Last month Ugandan politician Kizza Besigye made headlines here in the country when 22 year old photojournalist at the Standard Media group, Jeff Ochieng’ was believed to be his son due to their striking resemblance.

Jeff, whose mother passed on 10 years ago before she could tell her who his father was, told his story to a Ugandan newspaper. This attracted massive response and the Ugandan politician came out to say that he would be willing to meet up with Jeff.

The two finally met over the weekend at the politician’s home and took photos including an epic selfie that will make it even harder to believe they are not related.

I’ve finally met my look-alike! Fine dude! We’ve celebrated God’s work and will keep in touch. Kizza tweeted.


Enjoying lunch with my look-alike.
