Besigye arrested, whisked away


Opposition leader Dr Kizza Besigye has been arrested again.

Besigye was intercepted by police Saturday as he tried to leave his home in Kasangati, Wakiso District.

Dr Besigye was taken to Naggalama Police Station in Mukono District where he is being held.

The former Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate’s arrest comes just hours after a group of members of the Opposition told journalists at his home that they plan to petition parliament over his continued house arrest.

“Next week, we are going to look for draft a petition and signatures from MPs to recall Parliament to discuss the continued detention of Besigye. By Tuesday it will be ready,” said Mukono Municipality MP, Betty Nambooze.
