Man makes pigsty from Museveni posters

2011-11-12 22:06
Kampala - Ugandan police say they have arrested a man for "abusing the presidency" after he built a pigsty out of old election posters featuring the president's face.

Officer John Kuusa says the 35-year-old taxi dispatcher's decision to construct his pigsty out of the images of President Yoweri Museveni led to his Friday arrest.

Kuusa said on Saturday that George Kiberu used the durable posters for the roof, the walls, and as plates for the pigs.

Kiberu says he did not know he was breaking the law. His friend Robert Mbalule says the posters were still on the streets after February's poll, won by longtime leader Museveni.

A recent report by an international rights group says government-backed harassment and repression of critics are increasing in the East African nation.
