Uganda police has Friday blocked the wife of opposition leader from entering their home in Kasangati Wakiso district.

Winnie has been away from home while her husband Kizza Besigye is still placed under house arrest.
She had gone to the Rwandan capital Kigali for a business summit.

“On my way 2 #WEFAfrica Kigali 2 tell African political & business leaders why & how growth shd lift ALL Africans up & out of poverty @Oxfam,” she tweeted before leaving the country.


On her return Friday evening, Winnie found police sealing off her home.

The officers demanded to check her thoroughly before they could allow her inside the house.

“Can’t believe this, I am being denied entry into my home! Unbelievable!,” she tweeted in anger.

“Here is president Museveni’s police denying me entry into my own home! Where is this country headed?” she wondered.


She said a police car was blocking their farm entrance and could not allow her in.

“I am asked now to open my suitcases first!”

One of the policemen who she described as “arrogant security man” told her to either to open her luggage or go back.

“Here is the arrogant security man telling me I won’t enter my home unless I open my bags to be checked!”
Winnie, the former Mbarara municipality Member of Parliament has been avoiding direct politics ever since she joined Oxfam international.


Police has however done everything possible to take confrontation to her doorstep.
