The press briefing which had been organised by Col. Dr. Kizza Besigye's self-proclaimed "People's Government" at their Katonga offices in Nakasero, ended prematurely after journalist stormed out over poor time management.

The journalists, who had waited for over two hours in the briefing room, became concerned after Besigye's team led by the Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze failed to show up on time which had communicated to the media.

The journalists said they could not stand the disrespect from the group.

"This is very unfair. Many of us came here minutes to 10:00 am and it is now midday, and nothing is going on," one of the journalists told one of the officials.

By midday, the meeting had not started, and the officials were just organizing seats for their bosses who were going to address journalists.

Journalists stormed out of the briefing room, forcing Nambooze who had just arrived to get on her knees apologising for the delay, but all her pleas fell on deaf ears.

As journalists left the premises, even Dr. Kizza Besigye was seen boarding his car and leaving.

With the support of clutches, Nambooze followed journalists outside the gate trying to plead, but in vain.

Nambooze who also serves as the Minister of Information in the self-proclaimed government was supposed to address the media on the status of their petition to the International Criminal Court (ICC).

The group started gathering signatures last year to back their petition to the International Criminal Court (ICC) dragging President Yoweri Museveni over alleged crimes against humanity.

Early last month, Nambooze said they had gathered over two million signatures.
