Uganda police force has raided and besieged Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] offices in Najjanankumbi.

FDC spokesperson, Ssemujju Nganda, has confirmed the development saying it is “happening now”.

The Police is commanded by Andrew Felix Kaweesi, who is the current in-charge of Kampala Metropolitan region.

FDC candidate Kizza Besigye was about to address a press conference when the police showed up and sealed off the party headquarters premises located along Entebbe road.

Police, according to reports, suspects that FDC is planning to declare parallel results from what the electoral commission has been declaring at Namboole.

EC chairman, Badru Kiggundu, has so far declared three sets of provisional results all showing President Yoweri Museveni ahead of Besigye.

In the first round of provisional results announced at midnight, Besigye polled 59,695 [32.4%] while Museveni led with 117,298 votes [63.17%].


In a second update Friday, Besigye got 738,628 votes making [33.4%] while Museveni who remains in the lead got 1,362,961 votes [61.75%].

The third round of provisional results received from 10,246 polling stations show that Museveni is still leading with 62.03% followed by Besigye with 33.4%.

Representatives of opposition candidates stormed out in protest of the results saying no one was tallying but EC had “ready-made” results.

Nganda says Kiggundu is reading from an entirely different script and his results are totally different from what they have at the FDC tally centre.


For example, Nganda says the FDC tally centre of the 673 polling stations, Besigye got 90,712 votes [50%] with Museveni trailing at 83,435 votes [46%].

He said the results were being shared by their agents placed countrywide.

Kiggundu earlier warned against announcing parallel results saying only the EC had that mandate.
