Ugandans have been resisting the dictatorship of Gen. Yoweri Museveni following the Wednesday Massacre. Separately, the International Criminal Court in Hague have finally acknowledged receipt of a petition to indict Gen. Museveni which was submitted in November last year by the People’s Government led by retired colonel Dr. Kizza Besigye and Kampala Mayor Erias Lukwago.
 
“The office of the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court acknowledges receipt of your documents/letter. This communication has been duly entered in the communications register of the office. We will give consideration to this communication, as appropriate, in accordance with the provisions of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court,” part of the letter from the International Criminal Court addressed to Dr. Besigye reads.
 
The entire process has been secretly and carefully done after the junta made several dangerous attempts to stop all the efforts of collecting signatures nationwide, notes Ronald Muhinda, Dr. Besigye’s aide.
 
“The People’s Government is grateful to our legal teams, volunteers who, in spite of the great intimidation, collected signatures from all parts of Uganda; and courageous Ugandans who signed to petition International Criminal Court (ICC) to have Mr. Museveni and others investigated,” part of a post on Facebook by Dr. Besigye reads.
 
He has encouraged Ugandans to continue gathering evidence of any crime against humanity especially in this period of election campaigning, and following the Wednesday Massacre when as many as 30 unarmed civilians may have been killed during protests around the country, after the arrest of leading presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi, a.k.a. Bobi Wine.
 
“The People’s Government continues to get more evidence of any crime against humanity committed in Uganda. Anyone with evidence of such a crime should bring it to our offices at Plot 6 Katonga Road or to our regional or district commissioners. You can still sign a form to join the petition,” Dr. Besigye added. 
 
After Gen. Museveni stole the 2016 election from Dr. Besigye who was then a presidential candidate, he conducted an unofficial swearing in and created a People's Government.
