The newly appointed Leader of the Opposition in Parliament Winnie Kiizza Tuesday visited Forum for Democratic Change former presidential candidate Kizza Besigye in Luzira prsion where he’s being held over treason charges.
Addressing the media at Luzira Prison shortly after she met the four time challenger of President Yoweri Museveni, Kiiza said Besigye is not happy with police arrests of Opposition Members of Parliament and supporters.
“He’s also not happy with delayed trial of those who were arrested,” she said.
The visit and her remarks come at the backdrop of indiscriminate arrest of members of the Opposition by police on grounds that they are involved in subversive activities.
The latest victim is FDC Deputy Electoral Commission chairman, Michael Kabaziguruka who also doubles as the Nakawa Division member of parliament after he beat the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM)’s Fred Ruhindi in the February 18 parliamentary elections.
Besigye is being held in Luzira Prison on remand after he was charged with treason at Nakawa Magistrate’s Court.
