Today Security minister General Elly Tumwine gave  the reasons as to  why they have never given former FDC president Kiiza Besigye a Heroes medal is because he is ever in prison.

Tumwine said this at the media centre today during an interaction with the media in a question and answer session. Tumwine said that one of the criteria for one to get a medal is good conduct which has eluded Besigye because he is ever in prison. Tumwine added that Besigye also has a lot of unfinished business in court, so,  such a person cannot be awarded.

Gen. Tumwine noted that the awards committee goes through a rigorous process to vet and confirm personalities to be awarded and after, they send the list to the president to sign as a symbol of acceptance to those to be awarded. Besigye is one of the bush war heroes who fought in the war that brought the current government. As a trained doctor, he was treating the soldiers who got injured during the war.
