FDC cancels ‘stay home’ protest


Nganda [M] addressing press today

Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) says it has halted the ‘stay home’ campaign held every Thursday as part of “Free My Vote” activities.

FDC spokesperson Ssemujju Nganda told journalists at a press conference on Monday that other ‪”‎Free My Vote” campaign activities will continue despite the cancellation of “stay home” campaign.

He explained that the campaign has already achieved its set objectives.

It was launched to force government release former party presidential candidate Kizza Besigye from house arrest at his Kasangati home.

Police says it has ordered the withdraw of its personnel from Besigye’s home.
On April 1, the Inspector General of Police Gen Kale Kayihura ordered the Kasangati Police Station Divisional Police Commander to end a police siege that had lasted 47 days.

Kayihura said this was an act of goodwill and expected Besigye in turn to denounce his defiance campaign.

On Sunday, Besigye beat police surveillance and stormed Namirembe cathedral where he attended prayers.
