The Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential flag-bearer, Patrick Oboi Amuriat, recently vowed to finish his 2021 election campaign barefooted after losing his pair of shoes during a scuffle with the police on his nomination day.
Mr Amuriat said he will traverse the country barefooted in solidarity with the population who have been suffering for the last 35 years.
“I am going to move barefooted in solidarity with those whose rights have been violated by police during this regime. This is a manifestation that Ugandans today belong to a few individuals who have enslaved the rest,” he said.
However, according to the latest images obtained by this website, the villager’s feet have started to swell.
Medical experts say that this usually arises when you are on your feet a lot, gravity pulls blood into the veins of your legs, and some of the water in the blood enters the tissues of your legs and feet, causing them to swell.
