer "He may have been threatened with “going six feet under” for claiming overwhelming support in the army but FDC President Dr. Kizza Besigye hasn’t given up on his controversial claim. In fact, he insists that his following in the army has grown over the last couple of years.
In remarks that are certain to anger the UPDF leadership, Dr. Besigye told The Weekly Observer that there is nothing illegitimate about claiming support of the army."
