Opposition figure Kizza Besigye’s son Anselm has turned 21 years.
He was born September 1, 1999 in the neighbouring Kenya.
“Celebrating! Our son Anselm @akbesigye is 21 today!” his mother Winnie Byanyima said on Tuesday.
“Thanking family and friends who have been with Anselm on his journey. Love you,” added the UNAIDS executive director.
Followers were, however, irked by the fact that Anselm was donning a Kenyan bangle instead of a Ugandan one.
Winnie explained that Anselm is Ugandan, born in Kenya, lived in South Africa, Ethiopia, Kenya, among other countries.
“@akbesigye is a proud African!”
Anselm is a first-year intern at Harvard University.
He is currently living in Nairobi, Kenya.
Anselm grew up in New Jersey and went to high school in Connecticut.
Since his early childhood in Africa, Anselm has been dedicated to fighting poverty and bad governance in the global South.
His upbringing in the United States has also inspired in him a passion to grapple with labor rights and race relations in this country.
Anselm is considering pursuing a concentration in Social Studies.
He was a President of Debate Club at Oxford university in UK.
