Besigye: I can’t breathe, police filling up toilets


Opposition leader Dr Kizza Besigye says he can nolonger breathe following a house arrest that has last for three weeks so far.

He says the hardest thing about his three-week long house arrest is the “emotional torture”.

“The police is choking the citizens,” he cried out.

“It is stopping us from breathing. I cannot breathe.”

The last time police occupied Besigye’s home, they were accused of filling his compound with “poop”.

Makerere university students made a challenge and travelled to Besigye’s home in Kasangati to “clean up the environment”.

The students presented police officers with babies potties to prevent them from “defecating all over the place”.

Besigye now says the police currently at his home, invades the toilets of his neighbours and fill them up.

He filed a formal complaint with Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC) against his detention.

“I don’t have a lot of confidence in the Ugandan institutions but I will be pleasantly surprised if they do the needful.”

UHRC in turn said it would engage both the government to end the impasse with opposition.

The commission’s director Complaints, Investigations and Legal Services, Ms Ruth Ssekindi, said they want to initiate the talks between Besigye and President Yoweri Museveni.

The commission described as illegal the continued detention of the opposition leader.

President Museveni was declared winner of the February 18 polls with a 60.7 per cent of total votes.

Dr Besigye, the main challenger, was said to have scored 35 per cent.

FDC and former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi contested the results.

Mbabazi has already filed an election in the Supreme Court challenging the results.
