Photos: Besigye under house arrest?


Since last night, police is still deployed at the home of FDC presidential flag bearer, Kizza Besigye, in Kasangati.

Police took over Besigye’s home to prevent him from heading to Jinja in Eastern for a rally.

Besigye maintains that IGP, Gen. Kale Kayihura, is not acting within the law.

FDC has already sued the police chief accusing him of misusing the law to curtail their rallies.

According to FDC, the Public Order Management Bill doesn’t apply to their pre-nomination rallies.

However, the Electoral Commission yesterday announced a ban on all public rallies until November when the presidential aspirants will be nominated and confirmed as candidates.

Police, in response to the directive, decided to besiege homes of FDC politicians including the party spokesperson, Ssemujju Nganda.

Nganda has also been arrested and detained at Nagalama police station in Mukono.

In Kasangati, FDC leaders have started flocking in to check on their party presidential flag bearer who is under “house arrest”.

Among those on the scene is Aswa County, MP Reagan Okumu.

Other Opposition MPs are expected to visit the retired colonel too.

Meanwhile in Jinja, Kakinda stadium where Dr Besigye was meant to hold his rally has been sealed-off by police.

Besigye was also scheduled to commission the Kireka municipality FDC office.
