Kazibwe cannot visit all countries before the AU summit due July 10-18. That’s how she unleashed a powerful machinery to represent her. However, according to protocol, representatives have to be introduced by the fellow president.

Winnie headed to Nigeria while Cecilia has been in Eritrea.

The move however has been criticized by radicals in the opposition, accusing their leaders of working for Museveni’s interests.
