The Director General of Oxfam International and wife to four time presidential candidate Kiiza Besigye, Winnie Byanyima has come to the defense of her son Anselm Besigye.
This was after social media backlash over his sense of fashion which left people questioning the parenting of the influential couple.
After Byanyima posting a family photo, Ugandans started criticizing her and her husband for failure to raise their son in the right away.
This saw Byanyima jump to his defense saying they are still backwards and uncivilized.
The attacks directed at her son were numerous but just like any mother, she decided to take the battle on and defend him.
This is not the first time Besigye and Byanyima’s son is striking controversy back in the country.
Many of these have centred around his sexuality, sense of fashion and public conduct.
This has in turn discredited the parents especially Besigye.
